About Margarita

I'm an experienced actor & model from Russia and I grew up in NYC. I've worked on my craft as an artist with improv, group scene study, and private coaching - still studying. Now I am full force pursuing my dreams.

My recent completed projects are a dark hypnotic, short film) that I am produced and starred in called "JONES" and I play a supporting character in Loaded Barrel Studio's award winning feature film "The Incoherents". Both of these projects can be found on the festival circuit. I just wrapped production on an indie musical feature film called "Triple Threat" where I play one of the lead roles.

I currently model mostly for NY Street wear and jewelry designers such as House Of Correria, Despierta, and No Service.

I'm always looking for new projects to be a part of in both the acting and modeling world, let's collaborate!

Unique traits: Fluent in Russian, Baby Velociraptor impression, YouTuber, Can And Will Sing Badly And Loudly.
