A teen actress, Jenna Ortega is best known for playing Darcy in the Netflix sitcom, Richie Rich. Prior to that, she had gained some attention for portraying young Jane in the comedy-drama, Jane the Virgin, a role that she ultimately continues to play to this day.
Born on September 27, 2002, in Coachella Valley, California, Jenna Ortega has been interested in acting ever since she was six years old. Though it took her a while to pursue her mother, she eventually began receiving auditions at age eight.
How Jenna Ortega Became Famous
Prior to her big break, Ortega played a few minor roles in the shows, Rob, CSI: New York, and Rake. It wasn’t until she was twelve years old that she landed her first “big” role in the comedy-drama, Jane the Virgin.
Based loosely on a Venezuelan telenovela, it centered around a young, religious Latina by the name of Jane. While Gina Rodriguez portrayed the character, Ortega had played the part of Young Jane in a few flashbacks.
Ultimately, it was her stellar performance in the show that led her to be cast as Darcy in the sitcom, Richie Rich a year later. Released in early 2015 via Netflix, it saw the young actress acting alongside actors Jake Brennan, Brooke Wexler, Joshua Carlon, Lauren Taylor, and Kiff VandenHeuvel.

In 2016, she also reprised her role as the princess in the made-for-television film, Elena and the Secret of Avalor.
