Daniela Sea plays Moira/Max Sweeney, a transgender computer whiz from Oklahoma who follows Jenny to L.A. and is currently transitioning from female to male.  Max can be found in seasons 3 and 4 of The L Word.

Daniela was born in 1977 to artist/surfer/hippie parents and raised on the shores of Malibu, California. When she was three years old, her father came out as gay. Her stepfather taught her to surf at the age of 6 and moved the family to Hawaii so they could enjoy better surfing. By the age of 12, Sea had taken a job at a biker bar, serving pitchers of brew. At age 16 she travelled to San Francisco and joined the punk/feminist/artist space Gilman Street Project in Berkeley, CA. She studied improv acting in Laney College and was in several punk rock bands, including The Gr'ups and Cypher in the Snow.

Daniela left home at age sixteen. She was seeking not only different ways that other people live, but also different ways she could live in the world. She hitchhiked through Turkey and Eastern Europe, herded goats in abandoned villages in Italy, hiked for a month through India’s Rishekesh while drinking water from the Ganges and collecting wild plants for food, and performed as a fire juggler with a traveling circus in Poland. She spent years with the same tribe doing performances on the streets of Europe, traveling by foot, living off the earth and cooking over open fires.  At one point in her world travels, she lived in India for eight months as a man.

After Daniela returned from Europe, she moved to New York City. She decided to re-enter the acting world, and gave an audition tape to a friend who worked on The L Word's writing staff. Sea then got a call at her restaurant job in New York and was asked to fly to Los Angeles for an audition. She was then offered to perform the role of Moira Sweeney.

 Daniela is as much a philosopher as an actor. Her years of wandering, traveling and living in villages and cities in Western and Eastern Europe and Asia have cultivated a way of life and unique relationship to the world that is undeniable in her eyes when we watch her.

She can also be seen in John Cameron Mitchell’s ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch") upcoming feature film, “Shortbus,” which swept the Cannes Film Festival in 2006, as well as Jamie Babbitt’s “Itty Bitty Titty Committee.” This actor is busy bringing her eccentric life experiences to the screen.

Daniela collaborates with Capital b (the Bitch half of Bitch and Animal) on their film/theatrics/music project, “The Exciting Conclusion.”
