Trisha Molina is a Filipino-American actress based in Los Angeles, CA.

Originally from Manila, Philippines, she found her way to even sunnier Las Vegas, NV at the young age of 4-years-old. Trisha's love of the arts was evident from an early age and it would seem she was destined to make a career out of it. Her favorite games growing up always involved playing "pretend" and finding as many different ways as possible to tell a story (whether there was an audience or not). From there, she developed and cultivated her love of acting and all things film and television-related.

After receiving her BFA with a concentration in Screen Acting from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, she finally made the move to Los Angeles and has been hitting the pavement ever since. She currently studies with acting coach Shari Shaw, where she has seen a tremendous growth in her work, and strives to get as much hands-on experience as possible. Having grown up away from her cultural roots, she's found a way to reconnect by teaching herself how to speak her native language, Tagalog, again.

Her work can currently be seen in the short film "The Spirit Room" (2017), which has been making its rounds through the film festival circuit. It recently won an award and recognition at The 2017 Hollywood Moving Pictures Film Festival and The 2018 Silicon Beach Film Festival. She can also be seen in the upcoming short film "Shabu" (2018), which is making its way through festivals, and the upcoming feature film "12 Months" (2019).

In her free time, she loves hanging out with her dogs, going to amusement parks, perusing museums, and lounging on the beach. Trisha is also an avid lover of puzzles and anything that challenges her to work harder and better. She is of German, Chinese, Filipino, and Portuguese descent.
