Strong but vulnerable, this versatile actress caught the eye of Big Little Lies director Jean-Marc Vallée, landing her a role on the Oscar nominated film Wild.
After playing the tough and crude Trudy in dark comedy Rid Of Me (Tribeca Film Festival’s official selection & NY Times Critics Pick), Orianna was singled out in The Hollywood Reporter’s Oscar Watch List for Best Supporting Actress.
Beyond her film work Orianna has Guest Starred on TNT’s The Librarians sharing scenes with Noah Wyle and Rebecca Romijn, NBC’s GRIMM and TNT’s Leverage opposite the great Aldis Hodge (Hidden Figures, Straight Outta Compton, Underground). She also had the honor of working with the brilliant Nathan Lane and John Travolta on the FX hit American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson.
On stage, Orianna fiercely brought her well honed skills to a 3 year tour of theater festival favorite Disinformation starring the hilarious Reggie Watts (The Late Late Night Show with James Corden and Comedy Bang! Bang!)
In tandem with her work as an actor Orianna is also the lead singer for pop-cinema project: Pramillo.
“Even though the tough and mean character of Trudy has been done over and over again, Orianna manages to show a sweet side and make her more of a person rather than a caricature.”
