Growing Up and Giving Back - Seanna Pereira reaches new audiences
Growing Up and Giving Back - Teen Performer Seanna Pereira reaches new audiences with her acting, singing, and philanthropy
Now, imagine doing all those things by the age of 14 – that's Seanna Pereira. From landing her first movie role at age five, to learning how to speak Arabic in a day for a role, to changing lives through working with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, Seanna has accomplished more than some veterans two or three times her age. With the release of the upcoming suspense thriller "Dead Man Run," it seems like her remarkable journey is only just beginning.
Splitting her time between her native Florida and Los Angeles, Seanna's maturity and appeal as both an actor are singer have been evident to those who have been working with her. She held her own sharing scenes with Ron Perlman in the short suspense thriller "Elwood," and her latest director, Josi W. Konski, raves about her work in "Dead Man Run." Seanna's other credits include guest-starring on "24: Legacy" as the daughter of a suspected terrorist; headlining the horror film "Everglade,"
Equally passionate about music and acting, Seanna has also focused her time volunteering for events hosted by the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, particularly in children's hospitals, where she connects with young people facing daunting medical challenges. While awaiting the release of "Dean Man Run," Seanna is also in the process of recording new musical material (including several songs she co-wrote), and planning a "mini-tour" of ten hospitals in support of the Seacrest Foundation's mission.
With an maturity and charm that belies her years, Seanna continues to achieve her show business dreams, and discover new challenges to be conquered.
