Testimonials

"Lena is an exceptional actor with an idiosyncratic delivery of text that is always honest and frequently surprising."

- Justin Hay (Toronto Shakespeare Workshop)

"We had such a great time working with Lena. It's always such a pleasure working with a talented actress such as her".

- Vincenzo Bertillo & Shehrezade Mian (Good Omen Films)

"Lena arrived and brought a great enthusiastic spirit. Her easygoing and warm disposition got us off to a great start, but it was soon clear that Lena was a serious and committed to making the shoot work for everyone. Can’t ask for more from a model and the bonus that she is naturally beautiful with very engaging eyes is real icing on the cake.".
