Dania Ramirez joins Joseph Gordon-Levitt for a bike ride in Premium Rush. The film follows a group of Manhattan bike messengers, one of whom picks up a shady package that attracts the attention of a dirty cop. Ramirez plays a messenger, and rumor has it she'll be wearing that bikini the entire film. Not really, but this bio-gallery should have enough bikini action to make up for it.
Ramirez was born in the Dominican Republic.
When she was 15, she was discovered by a modeling scout while working in a Los Angeles convenience store.
She got her start appearing in commercials throughout her teens, and eventually decided to pursue acting as a career. The decision led her to the Actor's Workshop in New York City.
Ramirez began booking roles in mainstream productions after moving back to Los Angeles, including a recurring role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 2003, and a part in Spike Lee's She Hate Me in 2004.
Roles in X-Men: The Last Stand, The Sopranos and Entourage helped further raise her profile.
Ramirez has also appeared in several music videos, including Jay-Z's "Streets is Watching" in 1998 and Santana's "Into the Night" in 2007.
Perhaps the greatest testament to Ramirez's talents? She makes a bike helmet look sexy.
