Known for being the home of the tango, Manu Ginobili and Lionel Messi, Argentina is quickly becoming a hub for some of the hottest and most talented entertainers in the industry today. Could Argentine triple-threat Carolina Levi be it’s next star?
Levi, an Argentinian actress, model and comedienne that we have seen in many TV and film projects, starred in the Electrick Jukebox commercial with Robbie Williams, on the Argentinian movie “My love or my passion” with Adrian Suar and Julieta Diaz directed by Marcos Carnevale between many others.
On the big screen, we will see he next proposing to the actor Jaime Camil (Jane the Virgin) on the feature “Madness on the Method” and in a new film that is currently shooting with one of the most big Hollywood directors. Carolina is currently the lead actress on the Pantene Rosa commercial to prevent breast cancer that won 3 gold Lyons in Cannes.
Levi decided go for her career as an actress, even when her family didn’t support her at the beginning. Like most of the family, Carolina’s destiny was to be doctor, lawyer or architect.. because of why she started acting as a game, but years after, that game became her career, a successful carrier. Levi always needed to express herself without being judged.
The first art she discovered was painting, something she continue doing for years. Later, she graduated from the Architecture university in Argentina as an interior designer, but one day, when she was working on a project for a new restaurant, she realized that even though she loved her work, that wasn’t her real passion.
One day as a teenager, a very recognized photographer friend ask her to model for one print photo shoot. And from then she started doing commercials, studying improvisation and later drama. Step by step, she was discovering that world and industry until she fall in love with it.
She started acting in short films and plays (that’s was when she fall in love) and later on she had the opportunity to work on a TV show and from then she started working on features films. Carolina had worked with some of the most recognized international brands as Apple, Cadillac, Pantene, Head & Shoulders, Gillette, Sprite, Chevrolet, Budweiser, Johnson & Johnson, Dove between others.
The successful carrier she was getting brought her to host a TV show for 3 years on the most seen and recognized TV channel in Argentina, Canal 13, between other projects.
She studied improvisation at Nora Moseinco and acting with Agustin Alezzo. During this process, she started dreaming on going to study to Stella Adler NYC, where for first time she had to act on a foreign language, English, After her experience at Stella Adler she decided that she have to go to work to USA but during her visa process she got offered to do a movie in Amsterdam. During her stay in Europe she performed on a couple of plays as well. Carolina loves theater and she said that “work live has magic that for me is priceless”
After, she finally moved to Los Angeles, where she studied at Second city and with the recognized acting coach Lesly Kahn (with who is is working currently).
Carolina has worked non-stop in Los Angeles in numerous movies, TV shows, commercials and even stand up comedy. This extraordinary actress goes farther and she produced her own film called “Chic & Chambray” where she lead as an actress.
Right now, it is on post production and will be in different film festivals. Is a fashion film with a touch of surrealism about an Argentinian comedian that moves to Los Angeles and is obsessed with success what is represented by hair. She starts a mission but get lost on the desert. Carolina is doing as well her first sculpture and is very passionate with fashion and photography, world that she belong as well (you can see that on her Instagram/social media @lacarolinalevi).
She would like to direct in the future, she feels inspired being in Los Angeles, as it has fed her as an artist and supported her with new projects she is currently developing.
On her free time, Carolina does yoga, meditation, kickboxing, cross fit, hiking, dance, rollerblading and when she have the chance she rides horses and practices snowboarding.
