Adorable rising star Daniella Monet made her acting debut on "Pacific Blue" at the age of eight. In her teen years, Monet took a recurring role in NBC's "American Dreams", a two-time Emmy-winning musical drama set amidst the social turmoil of the 1960s. She also appeared as Rory's girlfriend Missy Kleinfeld on several episodes of acclaimed familial sitcom "8 Simple Rules". In 2004, Monet scored a lead role in "Listen Up" with "Seinfeld" alum Jason Alexander, but the sports comedy was canned by the network after 22 episodes due to rising production costs. Monet's career took a turn for the gruesome in 2006, when she landed a part in the low-budget horror flick "Simon Says" with Crispin Glover. "Taking 5" was next, an outrageous 2007 teen comedy in which Monet plays a geek who kidnaps a superstar boy band in order to boost her popularity. That same year, she appeared in Andrew Fleming's blockbuster teen detective flick "Nancy Drew" as the colorfully named character Inga Veinshtein. In 2010, Monet procured a prominent role in Nickelodeon's popular high school sitcom "Victorious", playing the obnoxious sister of the series' protagonist. "Victorious" was nominated for a 2011 Emmy for Outstanding Children's Program.
