Alicia Marie Sixtos was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and is one of four sisters. Sixtos is of Mexican and Portuguese descent and didn’t initially plan on pursuing acting. She started her career at the age of ten as a print model for ad agencies and moved to Los Angeles in 2005. The first film she worked on, Quinceañera, a Sundance hit, launched her passion for acting. Since then, she has appeared in “The Avengers,” as well as the award winning indie, The Custom Mary and the upcoming “HIGH School.” In television, Sixtos has appeared on Californication, King of the Hill, General Hospital, CSI-Las Vegas, and most recently on FOX’s hit sitcom New Girl.
