About Me

Hiya! I’m Camilla (she/they).

 

I was born in Utah where the dirt is red and the winters are fierce. My family is big and totally made up of actors, artists, and teachers. As a child, I remember sitting on my grandpa’s knee as he worked on sculptures at his in-home studio. I ate out of ceramic bowls hand thrown by my grandmother. I sang and danced with my siblings and it all gave me an extraordinary permission to pursue the arts.

 

As my family bounced from Utah to Texas to Idaho, I was always the weird non-binary new kid who loved Harry Potter and played the Tuba.

 

I loved that tuba. I loved a lot of things. By the time I started college, I was teaching students guitar during lunch and photographing weddings for extra cash. I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in Theatre Studies w/an Emphasis in Tech and Design. Following this, I spent time in Birmingham England for two years where I really leaned into teaching and taking portraits of actors and artists. I LOVED ENGLAND. I loved the curry, the cobble streets, the wit, the buildings, and the people. I became more interested in what it means to capture a person beyond the outward shell.

 

With this in mind, I found myself auditioning for SMU’s MFA program in Acting. In practicing what it is to capture another human being, I have stepped into the roles of Sumner in Jaclyn Backhaus' Men on Boats, Dromio in A Comedy of Errors, Lysistrata, and Tess in Ike Holter’s Sender. Other roles I’ve played include Gavroche in Les Misérables... and I still cry when I think about portraying The Ottoman Dog in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast for Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready. Happiest surprise of my life.

 

Beyond my work as an artist, I enjoy getting the heck out of the city and getting lost in the wilderness or a new country. I like baking glorious muffins and strength training. Because, you know. Those things go together.
