Natalia Reyes

 A Colombian actress with ample experience in film, television, and theater, Natalia Reyes is emerging as one of the Latin actors of greatest international promise at the moment. Chosen to lead the film that continues the Terminator franchise produced by James Cameron and directed by Tim Miller, she was part of the cast of the Danish film Brakland (2018) by Martin Skovbjerg, co-starred in Pickpockets (2018) by British director Peter Webber, and is a lead in Birds of Passage (Pájaros de verano, 2018) by Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra, which is set to open the fiftieth Directors' Fortnight at Cannes.
 
Born in Bogotá on a February 6, she is a graduate of the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in New York. At the age of nine she entered Claraluna, a musical theater school where she spent seven years, recorded five albums, toured Colombia and the United States several times, and starred in several musicals. During her last two years in school she also studied at the DECA acting school. In 2002 she participated in the television program Popstars where she became a finalist.
 
She ventured into television in 2002, with the Canal Caracol productions Muñoz vale por dos, Bermúdez, and Las profesionales. In parallel to her work in television, she enrolled in Universidad Javeriana in 2004 to study audiovisual production. While studying for her undergraduate degree, she decided to move to the city of Buenos Aires to study the theater technique of máscara neutra with Marcelo Sauvignon and jazz at the Ricardo Rojas Cultural Center of University of Buenos Aires.
 
Since then she has enjoyed a prolific career in television, where one of her most outstanding roles was the lead in the successful Sony series Lady, la vendedora de rosas (2015) in which she played Lady Tabares, the main character-actress from Víctor Gaviria's seminal The Rose Seller (La vendedora de rosas). The role won her a nomination for Best Actress in the Colombian India Catalina Awards. This work along with her performances in Isa TK+ (2009) for Nickelodeon where she played Fabiana Medina, Cumbia Ninja (2013), and 2091 (2016) for Fox, have made her a familiar face in several Latin American countries.
 
In 2011 she played lesbian boxer Ana Lucia Giraldo in the series A mano limpia by RCN. She has had roles in the series Pandillas Guerra y Paz (2003), Mujeres asesinas (2016), El comandante (2017), and the soap opera La ley del corazón (2017).
 
The year 2011 also saw her finally graduate with a degree in audiovisual production and move to New York City with all her savings to fulfill her dream of studying at the prestigious Lee Strasberg school. There she starred in the web series Just Moved In by Clementine Cayrol and the film Chess by the French director Michel Cosma.
 
Her career in cinema—her major passion—began in 2009 with a starring role in the short film The Red Elephant, which won the Best Film and Best Director awards at the New York School of Visual Arts. She subsequently participated in the exquisite corpse Anthropos (2015) produced by Spiros Stathoulopoulos; Sumergible (in post-production) by Alfredo León León, produced by Sebastián Corder; and Nuestros Muertos by Jacques Toulemonde.
