Rebbekah Vega-Romero

Rebbekah Vega-Romero is a New York City native, a true Gryffindor, a proud member of Actor's Equity, and a triracial Latina bruja. A YoungArts award-winning writer, Rebbekah graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor’s in English Literature and Theatre Arts. Rebbekah has a wide-ranging career as an actress, most recently wowing Seattle audiences with her "luminous" portrayal of Maria in “West Side Story” at the 5th Avenue Theatre. She is the writer and star of the upcoming short films, “The Question,” and “Ring of Fire.” While theatre is on pause, Rebbekah has launched a virtual tarot practice (Ruby’s Realm Tarot) and commenced work on her first book of poetry and photos, entitled El Amor and Other Drugs. Most recently, her poetry has been featured in The Quaranzine Zine. Rebbekah hopes her work will inspire other mixed-race girls to realize that “there’s a place for us.” Visit her virtually at www.RebbekahVegaRomero.com or on social media @RebbekahVR.
