Daniella Orion Perkins
June 13, 2000
Anaheim, California, U.S.
Perkins was born at the Anaheim Regional Medical Center to a teen mother who raised Daniella and her younger sister, Devenity, as a single mother. They grew up in Orange County, California. As children, they would put on plays for their own amusement. She was home schooled to make time for her career.
Perkins attempted creating a YouTube channel at 11 with her sister. In 2008, they began a fashion, location, and restaurant review website WzTheBuzz and went on to officially launch it as a business in 2011. Perkins created a Musical.ly around 2015 and has since gained over 1.8 million followers on TikTok. In addition, her YouTube channel has over 800 thousand subscribers.
Perkins decided to pursue acting professionally in her early teens. Her first venture was with Devenity in the 2014 short film Senior Slasher. She made her television debut with a guest role on Girl Meets World in 2016.
Perkins began working with Nickelodeon in 2016, playing the recurring role of Sophie in the series Legendary Dudas. She starred as Ciara in the Nickelodeon series Knight Squad from 2018 to 2019, a role she reprised in a crossover episode of Henry Danger. She voiced Winnie in Middle School Moguls. She also made guest appearances in a number of Nickelodeon series, participated in reality series, and appeared in the 2016 television film, Blurt.
