American writer, film producer and actress Cerina Vincent, well-known for her role as Maya in “Yellow Galaxy Rangers,” caught the public eye after the TV show became a hit and received a lot of positive reviews among teens.
Age, Early Life, and Education Background
Cerina Vincent, who has had a knack for performing and acting since she was a child, was born under the Aquarius zodiac sign on 7 February 1979, in Nevada, USA so is 42 years old as of 2021. She was brought up together with her sister, Angela Rose and brother Gino Vincent, by their parents whose names are not known to the public, but are believed to be Americans of Irish and Italian descent. Her mother was a dance instructor, who persistently encouraged Cerina to pursue a career in the showbiz industry.
The Las Vegas-born star went to Diskin Elementary School, where she took part in Christmas productions; Cerina also appeared in Las Vegas’ Cultural Affairs Division-sponsored Rainbow Company Youth Theatre productions. She joined Durango High School and matriculated to Marymount College on a scholarship, which meant that she relocated to New York. While in college, the famed actress took several random jobs, and also frequently went for auditions, and was selected to appear in a USA Network’s USA High commercial. Cerina became very busy making appearances in movies and TV shows and had to quit college to focus on her career.
Career and Awards
Cerina made her acting debut in 1999, when she featured in the Billy D. William-starred “Fear Runs Silent” thriller film as an impolitely unruly teenager.
She landed a major role during the same year in the TV series “Power Rangers Lost Galaxy,” in which she featured as Maya. Following her praised performance, she was selected to make appearances in other films and TV series, including “Ally McBeal” in 1997, “Felicity” in 1998, “Undressed” by MTV (1999), “Malcolm in the Middle”(2000), and the “Son of the Beach” sitcom, among others.
Cerina’s portrayal of Maya made her very popular among kids, and so she landed a role that got her an image makeover, in 2001’s parody teen movie entitled “Not Another Teen,” in which she appears naked throughout the whole film.
In the year that followed, she was cast in the R-rated comedy horror film “Cabin Fever”, in which she also appears nude in most of the scenes, but this time, she informed the filmmakers that she was cautious about being typecast in roles that required her to expose herself, and requested them to revise the role to her liking, which meant that Cerina got into a minor clash with the director of the film, Eli Roth. During an interview held in 2011, she commented on how it was to perform naked in a film for the first time, saying that ‘It is very weird and hard because your body is very personal. It was, however, easy for me to shoot that scene because everybody was professional and the character I portrayed was ridiculous – I did a wide range of accents in the comedy movie, and I found it very funny.
Shooting the scenes was the easy part, the hard part that will make anyone question their decisions is the fact that the film will be out there forever and ever … it messes up your head a little bit but I don’t have any regrets.’
Before the Nevada-born actress landed a starring role as Danielle in 2005’s “It Waits” horror film, she was assigned various minor roles in several films through 2004-2005, including “Intermedio,” “Conversations with Other Women,” and “Murder-Set-Pieces.” In the years that followed, Serina appeared in 2006’s “Seven Mummies,” 2007’s “Everybody Wants to Be Italian,” and “Just Add Water” in 2008.
She also featured in various TV series, such as “Two and a Half Men” that premiered in 2003, 2010’s “Mike & Molly,” “The Walking Dead: Cold Storage” (2012) and several more. She’s worked as a producer too, and is known by many for producing the short film “Skypemare,”.
