Endlessly inspired by craft, storytelling, and opportunities to "live the life" of our characters
as we find them within ourselves.
Although early NYC training at the historic Herbert Berghof and Uta Hagen studio instilled a never-ending passion for acting; it was the beauty and journeys of persons through stories or my imagination, that occupied most of my days as a child. Intensive on-camera training brought depth, impact, and richness to my tool box opening a bolder and more powerful lens from which to communicate these worlds. My website traces some history and current happenings on-camera and on stage, and of course a way to be in touch.

"Carla Lewis ... begins as the Duchess of Gloucester and her scene is brilliantly played. .. there is a sensitivity in her playing that is simply matchless. She then morphs into Northumberland whose strength and sincerity Lewis brings forward beautifully."

"...professionals in the cast offering powerful performances are... Carla Lewis doubling as the Duchess of Gloucester and the Earl of Northumberland. Anderson, Legg, TAMIR and Lewis are the anchors of this production..."

"Validating Bridge Street's credentials is the thrilling new play 'Better,' which is currently being given a near-flawless production at its intimate Catskill venue... Benefiting most from the pace of the play is Carla Lewis, as Luisa, who trains Emily at the fondue restaurant. Her character grows on you throughout the play. She is gently comic, inherently wise and a perfect surrogate mother for Emily."
