Kaija Pellinen


Hi, my name is Kaija (kai-ya) and I'm an Actor.


Where do you start? If there's one thing I believe, it's that art has the power to change perception, to change the world, and to change your mind. 

I did my first show at 9 years-old, and haven't looked back since. I studied Theatre at the Perpich Center for Arts Education, hold a BS in Theatre Arts from Minnesota State University, Mankato, and have worked as a professional film and theatre actor since 2010.

In 2016 I received my MA in Classical and Contemporary Text (Acting) from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. During my studies in the UK I performed in scenes from As You Like It at the Globe Theatre and was a member of the premiere cast of Douglas Maxwell's The Caddie. 

Performers have the ability to show truth onstage or on film, and remind people what humanity is.

"Acting is not about being famous, it's about exploring the human soul.

- annette benning


Whether it's film, musical theatre, new work, or Shakespeare, I'm all about creating interesting characters. I've done some ingenue work, some characters, some background. As my dad likes to say: "I'll try anything twice."


If you've got something interesting send it my way!
