Julia Montes Rising Star

The real name of Julia Montes is Mara Montes Schnittka and she was born on March 19, 1995. At 16, her height is already 5'5 and this can be attributed to the fact that she is half-German. Her father is a German national whom she had never met since she was born and had not made any attempt to communicate with her.
