NATALIE – THE CASTING DIRECTOR
Moniqua Plante – Yep, that’s my name. It’s pronounced like Monica, not Shaniqua 🙂 I act, produce, create and occasionally do some fake fighting on-screen. Think of me as a ray of sunshine on the subway, the weather girl who makes the hurricane sound like fun or an ass-kicking assassin for hire. I was born and raised in San Francisco and started performing at an early age. After studying at The American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, I moved to LA where I’ve worked with Molly Shannon and John Michael Higgins on NBC’s ‘Kath & Kim’ and recurred on John Wells’ ‘Southland‘ with Michael Cudlitz and Benjamin McKenzie. Most recently I booked a guest lead on HBO/Cinemax’s anthology series, ‘Femme Fatales’. And I guest starred on Alan Ball’s new original series for HBO/Cinemax, ‘Banshee‘. I have to confess that I am most proud of my last two short films, Buttons in the Ground and Pillow Talk (Available on iTunes), which I also produced. Together they have garnered over 19 nominations, winning 12 awards thus far including four Best Actress Awards and Breakout Action Star for little ol’ me. WEBSITE
