    Actor Bio
    STELLA VELON IS AN AWARD-WINNING ACTRESS, WRITER, AND DIRECTOR BASED IN LOS ANGELES.
     
    Stella most recently made her directorial debut with the critically-acclaimed and multi-award winning short drama 'The Critic'.
     
    Focused on personal and visceral storytelling, Velon garnered stellar reviews for her work on the film as a performer, writer, and director. Since its launch at the 2018 Boston Film Festival, 'The Critic' has won over 20 festival awards, including one of the four First Prizes at Amazon Studios' inaugural 2019 All Voices Film Festival (judged by the co-Head of Movies at Amazon Studios Julie Rapaport, Head of Diversity at Amazon Studios Latasha Gillespie, and Founder and CEO of IMDb Col Needham), the coveted Best Director prize at the 2018 UK Film Review Awards (in the company of Oscar-winning heavyweights such as Alfonso Cuaron's 'Roma' and Bradley Cooper's 'A Star Is Born'), Best Short Film at the 2019 Method Fest, Best Actress & Annual Grand Jury Prize at the Queen Palm International Film Festival (alongside 2019 Emmy-winning documentary 'Crime + Punishment') and also became Indie Shorts Mag's Editor's Pick "The Best Of All, From 2018!".
     
    UK Film Review described Stella's portrayal of the main character of the Actress as "one of the best leading performances of the year", and Indie Shorts Mag wrote: "From her writing & direction to acting, she has done it with such finesse, that it's a pity that we can't rate her any higher." 'The Critic' became "the first short to receive 5 stars" on the latter and was dubbed "a sublime piece of indie film magic" by One Film Fan, among other accolades.
     
    As a performer, Velon has appeared in film and TV shows such as 'Baskets' (FX), 'Men in Black 3', 'Gossip Girl' (CW), etc., and has trained at some of the most prestigious drama schools in Paris, New York, and Los Angeles.
    As a creator/screenwriter, she is currently working on a single-camera girl-powered dramedy series, inspired by her modeling years in New York City. The show is fully fleshed out and is in active development in collaboration with fashion super agent, and former president of JGK Inc., Jean Gabriel Kauss.
     
    Velon grew up obsessively watching Baz Luhrmann's 'Strictly Ballroom', and 'Romeo + Juliet' and her latest work as a filmmaker has been influenced by the likes of Christopher Nolan and Darren Aronofsky.
    Stella is perfectly bilingual (English/French), holds a Bachelor's degree in Business Management from the University of Paris X, and is a member of SAG-AFTRA and the Alliance of Women Directors.
