Born and raised in Vancouver, BC Canada, Carlena Britch’s first artistic love was dance. She has performed in music videos, onstage and traveled the world with artists such as Prince, Usher, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys, Pharrell Williams, Jason Derulo, Ne-Yo, J-Lo and Zendaya.
Some of her feature films include ‘Opening Night’, ‘Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping’, ‘Justin Bieber’s BELIEVE’, Nickelodeon: Rags’, and ‘Disney’s Camp Rock 2’. Each week you can catch Carlena in her recurring role on Paramount Network’s emmy-nominated ‘Lip Sync Battle’, as well as national commercials for brands such as ‘Target’, ‘Sprint’, ‘Crocs’, and ‘Old Navy’, to name a few. She was also a top 14 finalist on ‘So You Think You Can Dance Canada’ in Season 4.
In addition to her dance achievements, Carlena has choreographed for artists like Tori Kelly, Leann Rimes, and Ella Henderson, as well as national commercials for brands such as ‘Axe’, ‘Covergirl’, and ‘JC Penny’.
With her constant desire to grow and evolve, Carlena now makes a living as an actress, working in film, television and commercials. You can catch her as the sassy, sarcastic angel, “Miriam” on the hit CW show ‘Supernatural’, and as the villainous avenger “Juliet” on FOX’s legendary show ‘The X-Files’, as well as “Fauna” in the psychological thriller ‘Stillwater’, currently on iTunes and Amazon Prime.
Carlena has resided in Los Angeles, California for over 6 years now, and spends her free time mentoring young girls through ‘Big Brothers Big Sisters’ and volunteering for ‘Foster Care Counts’. She’s a frequent guest speaker and mentor at the ‘Sick Kids Hospital’ in Toronto, and absolutely adores working with children and young adults, especially through artistic platforms.
