Mikala Gibson is an award-winning stage and screen actress, published writer and master teaching artist. Although she is based in the great state of Texas, her work has been seen on major networks such as HBO, Showtime, BET and PBS. Her work has also been featured at the Cannes International Film Festival, Sundance, SXSW, Austin Film Festival, Raindance International Film Festival, Urbanworld Film Festival and the American Black Film Festival, to name a few.
When she is not performing, Gibson is teaching theatre and creative writing to the next generation of young artists. Having taught successfully for 15 years, Mikala is a sought after lecturer and conducts workshops on being an effective teaching artist.
Gibson believes that acting is the most humbling experience. “I’ve portrayed everything from a stripper to a police officer… it’s hard to judge people after walking in their shoes. Everyone has a story and part of my job is to share that story.”
