Though she's been in the entertainment industry for over a decade, Caity Lotz only gained popularity in the last few of years after starring in two TV series, Arrow and Legends Of Tomorrow.

The 30-year-old American actress started as a dancer, touring with Avril Lavigne and Lady Gaga and appearing in their music videos, too. Go to YouTube and search for her dancing videos – all we can say is, the girl can move!

No wonder then in 2013 she starred as a dance instructor opposite Josh Holloway in the movie Battle Of The Year. “I started (dancing) when I was seven years old, and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really amazing artistes,” she states on

Nowadays her acting career has become her No. 1 priority, but since her roles involve a lot of stunt work, Lotz relies on her dancing skills to be nimble. It helps that she’s a martial arts artist who trains in several fighting styles including taekwondo, wushu and Muay Thai. She's skilled in parkour, too.

Needless to say, this is one gal you don’t want to mess with.
