Elena Campbell-Martínez is a bilingual Latina actress who recently worked with director Clint Eastwood on the feature film The 15:17 to Paris (opening February 2018) and the Starz series Vida (premiering May 2018). She also stars as Matilde in the webseries Couch Potato Chronicles (Season 2 coming soon).
Her passion for storytelling is in her DNA courtesy of her Mami from Guadalajara. Elena’s life took a winding path through management consulting, then volunteer social work in Antigua Guatemala, where she was reintroduced to her passion for theatre by the legendary Vera Gregh.
Since moving to LA, Elena has been busy with funny and bilingual guest appearances in popular TV comedies like Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory, as well as roles in theatre, film and web series. She also volunteers for The Blank Theater’s Living Room Series, which gives voice to new and underrepresented writers.
When she needs to take a breath and recharge her batteries, she hangs out with her very understanding husband Dennis (better known as Marc Maron’s next-door neighbor) and their family of three adorkable rescue pups (Baxter, Sarita and Dobbie).
