‘LL: Your character also seems to have a glamorous side.
Oh yeah, I’m really learning to appreciate that. When I was on Revolution, there were no makeup guys on site. Now I play someone who likes to take good care of herself and play up her sexy side from time to time.
‘LL: She is definitely a strong and sexy Latina. What do you find sexy about our culture?
I think our culture can be very sexy. But I love it for so many other reasons. I love the camaraderie, the fact that we are so family-oriented – just that whole environment and everyone having fun together.
‘LL: Speaking of family, will be spending time with yours during the coming summer break?
Actually no, I’m jumping right into another project. This summer I’ll be filming Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 in Las Vegas. It’s going to be a blast. Then when that’s done, I’ll be going home to New York to enjoy some quality time with family and friends.
It sounds like we’ll be seeing a lot more form Daniella in the months to come.
Make sure to catch Daniella Alonso on the premiere of her new series, The Night Shift, May 27th on NBC!
