Bio

Daniella Alonso is an American actress known for her recurring role as Anna Taggaro on the television drama series One Tree Hill (2004-2005) and for her lead roles in the feature films The Hills Have Eyes 2 and Wrong Turn 2: Dead End.

She also stars as Nora, a rebel fighter battling against the militia, in the post-apocalyptic science fiction drama series Revolution; and as Dr. Landry De La Cruz, a fun-loving Texan who is the lone psychiatrist on the night shift, in the medical drama television series The Night Shift.

She has guest starred in recurring roles on Rizzoli & Isles and Covert Affairs and also starred as Brenda Serrano in the 2010 ABC drama series My Generation, created and written by Noah Hawley (Bones).

When Alonso was a child, she always knew she wanted to be an actress simply because she wanted to make people feel the way a good movie made her feel: happy, sad, excited. Unfortunately, since no one in her family was in the arts, she had to wait until she was eighteen to pursue her dream.

Discovered by the Ford Modeling Agency, she began booking jobs for teen magazines like Seventeen, YM and Teen, which led to her booking commercials for Clairol, Cover Girl, Clean and Clear, Kmart, Target, Footlocker, Volkswagen and more.

An American actress of Puerto Rican and Peruvian origins, Alonso also starred as Carlotta on NBC's critically acclaimed television series Friday Night Lights, but she is best known for her role as Anna Taggaro on the popular CW series One Tree Hill.

Before that, she portrayed Pilar Domingo in the daytime drama As the World Turns. On the silver screen Alonso, who made her debut in 1997's Academy Boyz, has had roles in Martin Lawrence's Black Knight, the 2003 Official Sundance Dramatic Selection Rhythm of the Saints, The Last Romantic, All You've Got, Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror, and The Hills Have Eyes II, written by Wes Craven.

She can also be seen in The Collector.

An avid animal lover who supports PETA, Alonso also practices karate, holding a fourth level green belt. She was named one of Maxim's Hot 100 in 2006.
