EDNA LEE FIGUEROA

I'm a Theater, Film, TV and Voice Over New York based actress born in Humacao, Puerto Rico on September 26th which it makes me a Libra. I moved from Puerto Rico to North Carolina, where I worked with Burning Coal Theatre Company for 2 years until I moved to New York in 2009.

As soon as I set foot in NYC I began working with Boundless Theatre Company and Teatro Círculo (Associate Artist & Production Staff). I'm also a member of Repertorio Español and Pop Up Theatrics, and a Theater Producer: "Tic Tac Toe the3some" by Joselo Arroyo, "Cock" by Mike Bartlett (co-produced with Kayros Theatre Group), "La terapia" by Txemi Parra, "Máscaras afuera" by Joselo Arroyo and "Santa Bárbara is a Femme Fatale" by Camila Monclova and Mariana Monclova (co-produced with Producciones el Barrio).

I hold a BA in Theater from the University of Puerto Rico and a MA in Arts Administration from Turabo University. I lived my years in the University of Puerto Rico between the Travelling Theatres directed by Dean Zayas and Rosa Luisa Márquez. I began working in professional theatre since college and continue until this day. Some theatre companies with whom I had collaborated in Puerto Rico: Deikélestai (co-founder), Cuarzo Blanco, Contraparte, Alfonsina, and El Secreto Mundo, among many others.

I carry experiences in my backpack of over 40 plays, series, sitcoms and movies for television, films and voice over. To summarize, I have 23 years as a professional actress in my hands. I'm a SAG-AFTRA and Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors member. 

I'm a grammar freak, a translation geek, an editing and adaptation nerd. I do not stop; I rest sometimes to regain strength. I was born for acting and I will do it until the day I die.
