The Power of Storytelling.

As an actress & creator, I take pride in bringing game-changing stories to life in a time where they’re more important than ever. Today, after thirteen years in the game, the synergy between the woman I am and the characters & stories assigned to come through me is in full overflow mode. I’m excited to continue to explore my actor muscle in new ways and break new ground with my one-of-a-kind production banner, CREATIVE SPIRITS ONLY. And especially grateful to be supported by Women in Film’s 2019 Actor-Content Creator Mentorship program under the guidance of Marvel casting director Sarah Finn & producer Melanie Donkers. Stay tuned.

“A natural. Kaira’s going to be a star. For sure.”
ROGER EBERT, FILM CRITIC

”Most actors can’t create an original character. Kaira is one.”
CHASE PARIS, FELDSTEIN/PARIS CASTING

/

"Kaira Akita was a pleasure to work with. She has a natural grace and elegance on screen that can't be taught. She takes direction very well, integrating notes and taking them to another level by coming up with something totally original. I have no doubt that we will be hearing a lot from Kaira over the next few years as both actor and creator. I look forward to working with her on set real soon.”

“You go to a place of raw vulnerability that most won’t and can’t do. Thank you Kaira for giving so much Truth to this piece. Grateful the world gets to experience this story through you.”

DIAHNNA NICOLE BAXTER,
WRITER/DIRECTOR (Epigenetics)

“From a storytelling perspective...A Rose Called Candace has masterful direction from Kaira Akita. If this was your first time directing Kaira,
it better not be your last!”
SHAAN DASANI, ACTOR/FILMMAKER

“A Rose Called Candace is an inspiring and brave piece of theatre.”
ANDREW LYNFORD, CASTING DIRECTOR
(Center Theatre Group)

“Kaira has that rare mix of creativity, leadership, and wisdom that serves her as a producer, director, writer, and talent. She is able to access right and left brain roles equally well and because of that makes complex projects come to life. Kaira is a gift. I see her as a humanitarian artist with a unique point of view and a voice that must be heard. I cannot recommend her enough as a talent and as a compassionate, whip smart, creative human being here to wake up the world through her art.”

CHRISTINA DUNBAR, STORYTELLER/DIRECTOR/PRODUCER (Dirty Me Divine, She Takes the Stage)

"I saw you on TV & I said, she's a star.
I'm going to work with her one day."
NIECY NASH, ACTRESS
(When They See Us, Claws, Getting On)
