Biography

Diana-Maria Riva specializes as the no-nonsense woman who stands out amongst the more peculiar characters that often populate her film and television projects. In the 2009 film "17 Again," a humorous take on adolescence redux, she played a judge whose divorce proceedings are interrupted by Zac Efron's romantic spiel to his separated wife (who is unaware that her husband now inhabits the body of a 17-year-old). She also starred In "What Women Want," another high-concept comedy exploring one of those fantastical "What if?" scenarios that Hollywood is so enamored with: in this case, the possibility of a self-absorbed chauvinist suddenly having the power to hear women's thoughts. On TV, Riva has worked on multiple occasions with actor Bradley Whitford. The first time was on the political drama "West Wing," where Whitford was a member of President Bartlett's close circle of advisors and Riva was the hired gun brought in to help elect the new Democratic presidential ticket. She and Whitford appeared together a second time on "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," a short-lived follow-up project by "West Wing" creator Aaron Sorkin, about the inner workings of a TV comedy sketch show. Whitford found greater success in 2010 opposite Colin Hanks in "The Good Guys," a tongue-in-cheek police series that Riva soon joined as the character Lieutenant Ana Ruiz.
