Born in Israel, the US-based actress Daniella Kertesz diverged into acting while her family has a military background. After moving to the USA in her late teens, Kertesz worked in theaters before her on-screen breakthrough with the 2013 movie World War Z.
The AfterDeath actress started with the Israeli TV screen and now forges her way to Hollywood prominence. All about Kertesz’s professional career, family, and personal life.
Who Are Daniella Kertesz Parents? Nationality?
Kertesz was born on March 11, 1989, in Ramat HaSharon, Israel, making her 32 years old as of 2021.

Her Dorothy Kertesz works as an English teacher.
The Autonomies actress is the youngest of 2 children; her elder brother is a helicopter pilot (worked as a Cobra pilot).
But unlike her family’s interest in the military, the 5 feet 4 inches tall actress instead had a passion for acting and dancing. By the age of 3, she attended Rubin Academy of Music and Dance. Later, when Daniella turned 18, she emigrated to the United States but is an Israeli by nationality.
