Alexia Vassos – The Graduate

Stage and Screen Actor, Little Person

Alexia was the first Little Person to graduate from her university’s theatre and drama program. After leaving the safe haven of academia, she’s embarking on a journey to find her place in the industry—whether on stage, screen or in an audio booth. Alexia open to many avenues, but one thing’s for certain: she will not be tokenized.
