Michelle Lulic is a native New Yorker, actor, screenwriter, filmmaker, and avid coffee drinker.
She's also a Virgo Sun, Cancer Moon, and Leo Rising... if that means anything to you.
After graduating from Rutgers University with a B.A. in Journalism, Media Studies, and Theater Arts, Michelle began her New York career as an entertainment writer for Bustle.com while auditioning in the New York market. She landed her first co-star role in the award-winning web series, Mythos, followed by an appearance on the Netflix-streaming series, Brown Nation. She later traveled through time with her recurring role on the Travel Channel series, Mysteries at the Museum and with roles on Investigation Discovery's Hometown Homicide, Diabolical, and Pandora's Box: Unleashing Evil.
Her writing transitioned from articles to screenwriting, with her first television comedy pilot script, Leased -- placing as a Quarterfinalist in Screencraft's 2017 Pilot Launch Competition. She then wrote, starred in, and made her directorial debut in her first original short film, Fine. -- which premiered at the 2018 Big Apple Film Festival and screened across the film festival circuit. It won Best Sci-Fi Short and Best Acting Duo at the L.A. Independent Shorts Awards in 2020 and is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
During the global pandemic, Michelle made her way behind the microphone as a voice for animation, audiobooks, and as a two-time podcast guest. She also wrote, filmed, and starred in the original dramatic monologue piece, Terminal, which was awarded the Grand Jury Prize for Best Monologue from the Imagine Rain Independent Film Awards.
When she's not on-set, Michelle's favorite place to be is in the perfect window seat of a coffee shop, drinking the perfect cup of coffee, and writing her next passion project.
