Celina is a secondary character. She is just a sidekick to one of the main characters. She is one of Mia Colucci's best friends. Celina is portrayed by Estefania Villarreal.
Estefania is said to have been cast in the original Rebelde because she fit the body type that the makers were looking for. She played a character who was overweight. Her character as Celina was someone we could see was hyper-conscious about her weight as she was always mistreated and bullied by her peers for being heavier than others.
Her high school days were definitely not fun. They were mostly filled with days of constantly struggling with her body image issues and fighting her insecurities.
Fast forward to 2022, in Netflix's Rebelde, Celina is back as the principal of Elite Way School. She now runs the same school that she was bullied in. She chose to be the new director at EWS in spite of all her distasteful and miserable memories of her being bullied because of her body type.
