Maya Nalli is a queer multiracial actress who grew up in Northern Virginia. She began taking dance classes at age 3, which quickly became her passion. Growing up, she had a great love for the arts. She danced competitively, sang in choruses and small ensembles, and participated in school plays and acting camps.
In 2013, Maya graduated Summa Cum Laude from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelors in Strategic Advertising. After a few years working in digital marketing and some time living in Los Angeles, the arts began to call her back. Since knee problems made it difficult to dance consistently, she began dabbling in acting again.
Maya is now a full time actress in Los Angeles! She has acted in many independent feature length and short films, but made her Network Television debut on Black-ish in 2021. Since then, she has worked on television shows such as Dollface, The Dropout, The Upshaws, and ABC pilot Black Don't Crack. She is an active member of the improv community at Upright Citizens Brigade, receiving a Diversity Scholarship and being accepted into their Academy Training Program.
