On June 18, 1976, in Columbus Ohio, Alana De La Garza was born. I think I was already three years out of high school, in a good job, and already married by then. Suddenly I feel old…
Anyway, Back to Alana. Her family later relocated to El Paso, Texas, where she won the "Miss Photogenic" title in the Miss El Paso Teen USA local beauty pageant. She was later a special-needs teacher and enrolled at The University of Texas, studying physical therapy and social work. After graduating, she had some small acting roles in Orlando, Florida. She later moved to New York City, where she had the role of Rosa Santos on the soap opera, All My Children, and guest starring on several TV shows such as JAG, Charmed, Two and a Half Men, and Las Vegas.
Outside of her role as ADA Connie Rubirosa on Law & Order, she may be best known for her recurring role of Marisol Delko on the CBS television series CSI: Miami. (Lucky for her she now has Sam Waterston and Linus Roache to look at, rather than David Caruso.)
It was recently reported in an Orlando newspaper that Alana was married a few weeks ago.
Happy Birthday Alana!
