Biography

Born and raised in Queens, Christina Vidal first came to the attention of film audiences with her debut as the hustler turned child star in James Lapine's "Life With Mikey" (1993). Co-starring opposite Nathan Lane and Michael J Fox, the young Latina actress more than held her own without becoming cloying or overly-precocious. She had a small role in Todd Solondz's acclaimed "Welcome to the Dollhouse" (1995). Vidal began her TV career as a guest performer on such shows as "The Cosby Mysteries" and "The Commish" before she landed her first regular gig on a series when she joined the cast of "Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher" (The WB) during the 1997-98 season. She had a very visible presence as the love interest in the suprisingly likeable Disney Channel movie "Brink!" (1998), a modernized version of "Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates," which she followed with a leading role in the Nikelodeon series "Taina" (2000) playing Taina Morales, a Puerto Rican teenage girl navigating a three-generation Latino household in Queens. That led to a visible role in Disney's 2003 remake of the body-swapping comedy "Freaky Friday," playing Lindsay Lohan's best friend Maddie (a role vacated by Kelly Osbourne), who heads up a young band. Vidal also has a musical career, and sang back up and appeared in music videos starring Will Smith. She was signed by MCA records in 2002.
