Life and career
Daddario was born in New York on March 16, 1986, and was raised on the Upper East Side; her parents are lawyers. Her brother is actor Matthew Daddario. She has Italian, Irish, and Czechoslovakian ancestry.
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 appointed for the role of victimized teen Laurie Lewis on All My Children.
Daddario co-starred with Logan Lerman and Brandon T. Jackson in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, a 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 played the main protagonist in the slasher film Texas Chainsaw 3D. The film was 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. Texas Chainsaw 3D was released in January 2013.
At the end of 2012, Daddario starred in the music video for Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive". In August 2013, Daddario appeared on an episode of Chelsea Lately to promote her movie, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters, and to talk about life before her acting career.
