"Clarissa was a pleasure to work with and realized a magnificent performance in the role of Irina (Arkadina). Her professionalism and commitment were exemplary. She is a fiercely intelligent actor with a wonderful capacity for emotional truth.“

Paul Takacs, Director of "THE SEAGULL"

After being in LA for just a month I've been cast in 4 short films! Isn't that incredible?! One of them is called TALE OF MADNESS with a beautiful script by the talented filmmaker Thomas G. Monstellato from France. I'm playing a tough detective who interrogates God. Very intesting, I tell you! I'll keep you posted regarding the screening.

I'm excited to tell you about my infomercial shoot for SIMPLISAFE with the Oscar winning director Robert D. Port. The first Oscar winning director I've worked with! This can happen only in Los Angeles. In the picture I was posing in my special agent outfit with the executive Producer Chris Strand. Life is good!
