The teen actress shot to fame on her early age when she played the role of Carmen Cortez, the young secret agent in the 007 spoof "Spy Kids" (2001). Her story of life began when she was born on August 27, 1988 in Miami, Florida, USA. She then spent her early years living on a nearby Florida farm for a while before her family relocated to California when she was just 4. There in the new place, her mother, Gina Rue, got a job with a talent agency. It wasn't until Gina spotted her precocity that she later brought Lex, that's her nickname, to an audition for Burt Reynolds' TV series “Evening Shade.” What a great start that she successfully landed the two-year gig on her first try.

She later went on playing Steven Seagal's daughter in “The Glimmer Man” (1996), Alec Baldwin's daughter in “Ghosts of Mississippi” (1996), and Michelle Pfeiffer's daughter in “The Deep End of the Ocean” (1999). In the year of 1999 she returned to TV series, playing the role of Wendy Stiles, Alfred Molina's daughter in CBS' short-lived sitcom “Ladies Man.” Just before she launched into the galaxy of superstardom, she acted in "Follow the Stars Home" (2001). Shortly thereafter, she went in to audition for a Robert Rodriguez movie “Spy Kids” (2001). She might be the only 10-year-old kid among its other casts who were 8, but Rodriguez quickly yet certain spotted her talent. “Spy Kids,” which also featured Antonio Banderas, Carla Gugino, Alan Cumming, and Tony Shalhoub, tells about two preadolescents who must save their secret-agent parents from the grips of a madman bent on destroying the world.
