If you’ve had the chance to check out Netflix’s new series The Get Down, you are no doubt enthralled by the show’s winning mix of storytelling and nostalgia. Fans have been raving online about the show, which is set in the late 70s South Bronx and offers a mythologized telling of hip-hop’s early days and New York City culture in the kinetic age of disco, punk and rap.
You also most likely noticed the talented and stunning Herizen Guardiola, who stars on The Get Down as ambitious aspiring disco star Mylene Cruz. Guardiola is a charismatic 19-year old actress based in L.A. who brings an undeniable charisma to the small screen as the driven Mylene. Born in Miami (she identifies as Cuban and Jamaican), Guardiola has been getting lots of love since The Get Down debuted earlier this month. And she has an awesome IG page and seems to know she’s on the verge of superstardom.
