Alexandra Daddario is True Detective’s Hottest Clue

Actress Alexandra Daddario is not only the girl with the funny last name but also the hot girl who gets naked for a lucky Woody Harrelson on HBO’s critically acclaimed series, True Detective. Speaking of detective, Alexandra comes from a family who knows a little bit about police work. Her father, Richard C. Daddario is a former federal prosecutor and in 2010, he was appointed as the head of the NYPD Counterterrorism Unit under Mayor Bloomberg. Alexandra’s mother, Catherine Daddario is a lawyer for Merrill Lynch. Alexandra is from New York’s Upper East Side and attended elite Manhattan private schools like The Brearley School and Marymount Manhattan College. With such a pedigreed upbringing, Alexandra was perfect to play the role of a murdered Manhattan socialite in an episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent. However, she had already worked in television earlier when she was 16 years old on the soap opera, All My Children where she played teen victim, Laurie Lewis.  In 2010, Alex made her big screen debut as Annabeth Chase in the fantasy-adventure film, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. She also appeared on TV as Kate Moreau, the girlfriend of Neal Caffrey in the USA series, White Collar.

Alexandra has bounced between TV and film, co-starring in a 2011 comedy, Hall Pass while playing Rachel, The Luncheonette receptionist on the NBC series, Parenthood. She starred in the slasher movie, Texas Chainsaw 3D which was released in 2013 although it had been made in 2011. Also in 2013, Alexandra played Annabeth Chase again in the sequel, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters. Her most noteworthy or at least, eyebrow raising role is as sexy Lisa Tragnetti who has an affair with Woody Harrelson’s character, Detective Hart. After a small appearance in the first season, her role got bigger in True Detective’s second season, much to the delight of the show’s male fans. Another way Alexandra is garnering attention is as one of the actresses who is rumored to be on the nude celebrity hacked pictures list. The first wave of celebrity nude pictures was unleashed on the internet during Labor Day weekend 2014 and a second hacking occurred at the end of September 2014. But even if you didn’t get to see the rumored bad, bad, wicked pictures of Alexandra, chances are you will get to see a lot more of this hot, young actress elsewhere.


While some of her colleagues, actresses Gabrielle Union and Jennifer Lawrence slammed the perpetrators, Alexandra approached the situation with humor and ultimately had one of the best responses.  Although she is rumored to be involved in the celebrity hacks, her tweeted response suggests otherwise. On September 1, she tweeted, “The Internet is scary. Thank god all my personal photos are only of dogs and cats and food, and I’m only naked on tv.”

Alexandra’s character, Lisa is a sexy, seductive woman who eventually is scorned which makes for a lethal combination when it comes to the female sex. True Detective fans are dying to see how far Lisa goes in the series or if she’ll go even farther when it comes to nudity. In an interview with MTV News, Alexandra said the reason she decided to take the role was that it was a good challenge for her.

She knew that nudity was required for the role but, “I really wanted to be part of the show and I understood why the nudity and all of that was required of the character.” In a notorious scene, Alexandra handcuffs Woody Harrelson’s Hart character and then strips naked. In filming the scene, she credits Woody Harrelson for making her feel comfortable, “Woody has done so many different things. He made the whole situation very comfortable,” she said. “It wasn’t anything awkward in that sense. I tried not to think about it too much before shooting the more intimate scenes and just sort of did it.”


It’s rumored that Alexandra is dating her co-star from the Percy Jackson films, Logan Lerman who is 5 years younger. Although neither side has confirmed or denied the rumors, the pair has been seen attending the premiere of his movie, “Noah” and vacationing on the Amalfi Coast of Italy together. Alexandra has also been linked to R&B singer, Trey Songz aka Tremaine Aldon Neverson but that’s only been pure speculation. A confirmed beau is actor/screenwriter, Jason Fuchs whom she dated from 2006 to 2009. He’s best known for writing the animated film, Ice Age: Continental Drift.
