Jordana Brewster

Having emerged from the daytime soap world of "As the World Turns" (CBS, 1956-2010), actress Jordana Brewster rose quickly to mainstream stardom as Mia Toretto in the summertime blockbuster "The Fast and the Furious" (2001). Though she found herself skyrocketing to the top of men's magazines polls, Brewster took time off to complete her studies at Yale University before returning to acting with turns as often feisty supporting characters in films like "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" (2006) and "Annapolis" (2006). Well-cast as the brainy ex-girlfriend of series star Zachary Levi on the action comedy "Chuck" (NBC, 2007-2012), Brewster reprised Toretto for the fourth through seventh installments of the popular franchise, "Fast & Furious" (2009), "Fast Five" (2011), "Fast & Furious 6" (2013) and "Furious 7" (2015) while landing a regular series role as Elana Ramos, daughter of the cook to the notorious Ewing family on the high-profile reboot of "Dallas" (TNT, 2012-14), and on the small screen adaptation "Lethal Weapon" (Fox 2016- ). Thanks to her success in film and on television, Brewster had established herself as a diverse performer of immense intelligence and wit.
