Celeste Sully moved to Los Angeles to seek acting success.
Ironically, she co-stars in Netflix’s 1BR about a young woman, who seeks an apartment in Los Angeles.
Born and raised in Chicago, Sully is a method trained actor under the tutelage of Tony Greco. She graduated with a degree in biology and played Division I basketball at Lindsey Wilson College. Since moving to Los Angeles, she worked in television, film, commercials, and print. Some of her campaigns included Subway, National Car Rental, Nike, Dasani, CB2, and most recently with Kenra Professional’s Forward Momentum campaign.
As a biracial actress (Afro/Indo Guyanese mother and Irish/German father), she understands of utilizing her career as a platform for change. Recently, she was appointed as the head of membership and outreach for Caribena Creatives, an organization focused on stories and history of the Caribbean diaspora. Also, she is an active member of Women of Color Filmmakers (WOCF), an organization focused on supporting minority female filmmakers.
