LERA LEWIS

Hello!

I'm a London-based British-Russian actress, born and raised in Uzbekistan until the age of 10, having lived in the UK since.

My training begins with Method Acting, taught by Brian Timoney from 2014-15, during which time I had the opportunity to work closely with Casting Directors such as Dan Hubbard, Sarah Hughes, Victoria Burrows and Matthew Lessall. Since graduating, I have been taking many classes ranging from Shakespeare and Meisner to Screen and Scene Study.

I have a distinct child-like quality and innocent look with a fiery and feisty stamina to match. My main focus is screen/camera work, and most recent project was a short film by Vision Zone called ABBIE, in which I starred as Abbie. It had premiered late May, and you can now find the whole film on my Gallery/Video page, or catch a glimpse of it in my showreel!

I believe in constantly learning and growing, which is why on the regular basis I work with an acting coach, Laurence Mitchell. You'll also might find me anywhere across the world just exploring or up in the sky freefalling strapped to a stranger who holds my life in their hands. But most of the time I'm in the 'Audible' world of classic Russsian literature.

"To an actor a word is not just a sound, it is the evocation of images. Your job is to instill your inner visions in others… and convey it in words.” – Stanislavski
