Salutations! I’m Chala and your Fun Feisty Americanized Latina. Americanized because I was born in Jersey and raised in Kansas by my firecracker of a Latina mom but taught common sense by my Italian-Irish father which btw, he will insist that we are Americans first and foremost.
I moved from NYC to attend Chicago’s SECOND CITY’S Conservatory program. After the freeze burn, I decided to venture West to LA and I was ever so grateful to land the role of brassy Daniela in my dream musical “IN THE HEIGHTS” at two venues; one used the original Tony Award winning choreography. Last year, I filmed two national commercials and booked two great roles in feature films!!! I shot BARBERSHOP 3 in Atlanta, GA directed by Malcom Lee and shot SOY NERO directed by Rafi Pitts. Both films opened in theaters in April 2016. This year, I filmed a Hallmark webisode, THE 11TH (Dr. Cho) and filmed a short film, SOUL (Linda), and recently booked a stint on DAYS OF OUR LIVES (Mrs. Carter).
This past Easter, I finished a wonderful production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s revival version of “CINDERELLA”. I was cast as Charlotte, the snooty & sassy stepsister of Cinderella….who never gets the prince. Digging into the role of Charlotte and why this girl ends up with the toads is what inspired me to start vloging about my adventures with the men I’ve fallen in love with and the adventures I’ve had. Check it out, thanks for watching and…
Enjoy my life…I mean site!
