Hey, I'm Priscila!

Los Angeles, California

I danced my way from Brazil to NYC. In that amazing concrete jungle I fell in love with theater and retired my pointe shoes. After a few amazing years doing plays, musicals and commercials on the East Coast, I moved to Los Angeles to follow some even bigger dreams.

Here, I started my acting career on film and TV! I also got out of my comfort zone and produced a few short films.

Recently I wrote a film about immigration based on real stories that happened to me and friends of mine. This is my biggest passion project to date and I can't wait to start a campaign for it here on Seed&Spark. Follow me and don't miss it ;)
