Alexia Charalambidou

After graduating from Vladimiros Kafkarides Drama School in Cyprus (2002), she continued her Drama studies at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York. She worked both in New York and Cyprus with several theatre and independent film productions. She was the lead actress in the award-winning short film “ Lullaby of the butterfly” by Tonia Michali and took part in other short and feature films like “Family member”, “Senior Citizen”, “Aishe goes on vacation”, Dead End” and “Blind Passions”.

She always had a passion for writing and after the shootings of a pilot episode for a TV series that she wrote, she decided to go on the writing path more professionally and took scriptwriting classes for two years (2015-2017). Professionally she was asked to write the script for a bi-communal children’s puppet show, a TV comedy movie, and the pilot episode for a comedy series. Currently, she is writing her own comedy/fantasy series that will be ready soon for the market.
