Liana Wright-Mark is a NY / LA based actor, model, dancer, book writer and more. Born and raised in NY, Liana will always be a native New Yorker; but now, in 2022, she is starting to explore her life and career equally as much on the west coast.
A proud member of SAG-AFTRA, Liana landed her first role in the 2018 feature film, Oceans 8 starring Sandra Bullock. She has since worked alongside Stephen Lang in Paper Street Pictures' new thriller directed by Lucky McKee, Old Man, coming out this Fall 2022.
For the last five years, Liana has focused her energy greatly in the commercial modeling world working with brands such JBL Speakers, Lancóme, Door Dash, Budweiser, W Hotels, Conair, LÓreal Paris, AS98, Rollie Nation and many more. Being in front of the camera is truly where she thrives. Having grown up in the dance competition circuit, Liana expresses herself greatly through movement and flowing through poses with intention. (I'll always be a dancer first...)
A graduate of Pace University's BFA Musical Theater program, Liana has the training and the passion for the stage that she'll bring with her into every room and on to every set. During Liana's studies at Pace, she had the incredible opportunity of working with Broadway legends such as Tony-winner Adam Guettel, Lonny Price, Graciela Daniele and Lea Salonga. Her senior year she had the honor of playing Harper Pitt in Angels in America under the direction of JV Mercanti, a role that she favors to date.
Under the direction of Ryan Scott Oliver at Pace University, Liana and her writing partner, Jamen Nanthankumar, authored the new musical Elise, which has been produced off-Broadway. Liana was the recipient of "Best Book in a Musical" award and overall, Elise took home "Best Musical" at Planet Connections Theater Awards in 2015. Jamen and Liana are currently working on rewrites of Elise with the goal to have it workshopped and produced in the near future.
