Award-Winning Actress Keyna Reynolds was born and raised in Huntington Woods, Michigan, and is named after her maternal grandmother.
She graduated with high honors from Michigan State University with a degree in Mathematics and a specialization in Physics. She obtained a visa to work as an Actuary at Lloyd's of London less than five years after graduating. She became inspired by theatre, along with the art of acting, while living in London. Her first audition was for the musical theatre production of 'Crazy For You' with the Sainsbury Singers in Reading, England. She was thrilled to land the role of a Ziegfeld Follies Girl and had the opportunity to showcase her love of dancing. While working on this production, she began private acting coaching with Cheryl Kennedy at Guildford School of Acting.
Shortly after studying with her, Keyna got a scholarship to obtain her Masters In Acting from East 15 Acting School, which is part of the Conference of Drama Schools in the United Kingdom.
While in the UK she had the opportunity to perform on the BBC, at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and tour the entire country with various theatre groups. Her favorite experience while on the road was being a part of the world renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Upon her return stateside, she lived in New York City, where she performed on Broadway at Theatre Row and appeared on 'As The World Turns', one of the longest running soap operas at the time.
More recently Keyna has been focusing on a career in screen acting, with two National Television appearances. Most notably the lead role of Michelle Dickson in the series 'Murder Decoded'. The feature film 'Faith Under Fire', secured a distribution deal with Universal and will receive a limited theatrical release later this year. Also coming this year, 'New Providence', the story of the final year (1993) of the iconic sport of Iowa six-on-six girls’ basketball and the end of a beloved, nearly one hundred year old basketball tradition in which she plays the coach, Teresa.
She is excited to have worked on several feature films starring Danny Trejo, Dean Cain, and Kevin Sorbo.
