Meet Daniela Bellamy (MC, The 12 Dates of Christmas)

I’d like to introduce you to Daniela Bellamy, my main character from The 12 Dates of Christmas. I’ve spent a lot of time with Daniela over the past year, and I think she’s awesome. I hope you do too!

Here is a quick look at Daniela, as well as what she’s into. (in the biz, we call this a character aesthetic)

Daniela CA

  1. This is Daniela. In my mind, she is the wholesome-looking, girl-next-door type. She’s beautiful but doesn’t know it. Actress Bailee Madison was the inspiration for Daniela.
  2.  She has an obsession with romantic comedies.
  3.  Daniela is a math and science whiz and wants to study mechanical engineering in college. Robotics is her area of interest.
  4.  She loves dogs and has a golden retriever mix named Archie.

Below are more important details about Daniela. (in the biz, we call this a character sketch, or if you want to be fancy, a character dossier, and this one can be found here)
