Who is Dalia Hernandez?
The beautiful Mexican actress Dalia Hernandez Armenta, was born under the zodiac sign of Leo on 14 August 1985, in Veracruz, Mexico – her ethnicity is Latino. She’s perhaps known best for her role as Seven in the 2006 movie “Apocalypto”, which had 23 award nominations, including three for Oscars – Best Achievement in Make-up, Best Achievement in Sound Mixing, and Best Achievement in Sound Editing, and won nine.
Early life, family, and education
Dalia was raised in Veracruz, by her Catholic parents, but that is all that’s known about her childhood, since she prefers to keep her private life away from the public eye; she hasn’t disclosed her parents’ names and occupations, nor about any siblings, so it’s assumed that she was raised an only child.
She attended a local high school, and upon matriculating in 2003, she enrolled at Veracruz University (Universidad Veracruzana), from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Contemporary Dance in 2008.
Soon after graduation, Dalia made her acting debut in the Oscar-nominated “Apocalypto”, written and directed by Mel Gibson, and also starring Gerardo Taracena and Raoul Max Trujillo. This action adventure drama follows the story of the Mayan kingdom, which is faced with the attack of the warriors who are seeking human sacrifices for their gods. Jaguar Paw (portrayed by Rudy Youngblood) hides his pregnant woman Seven (Dalia Hernandez) and their little son in a deep hole near their tribe, but he’s captured, while his wife stayed trapped in the pit where she gives birth to her newborn son.
For her performance, Dalia won Imagen Foundation Award – Best Supporting Actress,Film, in 2007, and after that she made an appearance portraying Rosa in the episode “Maria Magdalena” of the series “Capadocia”, in this drama about women imprisoned in an experimental complex in Mexico City, starring Aida Lopez, Dolores Heredia, and Juan Manuel Bernal; the series had eight awards nominations and six wins.
After she paused her acting career for over five years, she was cast to play Nayeli in the 2014 TV movie “The Legend of the Mask”, alongside Rodolfo Guerrero, Ulrich Gebauer and Michael Fitz, however, this adventure drama thriller had no award nomination and it wasn’t positively critiqued by the viewers.
Dalia seems to have again paused her career, waiting for another six years to make an appearance in the 2020 short movie “Ya’ax Che’” starring alongside Jose Luis Vidales and Eduardo Huezo, in this drama about twin brothers from the Mayan tribe who are sent on a quest to save the Princess of the Moon, but soon realize that the ruler of the underworld Xibalba is after them.
Dalia’s fans will be happy to hear that she’s acted in the movie “Miracle Underground”, which should be released by the end of 2022, and her appearance as Patricia is announced in the drama “Soho Sq.” written and directed by Guy C. A.
Love life and relationships
There were various rumors concerning Dalia’s love life, being romantically linked to some of her fellow actors, however, she has neither denied nor confirmed these assumptions. On her Instagram account, there are no photos of any men, and in her interviews, she avoids answering questions about her relationships.
Some rumors were saying that she was seen with a young, tall man hugging her in front of her apartment, but she then stated that it was her cousin who she hadn’t seen for a long time.
As of January 2022, Dalia seems to be single, she hasn’t been married or engaged, and has no children.
Hobbies and other interests
One of Dalia’s favorite hobbies is dancing, and she is one of the luckiest people whose occupation is their hobby; she spoke about how much she likes her work as a dancer, and she likes to mix acting and dancing, so she dreams of playing in a musical.

Dalia’s favorite actors are Ryan Gosling, Mel Gibson and John Travolta, and she enjoys watching movies starring one of them, such as “The Notebook”, “What Women Want”, and “Saturday Night Fever”.
Dalia stated once that when she was cast to play Seven, she was delighted to meet Mel Gibson, and once she heard that she would work with him, she couldn’t believe that her dream was going to become true.
Her fans can keep track of her life and work through her Instagram, which is under the name ‘harmentad’ (‘harm’ in English) and her Facebook account under the name Dalia H; on Instagram, she has gained nearly 5,000 followers, while her Facebook page has been followed by over 1,000 people.
