Perhaps after comedy, police procedurals will follow as the most common type of TV shows on air at any given time. They are time tested stories that have longevity and attract a lot of audiences. They have also been a means for several unknown actors to make a name for themselves, due to the revolving door of guest actors it requires. One actress who has made a name for herself through the genre is Daniela Ruah.

The Portuguese-American actress was launched into the limelight for playing the role of NCIS Special Agent, Kensi Blye in popular television show NCIS: Los Angeles.

Asides the critical acclaim she has received; Ruah has been able to amass a considerable amount of wealth as a professional actress.

Daniela Ruah’s Career Progression From Telenovelas To Prime Time TV Series

Daniela Ruah is a first-generation immigrant born to Jewish parents who immigrated from Portugal. Her mother is an otologist and her father, an ENT surgeon. Although she was born in the United States, specifically in Boston, on the 2nd of December, 1983, Daniela was raised in Portugal, after her family moved back to the European nation.

The Portuguese-American television star attended the prestigious St Julian’s School in Portugal. Upon her graduation, Daniela started her acting journey by taking up several roles in telenovelas. She earned her acting debut at age 16 when she portrayed the character of Sara in the telenovela, Jardins Proibidos.

A couple of years after that, the budding TV star migrated to the UK to attend the London Metropolitan University. She graduated with a degree in performing arts upon the completion of her program. Ruah returned to her native country after earning her Bachelor of Arts degree to continue her acting career.

Upon her return to Portugal, the actress signed up for the celebrity dance competition, Danca Comigo, which she eventually won. Ruah’s success at the contest increased her popularity across Portugal and earned her major roles in theatre, short films, as well as television shows.

In 2007, Ruah opted to study at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York City. The star actress made her career break into Hollywood when she landed the role of Special Agent Kensi Blye in CBS action drama NCIS: Los Angeles.

As of 2020, Daniela Ruah’s overall net worth stands at a whopping $7 million and it is believed that the talented actress’ appearance on the long-running police procedural show is largely responsible for her huge cash flow. NCIS: Los Angeles was an instant hit and made waves across the United States, as well as the globe. More so, the television show has some of its cast members on the list of highest-paid television actors and actresses in the film industry.
