Biography

Lafayette, LA, native Danneel Harris first caught the attention of the public eye as a model for Juicy Jeans before displaying her talents as an actress with roles in One Life to Live, What I Like About You, Joey, and Jag. While the skilled gymnast, pianist, and vocalist was best known for her television roles early on, she soon segued into features in such films as Parental Guidance Suggested and Ten Inch Hero. In 2005, Harris joined the cast of the small-screen weekly sports drama One Tree Hill as town vixen Rachel Gatina -- a role perfectly suited to her vampish good looks. Subsequently slated to appear in Harold and Kumar 2, Harris was quickly coming into her own as a comic actress when she made Maxim Magazine's "Hot 100" list in 2007. In the coming years, Harris would continue to find success on the small screen, particularly on Friends with Benefits. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
