Anissa Felix: A Journey of Artistry and Ambition

Anissa Felix

Introduction: Meet Anissa Felix

I’m Anissa Felix, a versatile actor gracing both Broadway and TV screens. You may recognize me from my recent stint in Netflix’s comedy sensation “Survival of the Thickest,” where I brought the vibrant character of India to life.

But my passion extends beyond acting—I’ve set my sights on TV writing and producing, crafting stories that captivate and inspire.

Embracing Diverse Narratives: Oh, Victoria!

While acting fuels my soul, my creative journey has led me to the realm of TV writing and producing. Enter “Oh, Victoria!,” a pilot that defies conventions with its blend of Historical Comedy Fantasy.

Set in 19th Century England, this audacious tale follows a Black insta-baddie and a Queer Latinx teen on a whirlwind adventure. It’s bold, it’s absurd, and it’s guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings.

Uniqueness in Diversity: Celebrating My Voice

What sets me apart in this bustling industry? It’s my unapologetic passion for history in all its forms. From domestic sagas to marginalized narratives, my storytelling is infused with a deep reverence for diversity and inclusion.

Drawing from my Caribbean upbringing and global travels, I weave tales that resonate across cultures, forging connections through shared experiences.

The Moment of Revelation: A Tony Tribute

Imagine the electric atmosphere of the TONY Awards stage, where I found myself immersed in the magic of “Donna Summer the Musical.” During rehearsals, I shared a poignant moment with my former mentors from the American Theatre Wing Springboard Program.

Our eyes met, silently acknowledging the journey that led us to that pinnacle of success. It was a moment of triumph, etched in my memory forever.

Confronting Adversity: A Testament to Resilience

The past three years have tested my resolve in ways I never imagined. From battling illness to navigating loss and self-doubt, the journey has been arduous. Yet, with the unwavering support of loved ones, I’ve emerged stronger and more determined than ever.

Through introspection and growth, I’ve reclaimed my health, discovered a newfound passion for writing, and embraced a renewed sense of confidence.

Dream Encounters: Aspiring to Greatness

In the pantheon of industry luminaries, three figures stand out as beacons of inspiration:

Issa Rae is the Showrunner/Producer/Writer of my dreams. I’ve been following her since her youtube series “Awkward Black Girl”, and her journey is what keeps me going. I’m trying to be like ISSA!

I would cry if I got styled by Law Roach. Because…he’s iconic.

And if Shonda Rhimes was ever looking for a goddaughter to bless her expertise with, she can always call me.
