Mini Bio (2)

Raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Louriza Tronco landed her very first professional theatre gig at the age of eight with Rainbow Stage's production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" as part of the children's choir. From there she explored musical theatre and wanted to try film just to shake things up a bit; before you knew it, she fell in love with the craft. Juggling dance competitions, school plays and part-time jobs, she always made time to hit the books. At age 17 she graduated from high school and packed her bags to attend The Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria, BC. Even with attending college six days a week, she pushed herself to commute from Victoria to Vancouver for auditions.

After the two-year program, she moved to Vancouver to pursue her career full-time. Louriza got her first break when she was cast in a guest appearance on The CW's Cult (2013) in 2013. Her film credits include Disney Channel's TV movie Zapped (2014), My Boyfriends' Dogs (2014), My Life as a Dead Girl (2015) and the feature Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014).

Personal Quotes (3)

Q: What was it like growing up with two older brothers? A: I was always into Barbies and playing dress up as a kid and they wanted to play Nintendo and action figures, so it got lonely sometimes. I always got my own room, because they didn't really like my ruffled curtains or pink sheets. RJ is almost two years older and Emmanuel is four years older than me. They were super helpful with my pre-cal and chemistry homework which is awesome. Not so great with asking them to come watch my three hour dance recitals; we would have to drag them to sit in the audience. I guess that's payback for them not letting my Barbies have a play-date with their Power Rangers.
Q: What's your family background? Who named you? Are you named after anyone? A: Both my parents are Filipino -- they moved from the Philippines to Winnipeg, Manitoba in their mid-twenties and that's where I grew up. My parents named me using my Lolas' (Grandmas in Filipino). My mom's mom is Lourdes and my dad's mom is Rizalina. They took half from each name and got Louriza! Both of my Lolas are super hard working, so I'm definitely proud to be named after them.
Q: You play the "not too bright" Yuki in the upcoming Disney Channel original movie Zapped. Tell us about your audition. A: I got the audition with the help of my amazing manager, Deb. I was originally up for the part of Taylor Dean and was living in Victoria, BC at the time so I self-taped. I didn't really think anything of it -- I didn't even know it was Disney at that stage! I was away on vacation when I had an inbox full of messages from my manager saying they wanted to bring me in for a callback. The next day I hopped on a boat and then a plane to Vancouver. I read for the director, Peter DeLuise, that day. A couple of days went by and I got another call saying that they wanted to see me for another role, Yuki. I went in for a second callback. They wanted to make sure I could dance so they asked me to do a couple of turns on the spot -- so I literally kicked off my heels and danced a hip-hop solo that I happened to remember from when I used to compete in dance. They were playing the Janet Jackson song off my iPhone and I was dancing on the carpet in a small room -- it was so fun!
