Garcia's first role for the public was playing the lead role in "Maria Antonia," by Eugenio Hernandez Espinosa. She was the youngest actor in Havana's theater history to perform the role of a 40 year old character while she was only 17 years old. Her next leading role, "Yerma" by Ferderico Garcia Lorca, was another huge hit for similar reasons. From ages 17–19, Garcia continued her intensive study in the theater, working 7 days a week in productions.
Garcia learned English, studying with teachers and dialect coaches, such as Robert Easton, Joel Goldes and John Sperry, and began booking commercials. Feeling cut off from her childhood art forms, she began ballet studies at the Debby Allen Dance Academy, while pursuing acting studies with renowned coach, Ivana Chubbuck. She steadily moved up to Ivana's Master class, and booked her first U.S. feature film role playing opposite Marisa Tomei in "Danika."
During the 2007 writer's strike, Garcia made it through multiple rounds of auditions for the Bond girl, Camille Montes, in MGM and Eon Productions' "Quantum of Solace." After being selected to screen test with Daniel Craig, the production company unfortunately couldn't proceed with hiring her, due to a clause in her Fox contract.
Garcia was next cast as Coqui in the Fina Torres' helmed drama, "Liz en Septiembre," which shot on location in the Caribbean Islands of Venezuela. It's based on the multi-award winning Broadway play, "Last Summer at the Blue Fish Cove," by playwright Jane Chambers. Torres wrote the role of Coqui specifically for Garcia, after being impressed by her fearless and risk-taking performances. While shooting "Liz en Septiembre," Garcia experienced numerous transitions in her personal life and found solace and catharsis in turning to expressing herself on the page. She began outlining a new passion project on her own, a feature film script with leading role for her. For Garcia, this project marks an evolution and expansion of her ongoing artistic growth.
She then accepted the lead role of Monica in the U.S.-Brazilian coproduction "Man Camp," where she expanded her acting skills into comedy. She next appeared in the long-running CW Network series, "Supernatural," and AMC's Fear The Walking Dead.
Garcia transitioned back to her theatre roots with the lead role of Electra, in the tragedy "Oresteia," produced by the critically acclaimed composer and director, Lucas Thanos. Garcia also secured the role of Shereen, the girlfriend and primary muse of Jimmy, in the feature film "Boost," with Danny Trejo, which is planning a festival release.
