Maria Proios is a Greek actress, known for her ability to portray tough and gritty female characters with a big heart, in both drama and comedy. She was born in Athens, Greece and has spent parts of her childhood both in Athens and the East Coast of the United States. Her artistic journey began with music at a very young age, and grew into the exploration of visual arts like rendering and photography. Her “nomadic” upbringing between two different cultures has given her a strong relatability and fascination for human behavior and the fun of portraying it. She currently resides in Los Angeles and continues her studies in theatre at the Beverly Hills Playhouse.
