Charla Marie Bailey was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. She has three adult children, three grandchildren, and lives with her husband and their rescue dog.
Charla Marie has been acting for over twenty-five years with experience on stage and film. She is looking forward to all the challenges, experiences and bountiful knowledge that comes with being an artist.
Being no stranger to the film industry but certainly learning more behind the scenes, Charla Marie is also a novice filmmaker. She made two films under Passion & Purpose Films and won awards for both. One being Strong Female Filmmaker!
A few of her favorite moments were playing 3 characters in 75 minutes, it was exhilarating! Playing the bucket list role of Lena Younger in A Raisin in the Sun and and having two movies on Amazon Prime: Black in Minneapolis and Miles Between US.
When Charla Marie is not acting she enjoys working with her hands. If it is broken, she can more than likely fix it, or she broke it so she can fix it, and see how it works. She also enjoys writing short plays and films.
