FIVE QUESTIONS WITH DANA:
1. What was your path to becoming an actor?

Not. On. My. Phone. Ideally, traveling to incredible locations to film badass films about badass lead females who are allowed to be gorgeous AND funny ... and I’d love to be the one in front of the camera. ;)

Grease, White Christmas, Princess Diaries, Oceans 11 and Red Sparrow
