Andrea Londo (born November 7, 1992) is an American actress. She is known for portraying Maria Salazar in Narcos (2015) Season 3. Londo is a border child. She was born in San Diego, CA but lived in Tijuana, Mexico until she moved to Los Angeles, CA to pursue an acting career . For eighteen years she crossed the Mexican-American border everyday to go to school. She spent the first half of the day at school in San Diego and the second half at home in Tijuana. She lied to her parents when she moved to Los Angeles and told them she was attending USC so they’d let her take their car. She found a room on Craigslist for $440 a month and got a job at Zara at the Grove, where she worked for a year and a half. After a year of living in LA she got accepted to Barnard in NYC, but decided to stay in Los Angeles at Santa Monica College to continue pursuing an acting career. Londo got fired from her last retail job. The manager told her he wished her luck in her acting career because she wasn’t a very good sales person. Londo began her career doing short films. In 2015 she appeared in Catfish: The TV Show, her first TV credit. It was in 2016 that she appeared in her first TV guest star appearance on Faking it, and then on Criminal Minds Beyond Borders. In the fall of 2016, Londo planned on attending UCLA. However, the day of her orientation was also the day of her Narcos audition. She missed orientation to audition for the role and didn’t end up going to UCLA because she moved to Colombia to start shooting Narcos season 3 instead. She also worked Drew Pollins’ film adaptation of Pat Moffatt’s novel “Ice Cream in the Cupboard: A True Story of Early Onset Alzheimer’s”, where she plays Young Carmen. In 2017, it was announced that Londo would be playing Carnalita in Kurt Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy spin-off Mayans MC. The role was later recast and went to Carla Baratta, as Andrea was still filming Narcos and her schedules ended up conflicting. Of the experience Londo said: “I had to get recast 3 days before I was scheduled to shoot the pilot. It’s been one of the hardest lessons of my acting career thus far, but only motivated me that much more.” In 2018, Londo played Cynthia in Sony’s SuperFly (2018), produced by Joel Silver and directed by Director X. On how she got the part Londo said: “Two days after Christmas my manager called me and told me Joel Silver wanted to meet me. I asked for a copy of the current Superfly script to read beforehand and went in thinking Joel would be super tough and hard to impress. I sat down and he said: ‘Listen Andrea, I really want you to do this movie.’ And I was in Atlanta a week later.” Londo was number 87 on FHM’s 2017 list of 100 sexiest women in the world.
