Begonya Plaza

Based in New York City

I am a New York based single mother and theatre artist with a foundation in acting and writing. I began acting at the age of nine, growing up in Hollywood, with occasional ventures between Colombia and Spain. Have worked with top television and film actors and directors such as, Walter Hill, Oliver Stone, Michael Mann, and Clint Eastwood. On stage, Philip Seymour Hoffman directed me in the original production of In Arabia We'd All be Kings, amongst other renown theatre makers including, Dan Lauria. My play, TERESA’S ECSTASY premiered at New York’s historical Cherry Lane Theatre, in 2012, in which I also acted. After many years living in Barcelona, initially there to star in a CBS television series, being surrounded by Catalán poets, and artists who knew Salvador Dalí, and shared their amusing anecdotes of rebellious escapades with me, I discovered a passion for writing PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY, and that unique Dalinian world as seen from the eyes of a young naïve American, getting sucked into an irresistible life of celebrity.
