On Hollowhood, “the best independent film magazine in the UK”, Dominican-born actor and producer, Yissendy Trinidad, is a rising star using her platform to empower and motivate others to achieve their dreams.
Dominican-born actor, producer, and author of Aim For The Stars, Yissendy Trinidad is making an impact with her role as Carmelita in Babylon, an epic period comedy-drama about the highs and lows of 1920s Hollywood. The movie came out in theaters on December 23, 2022, and she played Carmelita.
Carmelita, Trinidad’s character who is based on the real-life Brazilian entertainer Carmen Miranda, appears prominently in the opening scene of the movie, which depicts a wild Hollywood soiree. The scene and Trinidad’s performance have already made headlines for their striking portrayal of Los Angeles’s narcotics culture at the time.
Babylon has received five Golden Globe nominations, with critics praising the impressive cast performances in particular. It follows an intriguing intersection of characters during the emergence of sound films in the late 1920s.
The role has given Trinidad yet another chance to portray her culture and to demonstrate to immigrants everywhere that anything is doable with positivity, preparation, and determination.
Set Your Goals High: Trinidad’s first book, The Keys to Reaching the Sky, was published in English and Spanish in February 2021. Trinidad’s own success journey is documented in the book, as are some useful life lessons and clever tips.
“My message is simple: dream a little, hope a little and believe in yourselves!” said Yissendy.
Trinidad likewise invested energy in Atlanta this year while shooting the impending FX satire English Educator from Brian Jordan Alvarez.
