How Old is Nona Sobo?

Nona Sobo was born Mariona Soley Bosch on 2 March 2000 and is 23 years old. It is made known that the actress chose the moniker Nona Sobo, in professional settings rather than her birth name because she had difficulty pronouncing her first name, Mariona, when she was a toddler. At the time, she would say “Nona” when she wanted to pronounce her name, and that was how it stuck.

She was birthed in Thailand, but she moved to Spain when she was a little girl in 2002 with her adopted mother, and it was here that she was brought up from the age of 2. She settled at Caldes de Montbui, Barcelona. The talented actress has not made any revelation about her birth parents. However, they are believed to be from Thailand and may currently be living in an Asian country. There is also nothing about her siblings in the public domain.

Although from an early age, her interest was in becoming an actress and having a career as an entertainer, she also got into athletics when she was in school. She was involved in various sporting activities, including swimming, for which she won various medals. Apart from that, there is nothing more that is known about her education, except that she attended schools in Barcelona.

What is Nona Sobo’s Ethnicity?

By merely looking at the actress, one could guess by her physical features that she is of Asian roots. She is a woman who holds more than one nationality as by birth, she is from Thailand, but she has been in Spain for more than two decades. That said, more than any guesses, she is actually of Asian ethnicity, but the language she speaks is Spanish since it was the language she has always known since a tender age. She also seems to speak Thai, even though as a second language.

The circumstances of her birth are not clear, but it has been made known that it was in a Theravada Buddhist home that she was born. She has not made any revelations about her adoption process, and as a result, it is not known if, apart from Asian roots, she is also of mixed ethnicity from either of her parents.

In spite of this, she still seems to be close to some of her family members as she once made it known in an interview that she has a tattoo of her grandmother, and she also added that she visits the country from time to time and loves it there. During the interview, she gave a peek into her family life, revealing that she had already lost all her grandparents, but she believed they were proud of her in heaven.

Nona Sobo Enjoys the Unwavering Support of Her Family

Although most members of her family are in Thailand, as stated, that has not stopped them from offering their support to her. This is thanks to the closeness they maintain even though she has almost always been in Europe, except for periodic visits.

The greater support she has enjoyed is from her mother, Mei Sobo whom she has always adored on her social media pages. The actress has since made it known that she enjoys more support than normal from her mother. This is what has helped her to start her career very early in her life and continue to excel.

Unsurprisingly, the two women enjoy a very good relationship, and they have influenced each other in many ways, including their strong love for dogs. There is nothing to indicate if Nona’s mother has ever been married or if she has any other kids apart from the talented actress and model.

She Became Famous as a Spanish Actress

As indicated, Nona Sobo has always wanted to be an actress from an early age. This came true for her when she was first discovered at the age of 8. At the time, she got the chance to appear in some commercials. Her career soon got a boost when she got into modeling. Nona also got to appear in some music videos.

Her career as an actress began in full when she was rediscovered when she was handling a commercial gig. That paved the way for her to appear in Cinemascomics: Entrevistas (2014). Although it was a changing point for the young woman of only 14 at the time, her real break came in 2021 when she got the role of Irene in the Netflix Series Wrong Side of the Tracks.

The series has been very dear to her because it gives her a role that almost mirrors her reality. This is because the character she portrays, Irene, is also of Asian roots from Thailand, and she was also adopted. This series also made her an international star as it gained a following from all over the world, including the United States.

The next role of the Spanish actress came in 2023 when she got a minor role in the TV series Welcome To Eden (Bienvenidos a Edén). She was in the eighth episode of the series.

Apart from that, she is also a social media influencer who enjoys a good following on various social media platforms, including Tiktok and Instagram.

Nona Sobo is Dating a Spaniard

The Thai-born and Spain-raised actress is in a loving relationship with her boyfriend, Carlos Uraga, a Spaniard. There are no details available to the public on how and when they began dating.

Nona and Carlos are from different industries; while she is established as a model and actress, her lover is an entrepreneur and an engineer. He is the founder and CEO of Nantek. They are still very supportive of each other even as their industries and career paths are different.
