- August 01, 2012
Erika Medina was born in Hawaiian Gardens, California on January 1, 1985. Her life long dream was to become a model and actress. Since the age of 4, she would snag her mother’s magazines to look at the models in them and would also imitate the characters she would see on TV. Her modeling career started in 2006 when a friend dared Erika to make her dreams come true by sending out some photos of herself to magazines. Half-jokingly, Erika took the dare, submitting a handful of snapshots taken in her home to FHM magazine, one of the leading men´s magazines. Three months later, Erika made her modeling debut in FHM’s July 2006 issue.
A true overnight success, Erika knew an amazing opportunity had presented itself. She quit her day job in the mortgage business and found herself a manager. Since then, modeling and acting have been Erika’s full time pursuits, and her dedication has been matched only by her rapidly expanding list of accomplishments. This includes magazine spreads with FHM, Maxim Espanol and many others. Her acting resume includes several appearances on television productions such as, Hannah Montana on Disney Channel, How I Met Your Mother on CBS, iCarly on Nickelodeon, 90210 on The CW and music videos with Pitbull, Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West along with many other recording artists. Her smoldering good looks also landed her a spokes modeling contract with Monster Energy Drink.
When she isn’t performing or posing for the camera, Erika loves spending time with her family in Anaheim. She also enjoys regular acting classes, going out to movies, cosmic bowling and dancing the night away with her friends. With only a few years of experience under her 24” belt, Erika has become one of the most sought after new actress/models in the industry. She is consistently praised for her stunning, exotic-yet-commercial appearance, and also for her down-to-earth personality and charming charisma.
