Carmela Ramaglia has been acting professionally for nearly 30 years. She was first “discovered” while roaming the streets of Florence, Italy. Upon her return to the US, she immediately signed with a talent agency and began to book nearly every commercial for which she auditioned. Thinking that “beginners luck” would only take her so far, Carmela embarked on a long course of study to hone her skills.
Carmela studied at the renown Freehold Theatre, Seattle Actor’s Lab, Northwest Actor’s Studio and Belltown Theatre Center. A graduate of the Meisner Actor’s Training Program and a resident artist at the award winning Belltown Theatre Center, Carmela co-founded the Tenderfoote Theater Company. During her tenure at Belltown, she co-produced and co-starred in several productions – most notably John Patrick Shanley’s Savage in Limbo.
Being of Italian heritage, Carmela returns to Italy often. Her favorite audition story is of a campaign for a European soft drink. Auditions were held outside Florence and the room was filled with actors and models from all over Europe. Carmela was the only American there. Ironically, when the director saw her he immediately dismissed her exclaiming that she looked “too Italian.”
Today, Carmela focuses her energies on film work and has ventured into screen writing and producing.
