HONEY

JESSICA ALBA (Honey Daniels) marks her first starring role in a major studio film with Honey. She most recently starred in James Cameron's Dark Angel, Cameron's first project since the history-making Titanic and his first television venture. Jessica made a stellar debut in FOX's one-hour drama, starring as Max, a genetically-enhanced human prototype who escapes from her government captors only to live out her life in the underground of 21st Century Seattle. In the series' first season, she was nominated for a Golden Globe and People's Choice Award. She won the TV Guide Award as Breakout Star of the Year—voted on by readers of the popular magazine—and Jessica was voted Favorite TV Actress at the 2001 Teen Choice Awards. 

Alba fell in love with acting at a very early age, becoming active professionally at the age of 12, studying with local Los Angeles acting coaches. Shortly thereafter, she landed her first jobs in the feature film world in Camp Nowhere and in a scene that ended up on the cutting room floor in Leaving Las Vegas. Soon thereafter she was offered a lead role at the age of 14 in an update of the classic family series Flipper, which ran for two seasons in syndication. At 16 Jessica left Los Angeles for the East Coast to study with the Atlantic Theater Company and founders William H. Macy & David Mamet. A flurry of film activity followed her return to Los Angeles, including supporting roles in the studio films Idle Hands and Never Been Kissed with Drew Barrymore. She also traveled to London to star in the independent feature Paranoid for acclaimed British director John Duigan, and to Malaysia to film the title role in The Sleeping Dictionary with Bob Hoskins, Brenda Blethyn, Emily Mortimer and Noah Taylor. 

L'Oreal recognized Jessica's talent and beauty, engaging her in a worldwide endorsement contract in early 2001. She has graced the covers on Entertainment Weekly, TV Guide, Glamour, Seventeen and numerous other publications around the world, and has been on the oft-buzzed about Maxim "Hot 100 List” more times than any other actress…all by the age of 22. Although many describe her as an "exotic beauty,” Alba was raised in a traditional American family in California. Her mother is from Florida with a French-Danish heritage, while her father is a Californian with Mexican-Indian and Spanish lineage.
