The unfinished film saga of Percy Jackson launched her to fame as a youthful star, but a couple of appearances in the first season of True Detective were enough to get rid of that label. Today, already thirty-one years old, Alexandra Daddario acts alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the new version of Baywatch. Therefore, we decided to look closely at this actress who is undoubtedly experiencing a career advancement.
You probably know Daddario from the saga of ‘Percy Jackson’, her incursions into the horror genre or her brief (but memorable) role in the first season of ‘True Detective’, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe. However, she affirms that comedy is her natural habitat. And her character in ‘The Baywatch’, Summer Quinn, has allowed her to give life. These are the ten facts about Alexandra Daddario that you probably didn’t knew.
- About her parents
His father has been part of the anti-terrorist unit of the New York Police Department and his mother is a lawyer. Apparently this seriousness in their careers had to do with looking to develop the creative side of their daughter, whom they soon put into acting classes.
- She is a great friend of The Rock
Dwayne Johnson is 45 years old. She 31, but looks much less. That’s why it was not so strange to see them playing father and daughter in San Andreas , the first film they worked on together. It is said that both had such good chemistry and became such great friends that it was then the actor who asked her to join the project of the Baywatch film remake. And the play, apparently, has gone quite well. It is important to have friends like that.
- She is dating Zac Efron
They both met for the filming of Baywatch and fell in love. Earlier is was rumored, but after seeing their photos on Instagram it was clear that Zac Efron is Alexandra Daddario boyfriend in 2017. In an interview she praised Zac’s body and said she had never touched such a toned muscular body. Well, they look too cute together as a couple.
- Has a great sense of humor
A single tweet may suffice as an example. There is a scene known in True Detective in which Alexandra is completely naked on the back. When the fanaticism of the then president Barack Obama was made public, she soon published a simple message on her Twitter account: “The president has seen my breasts”.
- It has gone beyond cinema and television
Although his participation in films and television series is well known (he has even appeared in The Sopranos), there is one side of him that very few have heard. Alexandra has also starred in the Radioactive video clip, the subject of Imagine Dragons.
- Left High School for acting
She got a small role in “All My Children” and this was a very short rile, but the directors and producers liked her character and acting and they decided to keep her in. She left her studies and started focusing on her acting career.
- It was nominated for a rather peculiar prize
It is true that until now he has managed his career especially in commercial films and that there has been no opportunity to see it in a “serious” film. Precisely for that reason the prize to which it was nominated in 2013 is neither the Oscar nor the Golden Globes. For his work in Texas Chainsaw 3D aspired to the particular prize of Best Dead Performance of Fear that the chain offers since 2005.
- She likes Avengers
She is great fan of Marvel’s Avengers series. In an interview she once said:
“‘The Avengers’ one of my favorite films of the last ten years. And the reason why it works so well is the amount of humor that Marvel knows how to introduce in all his films.
Maybe soon we can see her as a part of this movie collection.
- She is a die hard fan of Taylor Swift
She once admitted that Taylor Swift is her favorite pop singer and that she is a great fan of her. Apart from her, she also likes John Mayer, Phoenix and Lady Gaga as her favorite singers.
- She loves dogs
She is a dog lover and has one named Levon.
Apart from that she is very hardworking. Check out her workout routine for Baywatch she used to shape her body. She did a lot of hard work for her role in Baywatch.
