I’m Christina DeRosa, and I love being an actress because there is no playing it small in acting and it’s like a game. Ever since I was a child, my favorite game was “make believe.” I would pretend I was a mom, a doctor, or teacher and now I’m lucky enough to play make believe on set with other incredible actors. We’re all really children at heart. It all started in NY on stage with Natalie Portman as munchkins in The Wizard of Oz, and now I live and work in Los Angeles but ready to travel anywhere that the work is. South East here I come.
I’ve been blessed to work onset of 'Sam & Cat', 'Hart of Dixie', 'Hollywood Heights', 'Worst Week', 'Everybody Hates Chris', '‘Reno 911!', 'Dollhouse', 'Entourage', 'The Whole Truth', '1000 Ways to Die' and 'General Hospital', work in multiple movies, and most recently I became a member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and won the "Artist in Cinema" award at Universal through the Artist in Music Awards.
I’m extremely proud of every network and cable show I’ve been on, every imdb credit, every role I played, all the talented stars I get to play with, but something you should know about me is I really strive to be a humanitarian who can leverage my career success to bring more awareness about children in need. What always brings me joy is looking at the picture of the 3 year old boy I sponsor in Vietnam.
Up next for me? I am an actress who believes the best way to create success is producing my own work so this is the year that I am going at it.
