Jimena Larraguivel

My Story

My love for storytelling started when I first watched The Sound of Music as a seven year old girl. I also have a vivid memory of watching my grandma perform live and being marveled by the magic created on that stage. I started writing scripts and poetry at a young age and as a teenager, my life experiences started making more sense through words on paper.

A few years later I completed a BA in Education and found myself teaching English at a primary school. As much as I loved my job, I knew I was called for something different. I took an intensive acting course at Casa del Teatro in Mexico City and then moved to Saskatchewan to complete a Drama degree. Although I somehow managed to survive freezing temperatures of -35 degrees Celsius, it was time for me to turn the page and start a new chapter. I moved to London and after completing an MA in Philosophy of Education I slowly started immersing myself in the world of acting.

I’d say I’m a physical performer at heart (having been an athlete in my teenage years) with a particular interest in clown. Other things I’m currently passionate about are singing, writing, illustrating, cooking, baking, photography, parenting (sometimes lol, I'm a mum of two), holistic medicine, Mexican culture, buying books I never read, and planning holidays I can’t really afford. If I wasn’t an actor I’d probably be a funeral director (yeah, I know).
