WWE's Sonya Deville is featured in a movie being made in Pinellas County – Tampa Bay Times

Daria Berenato, best known as WWE wrestler Sonya Deville, is featured in a movie filming in Pinellas County this week.
She plays a police officer in “DNA Secrets” produced by David Yates, the former Clearwater Marine Aquarium CEO who helmed the two “Dolphin Tale” movies.
According to Yates, “DNA Secrets” follows an antique store owner who “opens a Pandora’s box” by gifting DNA kits to relatives.
After several family members are killed, the store owner “realizes that she could be next on the killer’s list,” Yates said. She “edges closer to the truth only to discover that she herself is at the heart of a mystery that has put her entire family in danger.”
The movie is shooting at Philippe Park in Safety Harbor, the Clearwater Historical Society’s headquarters and private homes throughout the county.
A former Women’s Tag Team Champion and former mixed martial arts competitor, Berenato has been with the WWE since 2015 but is not currently performing in the ring while she recovers from a torn ACL.
In 2020, a stalker tried to kidnap Berenato from her Lutz home. She escaped. The stalker was arrested and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
It’s not known if she still lives in the Tampa Bay area.
