RAQUEL CASTRO was born on November 17, 1994. By the time she could speak she was also singing, a talent she inherited from her dad Albee, a singer/songwriter. Her mom Kathy, an actress/songwriter, discovered Raquel's talent for performing. She sent in her pictures to Persona Management, and was immediately signed.
By the age of four, Raquel had already filmed a children's safety video for Boo Boo Productions. She had also recorded several children's songs, which will soon be released with a companion book.
Raquel made her television debut on HBO's A Little Curious. She also appeared in Nick Jr., Michael Moore's The Awful Truth, Third Watch, several episodes of Sesame Street and numerous commercials.
Raquel lives in Long Island with her parents, her two brothers and two sisters. She studies gymnastics and is on her third belt in karate. Raquel has two ferrets (Mia and Chia) and hopes to one day appear in a movie with them. One of Raquel's dreams has already come true. She wanted, some day, to meet her idol Jennifer Lopez. How ironic that in Raquel's first film, she plays her daughter.
By the way, Raquel was named after her mom's favorite actress Raquel Welch.
