Actress Dania Ramirez gets a thrill from her new film, ‘Premium Rush’

It’s ironic that Dania Ramirez got the role as a bike messenger in the action flick “Premium Rush,” because she grew up with an aversion to traveling on two wheels. “I had a bike phobia,” the Dominican Republic native admits. “I fell down when I was like 7 and got really hurt. So I wasn’t really into it.” But in show biz, you have to sacrifice to succeed.
