Maite Michelle Rodriguez was born July 12, 1978 in a family of Dominican and Puerto Rican. Parents of the future film actress met in America, where his father served in the military.

Indeed, Avatar met the expectations of the creative group – the amount of box office receipts reached the same level as the Oscar-winning Titanic . While the audience watched the interplanetary upheavals, the actress starred in “Fast and the Furious 4” and “Machete”.
In 2013, fans of the American woman in earnest sounded the alarm. Michelle Rodriguez admitted in an interview that she intends to suspend her acting career to engage in writing.
