Hailing from Istanbul, Tiedora DeGrigo is quite a globetrotter. After moving to Sweden as a child, Tiedora spent many years living in different countries across Europe before finally setting her sites on the U.S.
Taking a keen interest in the arts from the tender age of five, Tiedora not only developed a passion for story writing and making up characters; but she would often write poems, paint, and dance as well. Fluent in Swedish, Aramaic, Spanish, English, and Turkish, Tiedora is famous for flexing her linguistic muscles – on stage and screen.
What many don’t know about Tiedora is that she’s also a licensed nurse, as well as an accomplished belly dance, freestyle, and hip-hop dancer, as well as a kick-ass tennis, soccer and basketball player.
Inspired by actors such as Johnny Depp, Vivian Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor, and Robert De Niro, Tiedora’s passion for the craft brought her to Los Angles where she was accepted at the prestigious Stella Adler Academy of Acting, alma mater to icons such as Marlon Brando, Salma Hayek, Robert De Niro, and Benicio Del Toro, to name a few.
Hitting the ground running, Tiedora has starred in several plays including “The Diviners”, directed by Christopher Thornton, “Margaret”, an original play by Timothy McNeil, and “J.B.” directed by Academy Award winner Milton Justice.
On screen, Tiedora starred in the title role of Leila in Alain Villeneuve’s upcoming feature “Leila” where she co-stars alongside French rapper Stomy Bugsy. Tiedora is also scheduled to play the lead role of Summer in Morayo Orija’s upcoming feature film “Gettin’Off,” about an awkward young man who falls in love with a drug-addicted prostitute and fights to get her to kick her deadly habit. Tiedora has also been tapped by Pie Pie Productions to star in the company’s next two upcoming features. She’s the total package – talent, beauty and brains. We can’t wait to see what Tiedora will do next…
