American actress Adria Arjona is best known for appearing in movies and TV shows like True Detective, Person of Interest, Narcos, Emerald City, Good Omens, and 6 Underground, among others.

She was born on April 25, 1992, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. As of 2022, she is 30 years old. Her mother, Leslie Torres, is Puerto Rican, and her father is Ricardo Arjona, a renowned Guatemalan singer-songwriter.

Adria spent much of her childhood traveling with her father, who took her on his tours. In an interview with her Morbius co-star Jared Leto for Interview Magazine, she revealed that she had been a frequent attendee of her father’s concerts, particularly those held in and around Latin America.

Additionally, she remembered helping her father sell tour merchandise. And in the same interview, she revealed that she spent much of her life on tour buses due to her father’s hectic schedule when she was with him.

Adria Arjona has had an interest in acting since Young age

Adria has now established herself as a hot Hollywood actress; however, it took her time to get to this level, despite being the daughter of a well-known Guatemalan singer. And one of the reasons is that her father decided not to let things be easily given to her.

So, when Adria moved to New York City at 18, she began working double shifts – as a waitress and hostess – while attending the esteemed Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

She told People about those moments, “I learned the value of money and the significance of hard work. It aided me because I was able to get back on my feet, and I believe I can now work 16-hour days as a waitress.”

In the same interview, she talked about her parents. “I have a mother who is extremely spiritual and positive and guides me through every obstacle in my life,” she stated about her mother.

After that, she talked about her father and said, “He motivates me and pushes my limits and makes sure that I’m always growing as an artist. He is constantly making me cultivate my head, not just my physicality.”
