She returned to the screens in 2002 with the portrayal of María Virtudes ‘Mariví’ in the telenovela “Lejana Como El Viento”, produced by Laura Visconti and aired on Venevisión. Daniela caught the attention of agents with that role, so other telenovela roles soon followed, such as Yadira Paz in “Estrambótica Anastasia” starring next to Norkys Batista y Juan Pablo Raba, and as Jéssica in “Negra Consentida”, both of which were produced by Radio Caracas Televisión (RCTV) and broadcast in 2004.

Daniela’s next major success came in 2012 when she landed the roles of Mariela ‘Marielita’ Campos Miranda in Alberto Gómez’s telenovela “Corazón Apasionado”, and as Olivia Kloster in the Telemundo telenovela “Relaciones Peligrosas”. The latter is the American adaptation of the hit Spanish drama TV series “Física O Química”, and follows relationships between students, their parents, and teachers at a bilingual school. Her appearance in the show brought her nominations for Best Supporting Actress at the 2012 Premios Tu Mundo, and Best Telenovela Villain at the 2013 Miami Life Awards.
