She is also known for her roles as Monica "Darling" Castello in the action crime film Baby Driver (2017), Nyssiana in the cyberpunk action film Alita: Battle Angel (2019), and Madam M in The Fast and the Furious spin-off film Hobbs & Shaw.

Early life

Born in Mexico City, Mexico, González is the only daughter of former Mexican model, Glenda Reyna, and Carlos González. Her father died in a motorcycle accident when she was twelve; she has cited her father's death as a strong influence in her career. She has one brother, Yulen, who is twelve years older than her. She attended two private bi-lingual schools, Edron Academy and the American School Foundation, both located in Mexico City. She completed two years of a three-year course at Televisa's acting school, Centro de Educación Artística, before she was cast as the protagonist in the 2007 teen-oriented telenovela Lola...Érase una vez at 16.

Acting career

2007–2009: Career beginnings

From 2003 through 2004, González studied acting at the M&M Studio, an acting school in Mexico City run by famed actress, Patricia Reyes Spíndola. At age 14, she was accepted into Televisa's famous acting school, Centro de Educación Artística in Mexico City. While attending school, she was first spotted by producer and director, Pedro Damián, best known for his success with Latin pop band, RBD. Two years later, Damian cast González in a remake of Argentina's famous children's telenovela, Floricienta. She portrayed Lola Valente, the lead female protagonist in Lola, érase una vez. The show began filming in late 2006 and debuted in Mexico on 26 February 2007. It was later shown in various countries throughout Latin America and United States. Following the completion of Lola, érase una vez, González, accompanied by her mother, moved to New York City briefly to attend a three-month course of acting classes at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in the spring of 2008. She returned to Mexico City in early fall of that same year.

In April 2009, was cast in an episode of the popular crime drama television series Mujeres Asesinas as a supporting character for the second season. She starred alongside Mexican actress Susana González in the episode Tere, Desconfiada, playing the teenage antagonist, Gaby. González commented that she was informed about the casting call while she was preparing to release her first solo album Contracorriente.

In 2010, Nickelodeon announced that González would be starring in teen sitcom Sueña conmigo, where she played the characters of Clara Molina and Roxy Pop. For the role, González traveled to Buenos Aires to film in April 2010. She lived in Buenos Aires for a year, travelling back to Mexico City on breaks during the production of the series. When filming ended in February 2011, Gonzalez returned to Mexico City. The show was produced by Nickelodeon and Televisa, and aired on 20 July 2010 in Latin America and Europe. Because of its success in Argentina, the cast performed several concerts in throughout Argentina from March to July 2011.

In 2012, González filmed Casi 30, a comedy-drama directed by Alejandro Sugich. González plays Cristina, an 18-year-old ballet student who falls in love with Emilio, the film's lead character. The film marks González's acting debut in cinema. In 2013, the movie premiered at several film festivals in Mexico, but it premiered nationwide in Mexico on 22 August 2014.

Originally, Mexican producer Pedro Torres offered González the lead role of Sofía López-Haro in his television show, Gossip Girl: Acapulco, the Mexican remake of the hit American television series, Gossip Girl.

To promote the single, she performed at televised music festivals and concerts across Mexico. Because of the Sueña conmigo musical tour in Argentina, González was unable to embark on a longer tour for the album or release a second single.
