    According to her actress sister’s Wikipedia. Their father is named Baruch Vega. ‘Baruch’ is one of the must-be-Jewish first names along with Mordechai, Pessach, Shlomo, and Yehuda.

    You might want to check up on that.
    Also, maybe add her sister to EthniCelebs as well, after you find out more details.

    Cheers
