Kimberly Estrada
Kimberly is an actress and athlete of primarily Chinese, Spanish, and Native descent. She is a “melting pot” of flavors - a “china latina” and plays upon every ingredient. Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Maryland, she believes that balance and focus are keys to life. She is just as committed to practicing sense memory, tai chi, and yoga, as she is to pounding on her heavy bag and focus mitts. She has an extensive background in martial arts, combat, and weaponry, and has trained with acclaimed stuntman Dave Lea to adapt those skills to film.

A quality quickly recognized in Kimberly is her unconquerable spirit. It is the same spirit that drove her to be the only girl to play on the boy’s soccer team in high school and to later compete at the NCAA Division 1 level, on the women’s team at the University of Maryland. It is that same spirit that earned her scholar-athlete awards in college, graduating cum laude with a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice, initially intent on law school. Her passion for acting was sparked in theater classes in high school and college, but was fully ignited when she was whisked away to Los Angeles after graduation for a corporate position. She left a lucrative career in the corporate world to take the plunge, follow her bliss, and fill her soul, diving into her training.

Kimberly has been directed by Academy Award® winners Clint Eastwood, Bill Condon, Oliver Stone and the Coen Brothers. She was cast and directed by Clint Eastwood in Best Picture Million Dollar Baby, as one of Hilary Swank’s opponents. Kimberly was Spokesmodel #16 on the first 45 episodes of NBC’s Deal or No Deal and was named as 1 of People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People in 2006. Along her journey, she has also appeared on Good Morning America and The Best Damn Sports Show Period. Kimberly recently appeared on Heroes as an FBI agent and in 8 episodes of Easy Money on the CW.

Kimberly is a talent whose dream is to share her blessings, to be of service, and to help make the world a better place. She is as comfortable in front of the camera as she is working with children and others in need. The human experience of acting is what makes her tick. She is a talent who is willing to push boundaries, enjoy the adrenaline, and savor each and every moment of the ride.

EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE: KIMBERLY ESTRADA, ACTRESS & PRODUCER

Q: You were first featured on PhillipFritts.com back in August 2011 but I understand that a lot has happened in your life since? What have you been up to since last year?

A: Yes, a lot has happened since we spoke last year. I’m still acting, but I’ve really plunged into the producing side and am fully embracing it. So many actors tend to think that the work begins when they step on set, but aren’t aware of how much happens before the cameras even roll.
