Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Daniela: (About her sexuality) But I…don't believe that gender is just binary, and I never have, so that's what pulls me to sometimes politically identify as a lesbian, because I'm a feminist, and I feel like women are still so suppressed. I don't feel like we've come that far. But I also feel like there are people all along the spectrum, so in that sense, I feel like I would be more bisexual or just, you know, open-ended.

    • Daniela: It evolved quickly when I realized what freedom I'd have. As a man, I could ask questions and walk around at night. I felt it would give me better access to the culture. I don't feel anyone suspected anything. I never felt threatened, like I do here. If I want to, people think I'm a boy. I'm a tomboy. I always wear boys' clothes. I don't have to try very hard one way or the other.

    • Daniela: I had no money for years... It made me have more faith in people and feel like I belonged in the world, actually, and made me feel proud to be part of the world instead of like when I was younger [and was] this rebellious punk rocker who never felt like I belonged anywhere.

    • Daniela: I mean, I definitely have only had significant relationships since I was 19 with women. And politically I'm definitely a lesbian, or a dyke, or on the queer spectrum...But I don't believe that gender is just binary, and I never have, so that's what pulls me to sometimes politically identify as a lesbian, because I'm a feminist, and I feel like women are still so suppressed. I don't feel like we've come that far. But I also feel like there are people all along the spectrum, so in that sense, I feel like I would be more bisexual or just, you know, open-ended.

    • Daniela attended the GLBTQQ film festivals with Itty Bitty.

    • Daniela: I played in some different punk bands. I played in a San Francisco band, The Cipher in the Snow, it was an all-women band. And I played in a band called the Gr'ups-we're actually doing a reunion in the spring, which is really cool. That was a punk band out of Gilman, and we toured in Europe and the U.S., and I ended up staying over in Europe. I did some street theater stuff, and I traveled with a Polish circus, and I just really lived a pretty different life than what I grew up seeing around me. And that's what I'd always dreamed of, so that was great for a lot of years.

    • Daniela: For a lot of years I've just been concentrating on traveling and writing and music… and about a year and a half ago I started taking my acting seriously. I had studied it when I was younger, at Laney College in Oakland. I'd run away from home when I was 16 and moved out there.

    • Daniela: For me, the sexiest kind of woman is a really outspoken, liberated, feminist woman.

    • Daniela: I feel like all the art I've ever made has been about making the world a more inclusive and tolerant place. I'm not going to be involved with something that I don't believe in.

    • Daniela: If I want to, people think I'm a boy. I'm a tomboy. I always wear boys' clothes. I don't have to try very hard one way or the other.

    • Daniela: I've done a lot of crazy things in my life.

  • Daniela Sea currently plays Moira/Max Sweeney on The L Word.

    Daniela Sea currenty plays the complex trangendered Moira/Max Sweeney on The L Word, and she plays the part quite well. Not since season one of The L Word when Marina was around have I been this intrigued by one of the characters on The L Word. Her portrayal as Moira/Max was extremly engaging. In my opinion, Daniela is a highly underrated actress. Of all of the characters that have served as a love interest for Jenny, Moira/Max is my most favorite. Her performance is one of the most emotionally captivating performances that I've ever seen on The L Word. I know that many L Word fans don't like Moira/Max, but I absolutely love her. Daniela's performance as Moira/Max is one of the few good things to come out of the third season of The L Word. I hope that the character Moira/Max sticks around for the rest of The L Word's run. She makes the show very interesting. While I really like Jenny and Moira/Max as a couple, if they don't stay together forever that's fine with me. Just as long as Moira/Max is around, I'll be happy. I don't care what people think, Jenny and Moira/Max were a much better couple than Jenny and Marina. It's always been my goal to make TV shows of my own, and if I ever get to do that, Daniela Sea will definitely be the one of the very first actors I approach to be in one of my projects. In summarry, Daniela Sea is a very tallented actress, and I hope that we she's around long after The L Word ends.moreless
