This is just one out of the many awards she carted away for that work.
For a performer as young as Ivana is with such an impressive start to her acting career, the sky might not even be her limit.

As a young child, Baquero attended American School of Barcelona which is situated in Esplugues de Llobregat, Catalonia, Spain. At this school, she learned how to speak English, Spanish and Catalan fluently before graduating in the year 2012.

It is on record that many young girls numbering about 1000 auditioned for this role but out of the many, only Ivana Baquero was chosen and she went on to perform excellently to rave and critical acclaim. The role of Ofelia/Princess Moanna was originally intended for an 8-year-old but being that Ivana was 11 at the time, the film scripts were edited to enable her to blend into the character perfectly.
