Alexandra Daddario, the 27-year-old New York-bred actress who started out on “All My Children” as a teenager, got on our radar with recent roles on “White Collar” (Neal’s mysterious girlfriend Kate) and “Parenthood” (Adam’s sexy receptionist). She went on to star in the “Percy Jackson” series and the most recent “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”
But now, Daddario is getting everyone’s attention for her role as seductive court reporter Lisa Tragnetti on HBO’s “True Detective.” She’s become a viral vixen for her hot sex scene (complete with handcuffs) with Woody Harrelson in episode two. BroBible rates it as “the best topless scene ever.”
Sports Illustrated gave Daddario more exposure, making her a coveted LLOD (Lovely Lady of the Day) on Friday.
MTV interviewed Daddario about her role on “True Detective:”
I think one thing about this role for me was that it was a huge challenge for me, and I saw it as a good challenge. I saw it as an interesting challenge. I really wanted to be part of the show, and I understood why the nudity and all of that was required of the character…. The character is really different from anything that I’ve done before. The nudity was just part of that.
If you watch Daddario, you may think that “Fifty Shades of Grey” should have cast her.
