Charlotte Vega

Charlotte Elizabeth Vega (February 10, 1994 in Madrid) is a Spanish actress and model, known for her role in the 2014 Spanish film The Misfits Club, the lead role in the 2017 Irish film The Lodgers, and main roles in two television series during 2015 – season 3 of the Spanish series Velvet and the single season of the Spanish-British co-production The Refugees.

Early life

Born in Madrid and raised in Barcelona, Vega’s parents are both British-born, although her paternal grandparents were from Andalusia. As a child, her father would speak Spanish to Vega and her brother, while her mother would communicate in English. When asked about her background, she said in a 2018 interview:

“I feel very Spanish at times and then other times I’ll feel very British. Sometimes Spanish people can be very touchy and overly friendly and I can feel a bit more distant. Other times, I’ll be with British people and think, oh they’re very cold and distant and need some more Spanish in them!”

After taking improv classes and enjoying them, she left equestrian school at the age of seventeen to focus on her career as an actress.
