Larissa Santiago is a professional actress and model from Fajardo, Puerto Rico. After a successful career in the local fashion industry, she moved to New York City to develop her acting craft and was coached by director Robert Ellermann and Paul Calderon, as part of the acting conservatory program at The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.
She started her career as a teenager in the fashion industry in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where she walked for renown local and international fashion designers such as Oscar de la Renta, Ágata Ruiz de la Prada, Custo Barcelona, and many others. Commercials and editorial shoots are her favorite, where she “disconnects” from real time to embody characters that speak to the story. Now in New York, she’s looking to take her modeling and acting career to the next step.
As an actress, she debuted on the Repertorio Español stage with the original production of the musical “La Cancion.”
