Ella Lucia Montes Lentini is a first generation American; a multi-hyphenate talent with experience in front and behind the camera. She will proudly share she was born & raised in New York City, attributing that, and her immigrant parents – a Sicilian tailor and Peruvian pageant model – as a huge influence on her work. She graduated from New York University’s Gallatin school, with honors in “Screenwriting as a Weapon.” While receiving her B.A. she studied acting at a studio in Hell’s Kitchen with Anthony Abeson.
Ella shadowed an Oscar-nominated director before writing and co-starring in her award-winning directorial debut, Piece of Cake. POC screened at festivals across the world, ending its circuit at HBO’s Outfest, and raised over $10k for an LGBTQ non-profit. Ella is recognized for playing Rami Malek’s twin sisters in the Playstation hit Until Dawn, and for her on camera roles in film & TV, including 9-1-1 and Wizards of Waverly Place. Her latest collaboration project, This Is My LA, recently screened at NewFilmmakers LA.
