Being Alexa Vega’s (Spy Kids) younger sister, we’re guessing Makenzie Vega may feel like she has some big shoes to fill, but she's not letting that get in her way!

The 17-year-old part-colombiana actress stars in CBS’ legal drama The Good Wife, which centers on Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), a junior litigator whose husband Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) lands in jail after a public sex and corruption scandal.

In the show, Vega plays Grace, Alicia and Peter’s teenage daughter. An outsider easily swayed by peer pressure, Grace has fallen prey to everything from religious fanaticism to her eccentric physics tutor whose dance videos alarm Grace’s parents.

Vega’s career began at the tender age of 5, when she played the youngest child of Teddi Cochran (Geena Davis) in the short-lived sitcom The Geena Davis Show. Since then, Vega has appeared in a slew of feature films, such as Sin City, X-Men: The Last Stand, and the gory Saw. Besides her current role in The Good Wife, Vega has also guest-starred in Justice, ER, and Ghost Whisperer.

Check out a funny—and very odd—scene from The Good Wife below, starring Vega and her character’s tutor:
