Tiny but tough, sassy and keenly intelligent, Elana is known for complex, ambitious and genuine characters with big hearts.

In 2010, Elana obtained her BFA in Theatre from Concordia University, where she graduated with Distinction. She currently makes Toronto her home and studies with Matthew Harrison from Vancouver’s The Actor’s Foundry.
