Meet Maria Scenna

I’m a working actress based in NYC who repeatedly continues to push the boundaries of performing art. I’ve been compared to a young Christina Applegate, Scarlett Johansson, Kat Dennings, Michelle Williams, and even Courtney Love. My passion for performing spans my entire life, starting at the age of six, where I studied ballet, tap, and jazz with Susan Wright School of Dance for eight years.

I then learned to play the violin and became active within my school’s musical groups, such as choir and acapella. A talented and creative student, I decided to pursue Drama and Creative Writing at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA.

Upon graduation, I began writing for various publications and clients, as well as had a brief foray publishing music under record label Quark Records. Wanting to perform again, I began attending acting workshops and appearing in numerous music videos, student and independent films, and movies.

I have an interesting and edgy look that enables me to play a variety of characters, ranging from blue-to- white-collar from all different decades. My type includes roles such as young mom, nurse, teacher, rookie cop, firefighter, flight-attendant, court reporter, lawyer, politician, victim, and the list goes on. I’m also fluent in Italian and Spanish.

I have appeared in numerous short films, commercials, industrials, web series, and photo shoots. My enthusiasm and strong work ethic has made me a favorite collaborator among the many productions I’ve worked on and I welcome all serious inquiries for press interviews, personal appearances, and future projects!
