Kidany Camilo [pronounced /’kidani’kamilɔ/] is an actor, director, and educator. Originally from Bayamón, Puerto Rico, they were raised by their loving grandparents that played boleros on blast on Radio Oro 92.5. They found their passion while being a part of the theatre club in middle school, since then it’s all been uphill. They took voice lessons and acting lessons outside of school to improve their craft, but they wanted more. It was only a matter of time before they left paradise to pursue their passions.
Through hard work and unconditional support from their family, Kidany is a graduate of USF's undergraduate theatre program and is an MFA Acting candidate at Purdue University. When they're not in the theater, you can find them playing video games [most likely Smite, Final Fantasy or Pokémon], learning the dance routine to a new video, or researching how to get Acerola [pronounced /asɛˈɾola/] ice cream delivered to them stateside.
Some of Kidany’s notable roles include: Earthworm in James and the Giant Peach (ThinkTank Theatre), José Mexicano in Four Guys Named José and Una Mujer Named María (Stageworks Theatre), Charles Hart in Nell Gwynn (Purdue Theatre), Prior Walter in Angels in America (Purdue Theatre), and Anne de Bourgh in Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley (Purdue Theatre). Some of their dream roles are: Valmont in Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Fabrizio in The Light in the Piazza, and Samuel in Tiempo Muerto.
