As a child, Lisann Valentin was enamored by Mrs. Huxtable (The Cosby Show), a strong woman and lawyer who spoke Spanish. Inspired, she declared to her family, “I want to do what she does!” and true to her words, she became an actress, and a lawyer.
Given her diverse background, Lisann is a bilingual film and television actress who plays smart and strong, yet caring characters. A passionate storyteller, she made her directorial debut with the short film Our Quiet Night (available on Roku). Her second short film Europeany is making the rounds on the film festival circuit.
Lisann writes about her journey, reinforcing the notion that it’s never too late for a second act in your life. A published author, you can read her story in the NY Times Best Seller, Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It, an anthology by Penguin Group.
