Jessika Lawrence

Reads for free & accepts tips

Hi! My name is Jessika Lawrence. I am a LA-trained actor (currently living in Hawaii). My on-going coach is Laura Gardner (20yr+ veteran instructor of Howard Fine Studio in Los Angeles and working actor). I continue to train with her weekly via zoom (

I recently produced, wrote, directed, and played a lead role in my short film called Nuclear (see trailer at We've won one award so far and hoping for more. Having to cast my own film was an eye-opener for me to see just how much an actor nerves can get in the way of a good audition and sometimes how casting depends on compatibility. Having creative control over my film, I made a change in one character from a "husband" to a "wife," which resulted in a mixed-race, lesbian couple instead of a hetero-white couple. I had two great actresses who auditioned for "wife" and no suitable male counterpart for "husband." The dinner party scene was made even stronger because of it! I don't charge, but all tips go toward helping Nuclear recover its expenses.

This experience has helped me to let go of expectations and have fun in the audition room... at the end of the day, everyone wants to work with someone they enjoy. So I try to have fun and fully memorized so I "play" with adjustments the casting directors ask for. I'm often on We Audition to keep in constant play reacting to others, helping others with their work and getting myself off book for my own work.

Feel free to reach out to schedule a time just remember the time difference (we are earlier!):
