Early life and the beginning of a career
David Paul is of Norwegian descent and grew up with a younger brother in Moline, where their father was a doctor. At a young age, both brothers aspired to a career as an actor, which they would later pursue after completing their respective education. David’s first project was on an episode of the show “Twenty Good Years”, where he worked as a stunt double.
He continued to work as part of the stunt team for several other shows and got more notable projects over the years, including “The Young and the Restless”, “The Mentalist” and “Bones”.
Aside from his stunt work, he took up voice acting early on, with one of his first projects being the video game “Resistance 2”, a first-person shooter game released for PlayStation 3 and serving as the sequel to “Resistance: Fall of Man”. He also lent his voice to the film”G-force”.
Continued stunt and acting work
In 2009, Olsen had a small role in the movie “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” in which he played a Strike Force member alongside Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson. The film is a sequel to 2007’s ‘Transformers’ and continues the story two years after the events of the original film. The film received mixed reviews as it lacked the same depth and appeal of the first film.
Despite that, the film was a box office success, making it one of the highest-grossing that year.
He then moved on to stunt projects and worked on “Community”, “True Blood” and “Extant”. In 2010, he was hired to be part of the stunt team for “NCIS: Los Angeles”. The show is a spin-off of “NCIS”, starring LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell. Due to his resemblance to his brother Eric Christian Olsen, who is a regular cast member of the show, he has done his stunts and acted as his doppelganger. His long tenure on the show has also led to a few guest appearances, mainly playing minor unnamed and uncredited characters.
Two other recent projects include “Swiss Army Man” and “The Nun”.
Wife – Daniela Ruah
Daniela was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and is of Jewish descent. Both of her parents worked in the medical field, although they only spent a short time in the US after her birth and eventually moved back to Portugal where she received her education. During her time there, she developed a strong interest in acting, which was supported by her parents. She trained in both dancing and acting, which led to her participation in a national dance competition. After that, she performed in several telenovelas.
To further expand her reach and skills, she moved to the UK at the age of 18 to enroll at London Metropolitan University where she became part of the performing arts programme.
She also worked in local productions there, and after college moved to New York City, where she enrolled at the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute. Her first project in the US after completing her education was a guest appearance on “Guiding Light”, and was later cast as a member of the team on “NCIS: Los Angeles”. The team first appeared in an introductory episode in “NCIS”, before the spin-off officially launched in 2009.
The Success of Daniela Ruah
Ruah went on as a cast member of “NCIS: Los Angeles”, with many of his original cast members also still on the show; she plays the role of the only female field agent on the team. Her character is the daughter of a Marine and spent some time on the streets during her childhood after her father’s death, as she never really knew her mother. She often works as an undercover cop and is also a skilled sniper. She is not afraid to use all of her tools at her disposal, even her sexuality. As the show progresses, she develops a romance with Marty Deeks, played by her husband’s brother, and the two got married in Season 10.
She also reprized her character in a crossover episode with “Hawaii Five-0”, which exists in the same universe. The police procedural show, as the name implies, is set in Hawaii and also exists with other similar shows created by Peter M. Lenkov. Some of her recent projects include theater work, which was featured in the play “Proof” staged in Los Angeles. She also appeared as the host of the “Eurovision Song Contest 2018”, along with Filomena Cautela, Silvia Alberto and Catarina Furtado – the competition was held that year in Lisbon, Portugal.
David Paul met Daniela on the set of “NCIS: Los Angeles”, and the two started dating. They had a child in 2013 that got them engaged, and they married the following year in Portugal, having an interfaith marriage as Ruah is a Jew while Olsen is a Lutheran. Two years later they had a second child. Due to their work, the couple often makes an effort to organize workouts for the family to keep them fit. Their children participate in some of these sessions, as can be seen on Ruah’s social media accounts.
