Daniella Pineda (born February 20, 1987) is a Mexican-American actress, writer, comedian and producer from Oakland, California.

In 2009 she graduated from Mill College with a degree in sociology and radio journalism. In 2010, Pineda left San Francisco to pursue a screenwriting and producing career in independent horror films in New York.

While trying to land any PA job she could get, she wrote and produced a series of satirical YouTube videos that landed on sites such as The Huffington Post and Gawker. This got the attention of her current manager, who advised Pineda to consider a career as an actress. Shortly after, Pineda booked spots on Homeland, Inside Amy Schumer, two features and a short with director Ed Burns, as well as a series regular role on the series The Originals.

In January 2013 it was announced that she was cast as the witch Sophie for episode 4x20 of the CW's hit series The Vampire Diaries. This episode serves as a backdoor-pilot for a possible spin-off series, revolving around The Originals and taking place in the French Quarter of New Orleans.

Season one of The Originals was set to premiere on Tuesday, October 15. However, on July 29, 2013, The CW announced that the series premiere would instead air on October 3, 2013, following the fifth season premiere of The Vampire Diaries in order to attract fans of the series. On October 10, 2013, the CW ordered three additional scripts for the series.

Pineda stars as Ruby Simms on NBC's new drama American Odyssey.

Pineda currently resides in New York City and is finishing her first full-length feature, The Devil's Breath.
