Up and coming actress, producer, and screenwriter Lilinda Camaisa’s star is on the rise. She will make her feature film acting debut in the indie pic “The Samuel Project,” opening in New York City on Sept 28, and then in select markets nationwide by distributor in8 Releasing.
Camaisa plays a supporting role as Dr. Jamir alongside leading men Hal Linden and Ryan Ochoa. The film was directed by Marc Fusco and written by Fusco and Chris Neighbors. The pics centers on a teen (Ochoa) who, through a school art project, gets to know his grandfather Samuel (Linden), and discovers that he was rescued from Nazi capture as a young boy.
It was her first audition for a high school play, where Lilinda would discover she had a natural talent and passion for acting — she landed the part AND was eventually voted “Best Actor” in the play by her peers.Unfortunately, after high school, Lilinda’s aspirations did not match her parents’ expectations. In an effort to appease her parents, she began her educational journey to becoming a lawyer. When she finally attended law school, she quit after her first year, after a law professor urged her to follow her heart and pursue a career in acting.
From then on, Lilinda has pursued acting wholeheartedly — studying acting at the prestigious Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, and with Carey Scott at The Rehearsal Room Acting School. “I took some time away from acting to raise my family and am very excited to get back to what I love,” states Camaisa, “and am excited to be apart of this incredible story.
Her past work includes executive producer on the short film, “Forgotten” (2016) that received four awards for best short film at the Chandler International Film Festival (2016), CIFF award for best experiment short, and an award of merit special mention at the Indie Fest USA International Film Festival (2016).
