| ||Michelle Belegrin as Andrea Zavatti |
Michelle Belegrin joins the cast of "Desire" as Andrea Zavatti, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy restaurateur who quickly becomes the object of affection for the Thomas brothers, Louis (Nate Haden) and Alex (Zack Silva) - the primary cause of the rift that develops between them.
Belegrin is truly a California girl. She grew up in Sacramento, attended the University of California at Santa Barbara and eventually settled in Los Angeles. Belegrin began her career in modeling, amassing a broad collection of American television commercials for advertisers such as Honda, Panasonic and Bally's Total Fitness, as well as print campaigns for such trendy brands as Hard Candy Cosmetics. She has also modeled in fashion spreads for Marie Claire Magazine, Elle, She and Fashion Quarterly.
Belegrin has accumulated a handful of film credits and has appeared in "Kitchen Confidential" on Fox. She also co-produced the theatre production of "Spike Heels" with Theresa Rebeck, as well as starred in an original theatre production entitled "Young Moses."
When she isn't acting, Belegrin enjoys water sports, such as swimming and scuba diving.
