Personal Profile

Sylvia Love Johnson

Ever since I can remember I wanted to be an actress. I can recall the exact day I told my mum what my profession would be when I grew up. I was 5 years old.
At the age of 9 I started writing compelling stories. These stories sent me in luxurious fantasy journeys. I invented worlds, characters, thoughts and feelings with the thoroughness and devotion that only a child can have.

In my early teen years I moved to London there I studied Performing arts at college and later on a BA in Acting at Middlesex University. I started writing as a press officer at Middlesex University and then went on to publish Arts and Education related articles in magazines.

After graduating I wrote my very first full length screenplay “Tears of Mariposa Lily” Reluctant to send it off to any producer or filmmaker who could alter of change my screenplay I decided that I had to do it myself, learn to produce and make films. Such a task seemed impossible at the time but I set off on a long journey collaborating and helping in different productions, with talented filmmakers like Efren Gonzalez and Antionio Gonzalez, Lance Nielsen.

I had many compelling roles in theatre productions, such as Sonya in Uncle Vanya, Desdemona in Othello, Princess Jasmine in Aladdin. Then I continued to juggles different, TV, Cinema and Theatre roles and writing with a demanding family life. Many of my creations such as the Hekate story, emergedand developed in between breast feeding and changing nappies.

Years later I enrolled in a MA in Film Making course at Kingston University in London, ever since I have made 3 short films. “Lance and Lucy. The Short Movie”, “The Explorers” and “She Moon Love Spell”
