Vega returned to series television as Alfred Molina's daughter in CBS' short lived sitcom "Ladies Man," before taking center stage in Spy Kids (2001) and it's two sequels. Soon after that was, Sleepover (2004), and she continued to act in movies such as State's Evidence (2006), Odd Girl Out (2005), Walkout (2006), Marrying God (2006) and The Beautiful Ordinary (2007).
