Jordana Brewster’s talent, beauty and natural screen presence have etched her a permanent place in Hollywood in both film and television. An integral part and original cast member of the “Fast & Furious” series at Universal “Furious 7” smashed box office records this past spring to make it Universal’s biggest franchise of all time.
In addition to reprising her role of “Mia Toretto” this past spring in “Furious 7,” Jordana was last seen in theaters starring alongside Katherine Heigl and Patrick Wilson in “North of Hell.” She also was seen in “American Heist,” starring with Hayden Christensen and Adrien Brody which was in theaters earlier in 2015.
Jordana played an essential role in the “Dallas” reboot for TNT and is currently starring in the second season of ABC’s crime drama “Secret and Lies.” Some of Brewster’s past credits include roles on TNT’s “Dark Blue” and NBC’s “Chuck,” the starring role opposite James Franco in “Annapolis” for Disney’s Touchstone Pictures and a role in “Nearing Grace,” an indie film adapted from Scott Sommer’s novel Nearing’s Grace, which premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival in July 2005.
Brewster also starred in “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” prequel, directed by Jonathan Liebesman for New Line, and was seen in the Sundance hit “D.E.B.S.,” based on Angela Robinson’s comedy short, which was released by Samuel Goldwyn Films in March 2005.
Jordana was cast as “Mia” in “The Fast and Furious” for director Rob Cohen in 2001 and as “Delilah” in the science-fiction thriller “The Faculty” for director Robert Rodriguez and Miramax’s Dimension Films in 1998. Brewster also starred alongside Cameron Diaz, Blythe Danner and Christopher Eccleston in “The Invisible Circus” for director Adam Brooks, which premiered at Sundance 2001. She received critical praise for her work in the highly rated NBC miniseries ”The Sixties.”
Brewster sharpened her acting skills on the daytime drama “As the World Turns” where she divided her time between high school and her role as “Nikki Munson” on the Emmy Award-winning series. She took some time off after “The Fast and Furious” to attend Yale University, graduating in 2003 with a degree in English. She has lived in Brazil, England and New York and currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband and her new born baby.
