ZAILA L.S. Matthews


Zaila is a born and raised native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is of Italian, Spanish, Irish and Welsh decent. She discovered a passion for acting at 5 as an extra on a feature film set and began studying the craft at 7.

Early in her career she has been very successful doing student films and has landed lead and/or supporting roles in each. Frequently playing older characters because of her maturity, Zaila is comfortable with any genre but loves dramatic edgy roles and is extremely versatile from gritty, to emotional, to comical. She enjoys making her own special effects make up, has witty improvisation skills, and learns, retains, and interprets lines amazingly quick.
