Alexandra Daddario cast in San Andreas. The casting of Alexandra Daddario in San Andreas (2015) answers the question of who will play the female lead in the Brad Peyton directed film. Daddario will probably be playing the daughter of Dwayne Johnson.

On the plot of San Andreas:

In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter.

On the people behind the scenes of San Andreas:

Beau Flynn is producing and Village Roadshow Pictures is co-financing…Allan Loeb (Wall Street 2) was hired to polish the original script by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore in 2012, but Chad and Carey Hayes (The Conjuring, The Reaping) wrote the most recent draft.

On Alexandra Daddario:

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.

In 2014, Daddario appeared in a recurring role as Lisa Tragnetti on the HBO series True Detective.
