MACHETE

MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ (Luz) is a versatile actress known for the ability to combine her "tough girl” physicality with a natural beauty and unforced sex appeal.

Having last been seen in James Cameron's sci-fi epic, "Avatar,” and the highly successful film, "Fast & Furious,” Rodriguez recently wrapped production on the film "Trópico de Sangre,” in which she both stars and co-produces in association with her production company Cheshire Kat. Additionally, she has completed filming "Battle: Los Angeles” opposite Aaron Eckhart for producer Neal Moritz.

Born Mayte Michelle Rodriguez in Bexar County, Texas, she worked as an extra for two years, satisfying her curiosity about movie making. Rodriguez decided to pursue acting and landed her first audition from an ad she spotted in Backstage West and soon she was acting in the hit indie film "Girlfight.” The role garnered Rodriguez numerous awards and much critical acclaim.

Still going strong off the success of her acting debut, she went on to co-star opposite Danny Glover in the Showtime drama "3 A.M.” and the adrenaline-charged mega-hit "The Fast and the Furious,” opposite Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. An avid video game fan who has since lent her voice to various popular games including "True Crime: Streets of LA,” "Driver3,” and "Halo 2,” Rodriguez jumped at the opportunity to take a role in "Resident Evil,” an adaptation of the hit game series.

Her other feature film credits include "Battle in Seattle” opposite Charlize Theron, "Blue Crush,” the summer blockbuster "S.W.A.T.” opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Farrell, and "Control,” with Ray Liotta. In 2005, a new chapter of her career would begin when she took a starring role in the popular television series "Lost,” playing haunted and hardened ex-cop Ana Lucia. Rodriguez returned to the series to wrap up her storyline with an appearance on one of the final episodes.
