Makenzie Jade Vega (born February 10, 1994) is an American actress. She is the younger sister of actress Alexa PenaVega.

Life and career[edit]

Vega was born in Los Angeles, California. Her father is Colombian and her mother, Gina Rue, is an American former model.[1][2][3]

At the age of five, Vega appeared regularly as the smallest child of Teddie Cochran (Geena Davis) in The Geena Davis Show. In 2000, she was cast as Annie, the Campbells’ precocious daughter[4] in The Family Man. The following year, Vega was seen again playing Chloe in Made which starred Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau and Famke Janssen. In 2004, she played Diana Gordon, daughter of Dr. Lawrence Gordon (Cary Elwes) and Alison Gordon (Monica Potter) in the horror film Saw.[5] Her next movie was Sin City, in which she played young Nancy Callahan, alongside Bruce Willis. Vega then appeared in Just My Luck as Katy, starring Lindsay Lohan and McFly, and also in the summer blockbuster X-Men: The Last Stand as the Prison Truck Little Girl, where she was one of the forms that the shapeshifter Mystique took, as an unsuccessful ploy to fool the guards into letting her go. Currently, she plays Grace, the daughter of Alicia Florrick, portrayed by Julianna Margulies, in the CBS drama The Good Wife.
