Ive always loved movies since I was a kid. I loved how they could make me happy, sad, or just show me different parts of the world and people. So when I was about six, I decided that that was what I wanted to do: make movies.— Daniella Alonso
The most delighting Daniella Alonso quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual
The person that inspires me and has inspired me my whole life is my grandmother.
She's strong, head of the household, the person everyone turns to, the one that can solve problems. She's just so warm and caring, loving, but at the same time very strong and can do anything, in my eyes. A great role model and someone that I aspire to be like in life.
I really am happy that I met my agency and my management company, because they see me as a person and not just a Latin woman.
I just try to eat things in moderation and find exercise that I enjoy, because I'm not a gym person. I cannot go to the gym and run on the treadmill and do weights for two hours. It's the most boring thing in the world for me, so I found martial arts.
When I first started, I would go to Weist-Barron, and I studied with Rita Litton and ACTeen. For teenagers, it's a really, really great school. We did a lot of on-camera stuff, so you see yourself and what you do on camera.
'One Tree Hill' really had an impact on my life.
It was the first time I left my house and my family in New York and went to a small town in North Carolina. It was the most incredible experience for me.
I have the biggest sweet tooth ever. I love chocolate, I love sugar, all that stuff. But I've learned to kind of not eat it but just treat myself every now and then with something. Because if you avoid it completely, then I personally go crazy.
There are those special projects that don't ever feel like work but just a blessing to be a part of, and 'Revolution' is one of those projects.
I really want to work in a movie with Quentin Tarantino.
I think he makes fantastic movies. I love people that create a different reality for the actors to live in.
People that do good in the world or that want to do good, that have good intentions and want to help other people, and people that aren't concerned with themselves but more [with] others and helping in service of others - that inspires me.
Ive been taking martial arts for a long time.
I started with tae kwon do, and then I started taking karate and mixed martial arts.
I directed a half hour comedy pilot, 'Upgrade,' and had one of the best times ever! I had such a great time directing; I would love to get to direct another project.
Growing up, I wasnt sure about acting, but I knew I wanted to be part of the movie industry.
I can be a nice person, but if someone is messing with someone I care about, the tougher side comes out a little more.
I guess just accepting failure is the thing.
I don't really look at it as a failure. I look at them as learning lessons and things you grow from but not really a failure, because that's life.
I think failure is just a part of life.
You can't avoid it in anything. I just accept it as a part of life and something that's going to happen, and you use it to grow. You use it, you learn from it, and you grow from it.
As I got older, I would study privately with some coaches.
Then I found Lee Strasberg, which I loved.
