Kelly Lou Dennis is a Bay Area-raised storyteller who recently made the move to Los Angeles. Having starred in a number of dramatic and action independent feature films, she has been praised for both her emotional work as well as her roles in martial arts films.
She was first introduced to fight choreography when she landed the lead role in the award-winning feature film 'Vampariah'. She underwent a year of personal training in mixed martial arts for the film, and continued training under Jino Kang (Masters Hall Of Fame) for her action role in 'Weapon of Choice'.
She started writing at a young age, handwriting her first novel in the 5th grade. But it wasn't until college that she discovered screenwriting.
Kelly found acting when she was cast as a mermaid in Peter Pan through a summer conservatory. She continued theater through college, where she became addicted to film acting.
With a lens hovering inches from the actor's face, there is nothing they can hide. They must bare their soul to the world in a belly-up, honest vulnerability that few will ever experience.
Just this year Kelly has auditioned into the MASTER CLASS at Anthony Meindl's Studio and additionally studies with Annie Grindlay and Ani Avetyan.
In 2016 Kelly wrote, co-directed and starred in 'Carrion Comfort', a short film derived from the feature-length script she wrote that premiered at Sydney's Lift-Off Film Festival.
