“It was my honor to portray Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Wright in Women of the Movement. “The importance of telling this story today is to serve as a mirror. A mirror that reflects the lessons we haven’t yet learned. It’s my hope that if really look at what this family endured, with an open heart and open mind, then our nation - even the world, can start the necessary healing we need in order to really experience the gift of humanity.” said Fleming-Alvarez.

In September 2020, Fleming-Alvarez opened the VFA Acting and Performance Studio to pass along the collective knowledge she gained on the industry after years of auditioning (on-tape and in-person), driving across states for call-backs, and deciphering the casting jargon.

“I hope to save other aspiring actors months of trial and error by providing these tools and skills,” said Vivian Fleming-Alvarez. “I want to demystify working in the entertainment business while encouraging others to pursue their dreams, no matter where you are in life.”

All aspiring actors should reach out to Vivian and sign up for classes.
