The Actor

If you’re here, it means you’re either a friend, a fan or someone in the entertainment industry, that I may or may not have worked with.

To all, a warm hello beautiful and thanks for doing the leg work to find me.

If you’re looking to have a truly collaborative experience, please continue to parses my website and get a feel for my flow (and many looks) #blackgirlmagic.

I’m grateful to be at a place in my career where I’m out of my head and operating on instinct and to have control over my craft. My goal is to always create an environment where neither time nor talent is wasted.

A LOOK AT MY WORK

When it comes to the business side of things, I take it all with a grain of salt. It’s not always about the money, but I do believe in equal pay for equal work.

And regardless of what number on the call sheet I am, or how big the star I’m opposite is, I don’t believe in attitude. I simply appreciate working with good people.

You only have to do a play or be on set once to notice that there’s a lot going on behind the scene. Which is why I try to be the easiest part of anyone’s day.

Even if you book me at the last minute (and I’m talking the night before, kind of last minute and my character has all the talky-talky-jargon), I stay calm, focused and 99.9% of the time my short-term memory never fails me.

Here’s what people say working with me is like.

Lisa’s approach isn’t just about finding the right objective and actions for each scene, it also included developing a healthy mindset for dealing with the day to day pressures of being a lead on the stage or set.

Lisa mindfulness and work ethic have brought her success in all areas of her life- her work on stage and on screen, and most importantly, in the beautiful relationships, she fosters. She shares her energy and wisdom with those fortunate to be around her. And does it all with endless amounts of drive, creativity, passion, and ultimately, gratitude. I feel a better person when I’m in her company.

Lisa Berry is an actress unlike any other that I have met. She radiates with confidence, enthusiasm, and passion for her craft. She leaves you feeling better and fuller as an actor and as a person after working with her. I’ve found her brand of positivity and optimism to be a rare and welcomed gem in this industry of film/TV.

Right Quote
Lisa is one of the kindest and positive people I have worked with. As a coach, she creates a safe environment where I can fully liberate and lose myself in my craft; I know she will always ground me back down. She has a strength and energy that radiates and is infectious when working with her. Lisa is extremely passionate about the work and is willing to push the actor to their fullest potential in nothing but a loving, supportive, and patient way.

“An artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times.” – Nina Simone

As an artist of colour, I’m mindful to the roles I choose, because while I don’t believe in judgind a character, my community needs representation that also educates, uplifts and motivates.
