According to Terra, she enrolled in a famous Mexican acting school when she was about 14, and by the time she was 16, she had landed herself a leading role on a telenovela.

Eiza wanted to move on to different types of roles, and according to People, she decided to move to Los Angeles in order to expand her options and pursue English-speaking parts.

This was obviously a major career transition for her, but she handled it with grace, and after a couple years in LA, she landed a part on the series, From Dusk till Dawn. Later, she moved on to acting in movies. In 2017, she appeared in the film, Baby Driver, as “Darling,” which was her first part in a major American film. What else is in her future?

19 Alessandra Mastronardi

Alessandra Mastronardi has been acting for years, but you may not have heard of her because most of her previous roles were in Italian productions. According to Vulture, she landed her first role when she was only eleven years old in an Italian miniseries. However, she did not become well known in the Italian entertainment industry until her early twenties, when she became a regular cast member of the Italian TV series, Los Serrano, I Cesaroni. In 2007, she expanded into theater work when she made her stage debut in the comedy production, The Prozac Family.

Alessandra’s talent became recognized in America when she appeared as the character Milly in the 2012 film, To Rome With Love.

She played Francesca, the love interest of the main character, Dev. According to Vogue, her audition was a last-minute decision, and she barely knew anything about the show before trying out for the part! If there is a season three in the future, we definitely hope that she makes another appearance.

Finally, she landed a role that she thought would be her first big break—she was chosen to play Becca Huffstatter in the ABC series, Huge. However, her work visa did not come in on time, so she was not legally permitted to work in Hollywood.

But all hope was not lost—Danielle went on to appear in her first feature film, The East, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival.
