She was born on July 26, 1988 in Los Angeles, California to parents Renan Almendarez Coello and Virginia Almendárez. She is known to have a Honduran and Mexican ancestry. She started acting when she was in her early high school days, appearing in print ads and commercials in television. She started to draw attention in the year 2004 when she guested in the American Family: Journey of Dreams. A year after, she was cast in the action drama TV series Over There for three episodes. In 2006, she had her first taste in film acting as she was cast as Leti in Bring It On: All or Nothing. She soon had her big break when she portrayed the main role Adrian Lee in The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Just recently, she was seen in Beyond Paradise, portraying the role Shahrzad.
When Francia was asked by the Seventeen about her fitness secrets, she shared some of her tips. “Find a type of exercise that you love — whether it’s dance, soccer, softball, anything – just as long as it keeps you active. If you love it, you’ll dedicate yourself to it and stay involved,” Francia said.
When it comes to diet, she said it’s not really important to choose healthier foods. What’s more important is to keep your body working by regularly exercising. She even said that she does not hesitate to eat what she likes, especially her guilty-pleasure foods like pizza, Doritos, and burgers.
