Actor Biography

Francia Raisa has come a long way from her first role as young cheerleader Leti in the film "Bring It On: All or Nothing." Continuing the development of her acting prowess in projects such as "The Mindy Project"; "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," where she played series regular Adrian Lee; and, more recently, in Netflix's "Dear White People," she is now primed to tackle Freeform's "grown-ish" with the role of Analisa Torres, a first-generation Cuban-American raised in Miami with staunch Republican views and roommate to Zoey Johnson, played by "black-ish"'s Yara Shahidi.

In between roles that have won her awards such as a Gracie Award and La Femme Film Festival Rising Star, and nominations for Teen Choice, IMAGEN and an ALMA, Raisa is dedicated to assisting organizations dear to her heart like Unlikely Heroes, whose mission is to provide safe homes and restoration to victims of sex trafficking worldwide.

Born and raised in Southern California, bi-lingual Raisa is of Honduran and Mexican decent.
