Who is Jenna Ortega?

She expressed her desire to begin acting toward her mother when she was six years old, but her parents disapproved. “One day my mother gave me a book of monologues to shut me up. I played the part of a hysterical person, I was crying, and she did not understand what was happening.”

“I explained to her that it was from the book she had given me.” She put the video on Facebook at that point, and an old school friend noticed me and connected me with a casting director. The performance was convincing.
