Calra Gugino was born in Sarasota,
Florida but relocated to California when she was five. After graduating
valedictorian from her high school, a major modeling agency discovered her and

her build an impressive body of work. She continues to search for roles
"that move and inspire me as an artist, and allow me to discover parts of
myself that I'm not completely in touch with."
