On the other hand, Ester's character, Carla, is 17 years old high school student. Nevertheless, Exposito is just so good as Carla that the fact that she is a few years older than her character can be easily overlooked.

6. Endless Glam Shots on Instagram

In addition to her innate talent to interpret, Exposito is quite photogenic; her Instagram feeds are filled with beautifully captured pictures.

Following the completion of high school, the 20 years old actress took up courses in acting schools throughout Madrid. Exposito studied theatre and participated in community acting groups to make herself familiarized with the performing arts.

4. Can Ester Speak English?

Ester has been learning English in hopes of working in movies outside of her native language. In an interview with Oprah magazine, the 20 years old actress discussed her plans to become involved in a global scene following the release of Alguien tiene que morir. 

"I really want to go back to movies. I would also love to make a comedy because I have not explored that in a TV show or movie. And I also would like to go back to theater. But one thing at a time!" 

3. Debuted With Spanish Docudrama in 2016

Exposito made her way into the realms of the entertainment industry as a professional actress with an episodic role in television series Centro Médico. The same year, she also appeared in Rodrigo Sorogoyen's thriller film Que Dios nos perdone.

Shortly, the 20 years old actress portrayed Hija de Fernando in television series Vis A Vis along with some well-known actors as Money Heist fame Alba Flores

2. Is She Dating Someone?

A deep-dive into Ester's Instagram trying to comb through her relationship status, we found no potential significant other— perhaps a piece of good news for everyone crushing on this gorgeous up-and-coming actress. 

It seems like Exposito is not romantically linked with anyone at the moment. According to the Spanish magazine Diez Minutos, Ester had been in a relationship with her fellow co-star Álvaro Rico

Rico and Exposito dated for a year and a half before calling it quit in early autumn of 2019, as per Spanish newspaper, Mundo Deportivo.

There were also rumors linking Exposito to 32 years old French professional footballer, Karim Benzema, an obvious flip-side that comes along with fame. Nevertheless, the 20 years old actress implicitly confirmed the news to be inaccurate with an Instagram story. 

1. She Will Always Appreciate What Carla Taught Her

Before joining Elle, Exposito had already been featured in a handful of projects, but the unprecedented success she received from the Netflix teen drama made her a global star. With Carlo, she got 'to develop a character and dig deeper over time,' and she regards it as a different experience. 

Her character, Carla Rosón Caleruega, is the daughter of the Marquess of Caleruega and a heir of the Caleruega Marchioness vineyard and wine cellar. Carlo is quite manipulative, leaving no stones unturned when it comes to achieving what she wants. 

A student at Las Encinas in Elite, she had a long-term relationship with Polo and, in later episodes, falls in love with Samuel. Nevertheless, despite being cold-hearted at the beginning of the show, Carla displays a somewhat softer side, caring about the one she loves and taking any measures to cover up their faults. 

Along with Ester, the show also features María Pedraza, Itzan Escamilla, Miguel Bernardeau, Danna Paola, Miguel Herrán, Jaime Lorente, Álvaro Rico, and many more.
