Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in Brentwood?

In this episode of "Kahnversations," we interview Christina Vidal.

Christina Vidal was born and raised in Whitestone, Queens, New York. The youngest child of Puerto Rican parents Josephine and Manuel, Vidal always marched to the beat of her own drum. She began acting by chance when her junior high school teacher gave her a flyer for an open audition in the film LIFE WITH MIKEY.  Eventually, Christina landed the lead role with Michael J. Fox and achieved two milestones: her professional debut and becoming the first Puerto Rican child actress to play a lead in an American film. For high school, Christina attended the Performing Arts School of New York. Vidal was just getting started. She has since appeared in many television series and specials, holding both series lead and series regular roles. Vidal is often known for her performance in the title role of Nickelodeon’s TAINA which ran for two seasons. She later went to star in FREAKY FRIDAY opposite Lindsay Lohan (2003) and SEE NO EVIL (2006). Most recently, Vidal starred in the NBC Pilot CURSE OF THE FUENTES WOMEN and also held roles in CODE BLACK, LIMITLESS, and BLUE BLOODS. She now goes on to join the cast of TRAINING DAY.

A woman of many talents, Christina is also known for her musical inclinations. She has collaborated with such artists as Will Smith, Jade Villalon, and Sabrina Bryan of the Cheetah Girls. She has also contributed songs for the soundtracks of FREAKY FRIDAY, TAINA, and BYOU.

In her spare time, Christina enjoys watching films; particularly those starring Julia Roberts, Ashley Judd, Sally Field, Al Pacino, and Jack Nicholson. Not solely limited to the silver screen, she can also be found binge watching DOWNTOWN ABBEY and FRIENDS. Christina loves salsa dancing, cooking for her family, and interior decorating. Her sisters Lisa and Tanya Vidal are also actors who have appeared on TV and in theatre. Her brother Christian, the only boy, rounds out her tight-knit family of 6.
