Kelly Lou Dennis is an award-winning actor, writer and rising filmmaker in Los Angeles, CA.


Kelly has played the lead in a number of independent features such as THE ONES THAT STAY BEHIND, for which she was awarded "Best Dramatic Actress" at the Tabloid Witch Awards.

She auditioned into the Master Class at Anthony Meindl's Studio and also studies with Annie Grindlay.


Kelly's first action role was in the award-winning film VAMPARIAH. She continued training under Jino Kang (Masters Hall Of Fame) for WEAPON OF CHOICE, and has continued her work fighting on screen.


Kelly writes dark, character-driven ensembles that highlight and explore life in a patriarchal society, gender expectations and the objectification of women.


Though she started by writing features, she recently was accepted into a Sundance Collab course that helped her develop and write her first pilot.


Kelly recently directed short film GOOD GIRLS GET FED, on which she also acted, wrote and produced. It is currently finishing up post-production before hitting the festival circuit.

She also wrote, co-directed and starred in CARRION COMFORT, a short film that won "Audience Choice Online" and premiered at Sydney's Lift-Off Film Festival.


Her feature script by the same name was a finalist at the Athena Screenwriting Lab.
