Fresh off a breakout role in the HBO series “Ballers,” Anabelle Acosta is poised to become one of Hollywood’s most sought after talents. She became a series regular on “Quantico” early in its run, playing Nathalie Vasquez, a former cop from Texas who’s driven, kick-ass, fiercely competitive and more interested in always coming out on top than being a team player.
Born in Havana, Cuba and raised in New York City, Acosta is a Meisner and Method trained actor and Julliard School alumni. Her extensive training also includes dance and stage. 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.”
Most recently, Acosta was seen starring alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the HBO series “Ballers” playing the long-time girlfriend of a two-timing, game-playing hotshot wide receiver, played by John David Washington. Acosta’s other credits include “Castle,” Supernatural,” and “Perception.”
