Notes

The Venezuela-born actress on her early casting struggles: "'Everytime I'd go for a commercial, they'd be like 'You don't look American enough' she remembers, and was disheartened that an acting career seemed to be based 'solely on the way you look'.

However, things were different when Majandra auditioned for her first feature film, 'Zeus and Roxanne'. 'There were all these really pretty girls in the waiting room at the audition, but they picked me,' she recalls. 'Finally, the acting portion in an acting career kicked in!'" --from a profile of Delfino in THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER SHOWBIZ KIDS SPECIAL ISSUE, November 18-24, 1997
