KAYLA BENNETT

is a New York based actor born and raised in the Bronx. Her love for acting grew in high school with Epic Theater Ensemble, where she learned how Shakespeare's language could be used as a tool to help tell the stories that she and her friends thought were important for the community to hear. Kayla graduated with her B.A in theater from SUNY Buffalo State College in 2019. In college, she played Raylynn in BLOOD AT THE ROOT by Dominique Morisseau at the Paul Robeson Theater in Buffalo, NY. Once she moved back to New York City, Kayla ventured out into the film world. She has done a digital book promo commercial for Hadiatou Wann's new children's book The Power of Dua and made her short film debut as Benvolio in the Romeo and Juliet Short film, directed by Michelle Beck in collaboration with Epic Theatre Ensemble. Her most recent credits include Sanaa in GENERATION RISE, directed by Sara Zatz and Kirya Traber at the New Victory Theater and her voice acting debut as Kallidike in LIVE FROM MOUNT OLYMPUS, directed by Rachel Chavkin and Keenan Tyler Oliphant. Kayla understands her power as a storyteller, she wants to continue to tell stories that shed light on black experiences.
