Esme Perez is a fluent Spanish speaking Chicago born actor, musician, and story teller. Her love for the arts has always shined through since the tender age of 7, when she realized that the stage is what felt like home to her.
Originally from the North-West side of Chicago, Esme found her love in acting with the gentle push of her mother. Who with tremendous hard work and love, put Esme through countless classes/boot camps and workshops that allowed her to see the beautiful world of storytelling. Growing up as an only child raised by a single mother, Esme found exciting new adventures through her imagination. Constantly looking to cultivate her craft Esme loves to take acting classes, workshops, camps and anything that involves anything with her love to tell a story.
Her dedicated hard work is very evident as seen in her past few works, including “The Realm” seen portraying Kansas (Principal) at The Side Project Theatre, “Strangest Things! The Musical: REMOUNT” seen portraying Eleven (Ensemble) at The Greenhouse Theatre and “Chicago Med: Episode 02020” (Generation Gap) with NBC.
Esme's favorite part about doing what she does is finding a script that tells a true gritting story. She is proud and excited to say that she recently filmed her first Feature Film with a principal role alongside David Dastmalchian and Kevin Pollak.
A graduate of Lane Tech High School, Esme is currently taking a gap year to focus on building her resume with new classes, workshops and opportunities! Esme is extremely excited to start school with a focus on theatre and entertainment business.
