Bilingual Cuban-American, TV Series Regular (read more)
I comes from an artistic family from generations. Started at age 9 working as a model for magazines, acting in musical theater plays on full scholarship, and performing on national television. I have been a Professional Dancer/Choreographer for over 23 years. In 2011 I decided merge my extensive stage experience into film after winning season 1 as a television series regular (roughly 4 million fan votes) with Liberman Broadcasting/Estrella Television Network, which is a similar format to "Dancing with the Starts" In Spanish called "Mi Sueno es Bailar". I have been fortunate to be in several TV Pilots, Television Series and Films since then and been featured as a Reality TV Personality/Performer/Choreographer on the Cover of the Spanish 'People' Magazine 7 times among other publications national and international such as Germany, Chicago, Peru, Texas, Mexico, Florida just to name a few (Press Kit available).
Besides being a performing artist in many genres, I take pride in being an Athlete so I'm also a fitness enthusiast and have trained in Martial Arts such as Jiu Jitsu. My dedicated disciplinary work ethics follow me wherever I go. People who meet me say "There is something different about me (and mention my smile)" I've been told I'm "Authentic", "Genuine", "something else", "radiant", "not fake" among other descriptions.
On a social level here is personal facebook http://www.facebook.com/MelissaPastranaUnleashed where I have people from the industry, family/friends and some fans of Television show. If you are an actor needing some support or in the industry as a crew/producer/model/make-up etc.. don't hesitate to add me - I have all kinds of friends/acquaintances. I love to network and share my journey with others. After all no one can make it alone. We need each other.
