If you are one of them, let us tell you all about the life and work of this talented and beautiful actress, who was number 87 on For Him Magazine’s list of 100 sexiest women in the world in 2017, and is today one of the most popular young celebrities with over 180,000 followers on her Instagram account, while her official Facebook page has been followed by over 55,000 people.
Early life, family, and education
Andrea Londo was born under the zodiac sign of Scorpio on 7 November 1992, in San Diego, California USA, thus she holds American nationality although she was raised just across the border in Tijuana, Mexico – her ethnicity is of mixed American and Mexican descent, and Andrea is a so-called ‘border child’. In her interview for yuplife.com, she said about her heritage: ‘Being Mexican-American, for me, is very exciting, because I believe like I grew up as a traveler between two nations, two cultures, and two distinct groups of people with totally distinct points of view and thinking.’
She hasn’t spoken about her parents, so nothing is known about them, and she also hasn’t shared any information regarding any siblings, thus her fans believe that she was raised an only child.
Speaking of her educational background, for 18 years she crossed the Mexican-American border every day to go to school, spending the first half of the day at school in San Diego, and then she would go home to Tijuana.
Andrea had an interest in acting from an early age, and dreamt about becoming a famous Hollywood actress. Thus upon matriculating in 2010, she didn’t enroll at college, but moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue an acting career, although she’d never taken any acting classes – as she said, she believed in herself.
Andrea made her acting debut portraying Carmen in the short movie “Pasaporte” in 2014, and then made her first television appearance in an episode of the reality series “Catfish: The TV Show” in 2015, followed by her role as Edie in “Faking It” in the following year.
In 2017, she was seen as Canela in an episode of the series “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders”, before she was cast to play her most notable role to date, as Maria Salazar in “Narcos”, also starring Pedro Pascal, Boyd Holbrook and Wagner Moura. The series follows the story, a chronicled look, at the criminal exploits of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar and many other kingpins, and it had 20 award nominations, including three Primetime Emmys, and won eight.
Her portrayal of Maria Salazar was her breakthrough role, and in the following year, Andrea was cast to play Cynthia in the action thriller “SuperFly” opposite Trevor Jackson, Lex Scott Davis and Jason Mitchell, followed by her role as Ximena in the series “Snowfall” in 2019.

As of July 2022, it is assumed that Andrea is single, and that she hasn’t been married or engaged. She doesn’t have children, although she spoke about her stepson, but the truth is that she meant her character’s stepson from the series “Narcos”, portrayed by Arturo Castro.
