Actress from the Fox TV series, Breaking In, Odette Annable (née Yustman) is fluent in Spanish. With a Cuban mother and Italian-French father who grew up in Nicaragua, Spanish was her first language she knew before learning English in grade school.
She made her acting debut playing a young, Spanish-speaking student named Rosa in Kindergarten Cop, and later moved on to various television shows and movies such as South Beach and October Road. She is most known for her breakthrough role in Cloverfield and the horror flick, The Unborn.
Odette married Brothers & Sisters actor Dave Annable in 2010. In their wedding vows, she made him promise to learn Spanish and pass the language to her kids one day.
From Latina.com, “I made Dave promise me that he’d learn Spanish. He’s got the Rosetta Stone and I’m trying to teach him. He knows what a tenedor is, un cuchillo, una botella de agua, but he’s got a lot of work to do.”
More Shakira showcasing her love for languages.
It has been known that Shakira is interested in world history and frequently studies the history and languages of the countries she visits.
In the summer of 2007 after her Oral Fixation tour, she attended a class in Los Angeles at UCLA, on the History of Western Civilization. She used her middle and last names, Isabel Mebarak, and told the professor she was visiting from Colombia so as to avoid being recognized as a celebrity.
