Life and career

Daddario was born in New York and was raised in the Upper East Side;[2] her parents are lawyers.[3]

She is of Italian and Czechoslovakian descent.[4]

She wanted to be an actress when she was a child but her first television role did not come about until she was 16 years old, when she booked the role of victimized teen Laurie Lewis on All My Children. At the same time, she was a sophomore attending a traditional girls school in New York. "I was finishing my sophomore year of high school at the Brearley School in New York," Daddario said. "I would not have been able to continue my education there."

Daddario co-starred with Logan Lerman and Brandon T. Jackson in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, the fantasy-adventure movie directed by Chris Columbus, which was released on February 12, 2010. Columbus and Craig Titley adapted the screenplay from The Lightning Thief, the first book of Rick Riordan's best-selling teens' series, Percy Jackson & the Olympians. Daddario plays Annabeth Chase. In 2011, she co-starred in the Farrelly Bros' latest comedy, Hall Pass.

Daddario also landed a recurring role on NBC's TV Series Parenthood as Rachel, who serves as a receptionist at The Luncheonette.

She will play as the main protagonist in the slasher film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. It is about a young woman who travels to Texas, along with her friends, to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with a chainsaw-wielding maniac is part of the reward. It will be released in January 2013.
