Tania Gunadi: Los Angeles, California
Tania Gunadi, an adorable, bubbly and funny Disney Star, literally won the lottery when she received a United States green card as a teenager living in Indonesia, and her family moved to Los Angeles, California. The always spirited Tania, earned the principal role in her very first commercial (ironically a Disneyland roller coaster spot), when she was simply the only actor left standing after numerous “green” riders had dropped out. After this initial commercial success, Tania delivered scene stealing, co-starring roles in the Disney Channel Movies “Pixel Perfect” and “Go Figure," as well as impressive guest appearances on the popular TV shows: “Boston Public," “Even Stevens," and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia." In 2009, Disney came calling yet again, and Tania was hired as the feisty drummer and computer-savvy Emma Lau, as well as her avatar alter-ego Dark Tamara, on Disney XD’s live action adventure TV series “Aaron Stone."

A Margarita is a tequila based cocktail, traditionally mixed with triple sec and lime juice, and often served with salt on the rim of the glass. Additionally, Margaritas may be served over ice, up or even blended.

What song or type of music best reflects Los Angeles?
Rock. I play the drums, but I am not in a band. However, my character, Emma, on “Aaron Stone” does play the drums in a band. I've also played drums in a Disney movie called “Pixel Perfect”.
I love to hit the Viper Room… sometimes they have some cool surprise performances. My favorite iconic rockstar would have to be Jim Morrison, because he was such a poet.
