    The girl from the Old El Paso ad reveals the price of childhood fame

    ‘I never had a proper friend’: The girl from the Old El Paso commercial is now 20-years-old and says that fame ruined her high school years

    Mia Agraviador shot to fame as a six-year-old as the little girl in an iconic Old El Paso taco commercial.

    But today, almost fifteen years since shooting the ad, the now 20-year-old barista says that childhood fame made her high school years difficult.

    Mia says that all the other kids at her school knew who she was and would constantly ask her to say her famous line from the commercial, ‘Porque no los dos?’

    Tough: Mia Agraviador was six-years-old when she appeared in the Old El Paso taco commercial, but she says childhood fame caused her to struggle later in life

    Appearing on SBS Insight this week, the former child star said: ‘I would just roll with it but deep down I would feel annoyed and like, I wish people knew the person that I am.’

    She added: ‘I never really had a proper, long-term friend.’

    Mia is all grown up now and works as a barista and an artist in Sydney.

    Mia now owns her famous past, with her Instagram bio stating proudly: ‘Yes, I’m the “Porque No Los Dos?” taco girl.’

    The former child star has a passion for dance these days and regularly uploads videos of herself performing hip hop and urban routines.

    She’s also quite the fashionista, and likes to wear edgy outfits and stylish swimwear in photos shared to social media.

    Mia’s one-liner in the Old El Paso commercial is now a popular meme, and has become a common saying people use when they can’t decide between two things.

    ‘Porque no los dos?’ is Spanish for ‘why not both?’ and the advert was about a taco kit that included both soft and hard shell tacos.

    In recent years, she has had minor roles in other commercials in which she revisits her signature catchphrase.

    In March, she made an appearance in an advert for Australian furniture brand Koala.

    Earlier this year, Pedestrian TV did a YouTube episode with Mia for their ’15 Minutes’ series. 

    She revealed that fame had come at a price, and she often felt uncomfortable with the attention she received from the commercial.

    As a result, she attended three separate high schools.

    These days, Mia is a successful artist and one of her pieces from 2015 was a finalist for the Young Archibald Prize.
