Hey there, I’m Genesis Ilada. I’m an actor working and living in Los Angeles.
I’ve always been fascinated in telling stories. Being a minority, transgender woman of color, it is important for me as an actress to express stories which are relevant and authentic in today’s modern and convoluted world. I am moved by tales of strong and powerful characters who we can cry and laugh with. Someone we could despise, witness struggle and be triumphant. On my spare time, I volunteer by plogging which is picking up litter while hiking.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.

At a young age I started acting in school plays until my college days in the Philippines. My Filipino roots uncovered the magic of entertainment and how it makes an audience learn from and be affected by relatable slices of life.
