Elle is an actress with training in Acting for Film and Television at the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles. The Bachelor of Fine Arts had a major focus on film and television, but also a strong theatrical component. She started in Lisbon in 2010 with some workshops and stage experiences at amateur theaters, with “Visita a Lisboa” and
“Adolescentes” directed by João Rangel de Lima. Later, at ACT4All with Nicolau Breyner, in an acting workshop for the camera, was when she realized that this was truly her calling. Years later, already in Portland, Oregon in the USA where she spent her senior year of high school, she took her first “steps” on foreign stages by taking two Theatre classes
with final presentations. After this year, Elle moved to Los Angeles to pursue a degree in Acting. After several plays and several creative writing processes for both arts, the films “Silent Heist”, and “The Way Back” are among the most noteworthy. As well as “Nexus”, her own short film where she produced, acted, wrote and edited. In the theater, she starred in “Jesus Hopped The A Train”, “Don’t Teller”, “Hope” and “Hello From Bertha” by Tenessee Williams.
In 2021 already back in Lisbon, she trains with the Improv Group “Os Improváveis” from Lisbon. After 4 modules of deepening and some presentations in Lisbon, Improvisation became a vocation. At the same time, she worked in the production company ALVA Creative Collab in Lourinhã where she co-wrote and developed a Feature Film titled Vedro that is currently in preproduction. In 2023 she launched a documentary series on Youtube called “The Night Owls” with improvised conversations about ideas and concepts concerning the Human Evolution. In addition to conducting the conversations, filming and recording the sound, she is also the editor. Also in 2023, Elle joined the first certified group of Green Consultants in Portugal- a group of Film Producers aiming to create more sustainable productions.
She is interested in cultural projects with strong messages that encourage her to work on her expression in order to transmit the messages respectfully and clearly. Be it in the cinema,
television, on stage, and more recently and intrinsically, improvising.
