Born in Havana Cuba and raised in New York City, Acosta is a Meisner and Method trained and Julliard School of Drama alumni. She started her early acting and modeling career in New York City appearing in a series of national commercials and print ads. Her first big break into the acting world came in 2010 when she was cast for the lead role of Kelly in the independent film “We Made This Movie.” She was previously honored as one of Variety‘s 10 Latinos to Watch in 2016.
