About Me

Hi!  I'm originally from Michigan, a Motown girl at heart and loyal Detroit sports fan.  I know, my teams are currently rebuilding, but we are die-hard fans!  My family moved to Texas where I started off as a TV journalist, found a passion for acting then became a jack of all trades.  My creative endeavors not only had me working as a writer, reporter and video producer, but as a specialized bartender, floral designer, and professional Christmas decorator.  I'm one of eight children.  We are extremely close. When it comes to helping out friends and family...I'm there!  I love traveling, experiencing different foods, literature, music, but most of all hanging with my sibs where I usually end up being bartender at our family gatherings! 

Lourdes Regala has performed in film, network television, commercials, corporate films, and internet productions. Although she hails from the Midwest, her Asian

Pacific and Spanish background has cast her in many diverse roles.  Family commitments stalled her acting pursuits, but she came back rejuvenated by recently completing the short film, “Roling On”Written and directed by Stuart Wolpert (IMDB), it's a showcase of Lourdes' acting talent following her through a multitude of auditions trying to break Hollywood’s stereotype of ethnics. Her first scene introducing her as ”just a Midwestern girl from Detroit.” This landed her a lead in the film short," The Prophecy of  Skara Brae".  A delightful surprise was when a film clip for U2’s 2017 Joshua Tree World Tour Concert made the final cut in the stage film. It was presented during the performance of “One Tree Hill” where she proudly represents Native Americans. Other appearances have been on the ID Network in “Unusual Suspects” and “Choices”, an independent film which won the 2012 Cannes Best Film Award. She also had the pleasure of working in “Date Night” with Steve Carrell and Tina Fey. Lourdes has performed on stage in Los Angeles with the Group Repertory Theater in NoHo and with Drama West Productions. In LA she also landed a fun gig displaying her comedic side with a group of stand up comics performing sketches at The Comedy Store. As a journalist, television credits include real reporting jobs on WFAA-TV (ABC affiliate in Dallas) and cable TV, as well as appearances on “The Practice” and network TV movies/series. She has also been booked as a host/spokesperson for numerous corporate, industrial, and internet projects. Behind the scenes as a freelance video producer/writer, her latest project had her working with native Texan celebrities on stories commemorating Texas’ 175th anniversary of statehood. A few of the native Texan celebrities she wrangled are: Chandra Wilson (Grey’s Anatomy), Jim Parsons (Big Bang Theory) and stand up comic Bill Engvall. Lourdes, like most fans from the Detroit area, has a very well rounded knowledge of sports (hockey and football are her favs!) which scored her a few reporting gigs with MSG Sports Network out of New York. She is well traveled and has worked with people of all ages and walks of life, enhancing her ability as an actress and every job she undertakes. Her most memorable roles: playing an assassin in an independent film and “Malinche” a character of historical and mythological intrigue on stage.
