Actress Callie Hernandez made her big screen debut in long-awaited horror sequel "Blair Witch" (2016) before going on to work with acclaimed directors Ridley Scott, Damien Chazelle and Terrence Malick. Born in Austin, TX in 1993, Hernandez first began performing as a cellist, playing in several bands during her teenage years, but later moved into acting with the minor role of a Space Babe in grindhouse spinoff "Machete Kills" (2013). A year later Hernandez played Jessie in two episodes of another Robert Rodriguez creation, "From Dusk till Dawn: The Series" (El Rey, 2014- ), and was cast as thieving club worker Ana in "Members Only" (ABC, 2014), one of those unfortunate shows to be canceled by its network before airing a single episode. Hernandez soon bounced back from the disappointment by landing the role of Lisa Arlington, a college student who helps her boyfriend investigate what happened to his missing sister, in found footage horror "Blair Witch" (2016). Shortly after, she bagged her first major recurring role as Samantha, a free-spirited waitress who becomes an unlikely muse of Nick Nolte's former POTUS in political satire, "Graves" (Epix, 2016), and appeared alongside Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in Damien Chazelle's love letter to the old-school musical, "La La Land" (2016). Hernandez then continued to build up her profile with roles as Julie in Terence Malick's intersecting love triangles tale "Weightless" (2017) and a colony ship crew member in Ridley Scott's sci-fi prequel, "Alien: Covenant" (2017).
