Danay García (born 5 July 1984) is an American actress, of Cuban origin. She is known for her roles as Sofia Lugo on Fox network's drama series Prison Break and Luciana Galvez on AMC's horror drama series Fear the Walking Dead.

During the 2007 writer’s strike, Garcia made it through multiple rounds of auditions for the Bond girl, Camille Montes, in MGM and Eon Productions’ “Quantum of Solace”, but had to be dropped due to a clause in her Fox contract.
