Izabella Alvarez is no ordinary teen. Instead of navigating the halls of junior high like her neighborhood friends, you are more likely to find her on a film set in Hollywood working with some of the biggest names in show business. Due to her demanding audition schedule, she’s home-schooled. She hails from Orange County, California and is of Hispanic Heritage.
Izabella caught the acting bug early on in her young life and started performing professionally when she was only six-years-old. Originally, it was her father who landed a national Walmart commercial; however, the casting director wanted a real-life family and asked if the Alvarez clan would participate. Collectively, they agreed and the shoot included not only her father but mother and brother Nick Alvarez, also a working actor.
It was on the set of that Walmart commercial that Izabella realized her passion for acting and knew what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. With the help, guidance and approval of her parents she got an agent and has since shot over half a dozen national commercials for Honda, McDonald’s, Hidden Valley Ranch, Kid Cuisine, and Ashford University, to name a few.
Most recently Izabella can be heard voicing the lead spunky character, ‘Ronnie Anne Santiago,’ in Nickelodeon’s “The Casagrandes.” The animated series tells the story of 11-year- old Ronnie Anne after she moves to the city with her older brother Bobby and her mom, where they now live with their big, loving multi-generational family, the Casagrandes. By depicting stories based on Mexican-American and Latino themes, “The Casagrandes” is a bridge to Latino culture.
Izabella has also worked on several television shows, including Season 4 of Showtime’s hit series “Shameless,” as well as “Teachers,” a new comedy on TVLand and “Westworld,” on HBO. Her role on “Westworld” led Izabella to work with prestigious actors, including Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood and Clifton Collins Jr. who plays her father, as well as top producers and writers.
“It is a privilege to be a part of this new project created/produced by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and produced by J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk” said Izabella. “The cast is amazing, and it is going to be a great show!”
While it was great working on “Westworld,” one of her proudest roles to date was her recurring character on “Shameless.”
“It was an honor and also a lot of fun working with Joan Cusack and William H. Macy. I learned so much from them, and they were both very kind to me on and off the camera,” said Izabella.
Her first feature film as a lead character in “Collisions” is expected to be released in 2019. Izabella plays “Itan” and performs opposite actor, Jesse Garcia who plays her estranged uncle, and her missing mother played by actress, Ana de la Reguera. “Collisions” has played 19 festivals and won 13 awards including the prestigious Mill Valley Film Festival: Audience Award, Gold, US Indie Cinema in 2018 and Izabella winning “Best Actor Feature Youth” at the Woods Hole Film Festival in 2019.
LA Times writes, “Izabella Alvarez, a Rising Latina Star, commands desperation-ridden scenes with skill and maturity.”
“This was the toughest role I’ve ever done, but I loved every minute of it. We truly became a family while filming and have a deep respect for each other. I’ll never forget this experience”, said Izabella.
Lastly, Izabella has joined Walt Disney Pictures’ “Magic Camp” feature film starring Adam Devine, Gillian Jacobs and Jeffery Tambor which is slated for 2020 release on Disney+ digital platform.
Along with her fellow acting friends, Izabella has recently created the #TeamYoungActorsCare organization. Through film, media and charity work, they hope to reach the masses and make a positive impact in the world. #TeamYoungActorsCare promotes the message that young people can make a big difference by working together and helping others in need. Izabella participates in various charity events throughout Southern California, most recently St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer.
