Biography

A multi-cultural and versatile entertainer, Majandra Delfino kick-started her Hollywood career with a memorable role on the television drama "Roswell" (The WB, 1999-2001; UPN, 2001-02). Playing a teenaged waitress who encounters a group of extra-terrestrial beings in the mysterious New Mexico town launched Delfino to stardom, making her a household name with young adults and science-fiction fans. While making her mark on the small screen with "Roswell," Delfino delivered a solid performance as a young drug addict, appearing alongside seasoned actors such as Michael Douglas and Benicio del Toro in the Academy Award-winning film "Traffic" (2000). Delfino ventured into music territory throughout her career, releasing a couple of independent albums that showcased her sultry vocals and eclectic musicality. In 2011, Delfino returned to series television with the comedy "State of Georgia" (ABC Family), a role that transformed her from a former teen star into an accomplished actress.

Bonus Trivia

.

The Venezuela-born actress on her early casting struggles: "'Everytime I'd go for a commercial, they'd be like 'You don't look American enough' she remembers, and was disheartened that an acting career seemed to be based 'solely on the way you look'.However, things were different when Majandra auditioned for her first feature film, 'Zeus and Roxanne'. 'There were all these really pretty girls in the waiting room at the audition, but they picked me,' she recalls. 'Finally, the acting portion in an acting career kicked in!'" --from a profile of Delfino in THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER SHOWBIZ KIDS SPECIAL ISSUE, November 18-24, 1997
