Danay Garcia Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education
Born Danay Aguilar Garcia on the 5th July 1984, in Havana, Cuba, she is the daughter of a Chinese-Italian father and Spanish-Cuban mother. Unfortunately, she hasn’t shared their names and professions, nor revealed whether she is a single child or has siblings. From an early age, Danay was intrigued by the performing arts, especially dancing, and she started attending dancing lessons when she was 10 years old. Since then, she learned ballet, salsa, African dance, belly dancing, Flamenco and Meringue, and others.
The family immigrated from Cuba to the US in 2003, when she started learning English under teachers and dialect coaches, such as Robert Easton, Joel Goldes and John Sperry.
Danay’s career started when she was only 17 years old, in an Havana theatre production of the play “Maria Antonia”, directed by Eugenio Hernandez Espinosa. Once she settled in the US, she her launched modeling career, beginning in commercials, while she also made a few notable magazine appearances, such as in Italian Vogue, among others.
Her acting debut in an English language film happened in 2006, with the role of Myra in the horror film “Danika”. She continued with a minor role in the TV series “CSI: Miami” in 2007, and the same year secured the part of Sofia Lugo in the TV action crime-drama series “Prison Break”, appearing in 15 episodes over two years of the Golden Globe Award-nominated series.
Rise to Prominence
With the start of the 2010s, Danay’s name started becoming popular, and more roles were offered to her. As a result, in 2010 she featured in the comedy-drama film “Peep World”, starring Michael C. Hall, and Sarah Silverman, while in 2011 she was cast in the sci-fi horror-drama series “Rehab”, and in 2014 she had a supporting role in the romantic drama film “Liz in September”.
However, it was in 2016 that her hard work paid off, when she was chosen for the part of Luciana Galvez in the TV horror drama series “Fear the Walking Dead” (2016-2019). So far, Danay has appeared in more than 50 episodes of the highly-poplar series, which has contributed to both her popularity and net worth as well. In addition to her latter long-running role, Danay also starred in the action-drama film “Sniper: Ultimate Kill” (2017), next to Chad Michael Collins and Billy Zane, and in the crime-drama film “Avenge the Crows”, also in 2017.
