Veronica Diaz-Carranza

Veronica Diaz-Carranza / Lupe

Veronica Diaz-Carranza was born in North Philadelphia and grew up in South Jersey with two brothers and three sisters until she moved to South Florida.

Born to a family of diverse cultural backgrounds blessed Veronica with a worldly perspective on morals, values and passions. Her Nicaraguan mother and Puerto Rican father are her biggest fans and unbreakable support system. Even though they could not help her pursue her dreams at a younger age due to a lack of time and continued financial difficulty, they always provided their unconditional love, acceptance, guidance and support. For this, they encouraged her to learn about financial independence, responsibility and sacrifice; the tools that would play a critical role in complementing the pursuit of her dreams.

With a drive for cinematography and human behavior, Veronica grew up with a passion for telling stories. This led her to pursue an education in anatomy and physiology. Soon after, she followed her dream and pursued acting and directing in cinema and headed west to Los Angeles.

Her years of hard work and perseverance paid off; she was cast in Edward James Olmos’ “Walkout” (2006), where she also learned a great deal about the technical side of acting. Then, the character of Felipa in the film “Mamitas” (2011) captured her eye and knew it had to be hers. She was blessed to portray such a strong character. Her newest project has her co-starring alongside Tyler Posey in the comedy “Taco Shop” (2012).
