Isabella Briggs

Class of 2022


Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Isabella Briggs knew at the very young age of 3 she wanted to be an actor. While watching Pirates of the Caribbean with her family, she looked up at Keira Knightly, said “I want to do that”, and ever since then has dedicated herself to perfecting her craft. Picking up the camera at a very young age, Isabella would record skits and create short films that she would excitedly premiere to her family and friends (whether or not they actually wanted to watch them). Since then, her creative endeavors have led her to write and direct her own short film, “Family Night”, direct the new work “Where The Silent Sky Speaks” on stage, co create a performative movement piece titled “Don’t Fence Me In”, about her experience as a biracial woman, help devise a show for CMU School of Drama titled “In my Dreams”, and collaborate with many other creators on projects that she is passionate about. Isabella began working professionally when she was 6 years old in commercials for companies such as McDonald’s, Domino’s, Baby Chou Chou, KFC, Kellogg’s and many more. She debuted in her first film “After School” in 2014. Alongside acting, Isabella is extremely passionate about psychology and astrology. Forever a student in life, she hopes to one day create her own PhD combining them into their own practice. It is her love for and understanding of humanity that draws her to art and inspires her to create. No matter how old she is, the passion and fondness Isabella had for performance only 2 years after she learned to speak will never dwindle. She will continue to enjoy living in the worlds and stories she creates inside of her head and is so excited every chance she gets to share them with the world… or anyone who will listen.
