Cynthia Santiago: Ready for Hollywood
We at Creative Juice Online have had the opportunity to work with many celebrities over the years and every single one of them are very unique in their approach, dedication and goals set for themselves but all in all, we are always super excited to be part of their digital team.
Today we introduce you to Puerto Rican born, Cynthia Santiago, a serious actress with the talent, discipline and a personal commitment to make it to the top. It’s rare to work with such dedication that devotes her entire life to her talent. From studying with the best acting coaches, to jetting to Hollywood for major auditions, Ms. Santiago is a non stop train. She will make it.
In getting to know Cynthia I took some time reviewing her work, her reel, the many projects she has worked on and to see her work in 99 Homes, directed by Ramin Bahrani of Iran, starring award winning actor Michael Shannon (8 Mile, Revolutionary Road, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, Tak Shelter, The Man of Steel and many more) and Andrew Garfield (The Amazing-Spiderman & The Amazing Spider Man 2, The Social Network, Never Let Go, I’m Here, Lions For Lambs and more). I was astounded to learn how she landed her role, her drive to succeed and maybe one day we will detail it step by step, but to say we are proud is an understatement. Cynthia Santiago is most definitely on her way and in 2017 Los Angeles will be her permanent home as the buzz is moving quickly.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, bi-lingual actress Cynthia Santiago is a true performing artist. She is trained in Meisner and the Chubbuck Technique, but her journey began with the study of classical ballet. Training from the age of seven, she auditioned for Ballet Concierto, the largest ballet company in Puerto Rico, and was accepted into the program on scholarship. She was taught by many world renowned dancers. When senior year in high school came, she dreamed of moving to America and performing on Broadway. This dream seemed to move closer as her father’s transfer at work brought her family to Texas. She joined the dance program at the University of North Texas with hopes to later get into musical theater. After illness forced an extended break from the program, she realized her opportunity to rejoin ballet had passed. She tried her hand at acting and found a new passion. Her discipline as a dancer and love of acting has resulted in a successful career in a relatively short time. She is constantly training and perfecting her craft.
She has been cast in several films, shorts, TV shows and many commercials and print ads. Director Ramin Bahrani mentioned her as one of the “great actors” he worked with on the film “99 Homes” at its Sundance’15 premiere in Park City, Utah. (Source: IMDb). While attending Sundance Film Festival in 2015 she was selected “Best Dressed” by Vanity Fair en Espanol.
