About me

My name is Heléna, I was born in Como (Italy), however I grew up between Italy and Spain.

I studied acting with John Strasberg and Macarena Pombo; in 2015 I moved to London, studied the Meisner Technique and landed my first role in the Uk, playing Rosa in 'Arrivederci Rosa', for which I have been nominated twice (Uk and Us) Best Actress.

I played the lead role of Lucia in 'Sunburn', released in 2020 in USA and Canada, which is now on Amazon Prime, Sky Store and other platforms.

My film 'Judith', where I play the enigmatic Judith, has been premiered at the 75th Venice Film Festival.

I recently starred in the Feature Films 'Made in Italy', alongside Liam Neeson, and 'Heckle', featuring Steve Guttenberg, in which I portray Laura, a gritty and intense woman.

The Film had its World Premiere at the FrightFest of London.

I have been lucky enough to be directed for huge campaigns by film directors like Tony Kaye, Julio Medem and Maria Ripoll and I also performed 'La Bohème' at the Royal Opera House of London, directed by Richard Jones.

I often play dark and unpredictable roles, however I also really enjoy bringing to life warm and empathetic characters. I do love exploring human nature in all its forms and I always commits myself fully in the journey, being hard working, creative and very focused on set.

I act in English, Italian and Spanish.

I am always happy to read a good script, and be part of a new project, please find my contact details below on my page.
