Contact Us about Vanessa:


Vanessa Bontea is a sweet, wildly intuitive, multi-ethnic actress with a serious passion for international cuisine and stationery. She’s half Asian, so she’s got the straight-A, Kung Fu fighting, hard working,
over-achiever thing down. But she’s also from Queens, which means she has an inner toughness and street smarts that not only got her through New York City’s public schools, but is also reflected in the characters she plays.

When Vanessa isn’t acting, she’s writing. She has written every
single morning in her journal for the past 5 years. But don’t let her
youthfulness and innocence fool you. She trains in martial arts,
stunts and fighting for film and television - working in independent martial arts films and series.  She is currently training with Demetrius
Angelo (NYC Action Actors Academy) and Master James Lew (stunt and fight coordinator of Netflix’s Luke Cage).

Her spirit animal is a tiger. A tiger represents yin/yang, psychic ability, softness but edginess and deep inner wisdom. A tiger can be nurturing, but also, a predator. Vanessa has earned her “stripes” and she’s ready to take everything to the next level.
