Maiara Walsh has an infectious smile and kind heart that are enough to make anyone fall in love. She’s best known for her role as troubled teen Ana Solis on ABC’s Desperate Housewives, but she also has several high-profile roles such as Meena Paroom in the Disney Channel sitcom Cory in the House and Simone Sinclair in Switched at Birth.
Her latest movie is Grace, an atmospheric indie film about a woman forced to leave her family for an abusive marriage. Walsh says her character was inspired by people she’s encountered who have sexually exploited her; therefore, there are no real-life people she draws inspiration from in creating it.
She’s portrayed a variety of complex characters, from Gabrielle’s over-sexed niece Ana to Bree’s sexually abusive stepfather Carlos (Ricardo Chavira) and Lynette’s deaf mother Alisa Stevens (Marlee Matlin). Additionally, she played Vicky Patterson in Lifetime’s Identity Theft of a Cheerleader; however, Desperate Housewives will always remain her most memorable role.

The Vampire Diaries
