BIOGRAPHY

Alyona Khmara is a Eurasian actress born and raised in Ukraine, residing in Los Angeles.

Years of dance training opened global opportunities for Alyona to work as a professional dancer in South Korea, China and India, where she performed in over a dozen Bollywood films. 

 

Alyona moved to Los Angeles in 2012 and studied the craft of acting at renowned studios like The Actors Room, Ivana Chubbuck, John Kirby and Stephanie Feury‘s Studios. Alyona has appeared in national commercials (IBM, Verizon and Volkswagen), booked a co-star role on a leading TV Show Ray Donovan and appeared in a number of short films and independent projects that received multiple festival awards. Among them the most recent foreign film "Mother of Chernobyl"- received Gold Award and best actress nomination for Alyona.

 

Fluent in Russian, Ukrainian, Spanish and American English, Alyona is constantly adding skills to stand out in this evolving market. With the reminiscence of the sweet sadness of Audrey Hepburn, but most importantly her unique-self, Alyona brings a strong camera presence, a natural authentic approach, creative in-depth character development, professionalism and European elegance, with the most important component -- a fun loving presence on the set.
