Michelle Lamelza was raised in Philly with her identical twin sister and older brother. Michelle has always had a passion for acting and obtained a BA degree in Theatre Arts from East Carolina University, NC, with a minor in Exercise & Sport Science. Work ended up transferring Michelle to Myrtle Beach, SC. As much as she loved the beach, she had decided it was best to go where all of the action was, she relocated to NYC.

After acting as the manager for Hooters for several years, she left to find a more flexible job so she could spend more time acting. She has appeared independent films such as, “The Project”, “Ascot Alley”, and most recently "After the Torment", where she plays Sydney. Both "Ascot Alley" and "After The Torment" had granted her various "Best Actress" nominations, as well as screenings at various festivals across the U.S.

In addition to all of this, she was cast as Lisa in Brandon in the feature "Trial by Self." Michelle is so excited to be a part of Shabazz Ray’s “The Long Short”. She plays the role of Barbara, a single mother struggling with her past and her present. Go here to to Michelle’s iMDB to find out more.
