  • My first acting experience was when I was 3-yrs-old. I was in a video that parents used to potty-train their kids through sign language and dance. I don’t think I was even potty trained at the time!
  • My favorite color is yellow because it reminds me of the sun, and the sun makes me happy. Even the comforter on my bed has a sun with a happy face on it.
  • My name, “Eliana”, is of Latin origin and means “daughter of the sun”. Go figure!
  • Have you ever been to a Luau and seen a fast hip shaking dance? It’s called Tahitian dancing. It’s one of my favorite styles of dancing that I can do. You can also find me dancing hip-hop , contemporary and the Samoan Siva. Acting and dancing are my favorite things to do!

  • I’m naturally very curious. When I was 4, my family and I were staying at a hotel when I noticed a big red handle and wondered what would happen if I pulled it. I quickly learned that it was a fire alarm! The bad thing is, it was 6 am, in the middle of the winter and people had to evacuate to the outside into the snow. They were not happy.
  • I’ve had the same ring on my finger for 2.5 yrs. and I plan to wear it until it doesn’t fit anymore. The ring says “CTR” which means Choose The Right. I even wore it in all my scenes of Hobbs & Shaw.
  • I’ve lived in Florida for 5-years. Living close to the beach gives me the opportunity to learn how to surf every day. However, it wasn’t until I went to Kauai to shoot Hobbs & Shaw that I learned how to surf! Now I can hardly wait for surf season.
  • I love pickles and olives, I could eat them as a meal. I especially love the green olives with the peppers in them. Yum!
  • I’m part Samoan/Mexican from my dads side, and Argentine/Italian from my moms side.
