Djaka Souaré

I'm a French & West African actress, born and raised in Paris, France. I started my career in theater at a young age and have extensive stage experience - having worked at prestigious theaters in Paris and Off-Broadway in New York.

I transitioned to Film & TV and recently starred in HULU's episode of "Black Stories Present: Imagine a Moon Colony", directed by Phillip Youmans, TriBeCa 2019 Award winner, in the short film "Words" with Nicholas Pinnock, and in "Nairobi", produced by Solange Knowles.

I'm new to WeAudition but looking forward to connecting with actors! I can help with coaching and reading in French, British, or West-African accents!
I speak English, French and Spanish fluently.

I am also a writer-director; my short film "Jazz in Wakanda", was selected at renowned film festivals like Urban World, Nitehawk shorts, NY African Film Festival & NewFilmmakers Los Angeles. I just wrapped my second short film as a director, a comedy shot with an all-female identifying crew and cast, put together over a weekend for the LA Women's Weekend Film Challenge.

I used to work as a producer at Goldcrest & Saboteur Media in both documentary & narrative films, overseeing projects from financing to casting.

I'm on djakasouare@gmail.com - if you want to fix up a time in advance.
