Early lifeEdit

Mondellini was born to a British mother, Joan Hammond, and an Italian father, Mario Mondellini. She moved to Mexico City with her family when her father was transferred by his employer. She has two sisters.

From early childhood, she was introduced to the arts of acting and dancing by her mother, a professional choreographer. She began her acting career when she was 11 years old in the musical "Gypsy", and continued her career in Telenovelas (soap operas) with the Mexican network Televisa, Spanish classical theater and movies.

Mondellini decided to move with her family to Houston, Texas in 2006 following the kidnapping of two of her actress friends in Mexico City.

She won the Voice Arts award for Best Spanish Language Narrator in 2017. She has been nominated twice for the Premios TV y Novelas as Best Lead Actress and Best supporting Actress. She is fluent in five languages (Spanish, English, Italian, French and German), is a professional ballerina, a voice over talent, and has bachelor's and master's degrees in arts.

Mondellini is married to an American Petroleum engineer, Al Wilson. The couple have three children: Mario, Robert, and Stephanie.
