Selene Luna presents Special Needs!
At 3'10", Selene Luna is a small package with a very big presence. A veteran of the stage and screen, Selene cut her teeth performing in clubs and art venues, and quickly became a darling of Hollywood's underground scene. An original member of the Velvet Hammer Burlesque, Luna tours internationally and performs regularly with burlesque idol Dita Von Teese. Luna is probably best known for her role in Lionsgate's feature, "My Bloody Valentine 3D", and her role as Margaret Cho's assistant in Vh1's "The Cho Show" - a performance that landed her a nomination for MTV LOGO's NewNowNext: Brink of Fame: Comic Award. Luna's stand-up comedy has led her to work alongside comedy legends Roseanne Barr, Robin Williams and Garret Morris.
The diminutive actress/writer/burlesque artist/stand-up comic/fashion model/activist has faced more obstacles than most as a woman born a little person who emigrated from Mexico to the U.S. with her family when she was just three years old. To date, Luna has written and performed six original one-woman shows, most recent Born to Be Alive produced by the Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center. Luna's original work explores the highs and lows of overcoming multiple levels of discrimination, weaving together a lifetime of adversity. Luna shares her courage and strength of character in the midst of her adversity. Nevertheless, when she addresses the question of whether or not she would like to be "big," she honestly answers "no" because it's all she knows, so why change a good thing. It took her a lifetime to get where she is and gain an audience as well as her own acceptance. Luna is currently starring in her own self-produced online series, "Selene's Hollywood Confidential," a quirky and often dark look at the ups and downs in the life of a struggling little person in Hollywood. Selene Luna has carved a niche for herself and continues to break the stereotypes of little people in entertainment.
