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 Film '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 International 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 have recently finished filming the Feature Film 'Tutti a bordo', directed by the Golden Globe winning director Luca Miniero.
I also made my directional debut with '2020', which has been screened at the Venice Film Festival, and has also been selected at the Rhode Island Film Festival.
'2020' recently won 'Best Short Film' at the prestigious Montecatini Film Festival.
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.
