Donnabella Mortel was born an entertainer. As a child, basking in the spotlight, she utilized every outlet available- including leads in musicals, dance recitals she wasn’t even old enough for, ice skating performances, beauty pageants that she won, and runway shows where she refused to walk down with anyone else (what a diva!) But don’t be fooled by her girlish appearance; Donnabella was a tomboy growing up. She climbed buildings, lit firecrackers, and built forts with her boy cousins growing up. She also played every sport that was offered.
Donnabella was born and raised in Seattle, WA. She became the cheerleading captain for Seattle Preparatory, where she excelled academically, graduating after her junior year. She continued as a cheerleader through her years at Seattle University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Criminal Justice Forensic Psychology and a B.A. In Humanities. Upon graduation, she became a professional dancer for the NBA with the Seattle SuperSonics.
Teased again by the energy of entertainment, Donnabella packed her bags and courageously relocated to Los Angeles to pursue her childhood dreams. She proudly represented Los Feliz in Donald Trump’s 2012 Miss California USA Pageant. During her time in Hollywood, Donnabella has acted in many projects including Oliver Stone’s “Savages,” ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder,” and McDonald’s “Game Time Gold,” as well as produced projects like “Retail Web Series.” She has even narrated audio-books including, “This Shattered World,” This starlet is a pint-sized powder-keg with a big personality!
