Andrea Navedo is an American actor and singer, best known for her portrayal of ‘Xiomara Villanueva’ in the widely popular comedy–drama series ‘Jane the Virgin,’ a loose adaptation of the Venezuelan telenovela ‘Juana la Virgen,’ created by Perla Farias. Her role received tremendous acknowledgement, and she claimed it was because she could relate to the character, having been raised by a single mother herself. She was born and raised in New York and belonged to a low-income household. Having grown up watching telenovelas with her grandmother, she always aspired to be an actor. While still in college, Navedo was cast in her first daytime soap opera, ‘One Life to Live,’ as a series regular. She has also played a pivotal role in the ‘NBC’ crime series ‘Law & Order.’ She spent the next few years playing several supporting and recurring roles on shows such as ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent,’ ‘Damages,’ and ‘Blue Bloods,’ until she was cast in ‘Jane the Virgin.’ The hugely popular actor is active on social-media channels such as ‘Instagram,’ ‘Twitter,’ and ‘Facebook,’ which she uses to communicate with her fans and to promote her ongoing shows. She currently stays in New York with her husband and children.
