Fast & Furious: What Happened To Eva Mendes’ Monica Fuentes?



Many characters in the Fast & Furious franchise have managed to appear in multiple installments of this series, but the character of Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) has proven to be one noticeable exception.

First appearing in 2 Fast 2 Furious, Fuentes was a U.S. customs agent who partnered up with Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) to take down a drug lord.

Over the course of their mission, the trio managed to defeat the film’s antagonist while O’Conner and Fuentes ended up developing a romance

While these characters would remain absent for the next entry in the Fast Saga, Tokyo Drift, O’Conner would return to the role of a protagonist in 2009’s Fast & Furious while Pearce and fellow 2 Fast 2 Furious character Tej Parker (Ludacris) would return to the franchise with Fast Five.

Since then, Pearce and Parker have become mainstays of the Fast & Furious movies while O’Conner’s legacy has lived on well after the tragic passing of Paul Walker.
