Cassandra was born in April 1990 to Luis and Joyce Cardenes. Her father passed away when she was 8 due to complications from diabetes so after 13 sweet years of childhood in Denver, CO, her tortured child like soul was ready for showbiz baby! Cassandra begged and pleaded with her mother to move to Los Angeles.
Once here she began studying with Joanna Sanchez (whom she still studies with today) along with different, more specialized commercial or teen coaches. She spent her high school years in Burbank doing drama and show choir. In show choir she learned how to sing, dance, and to win awards. For about two years she ran sound at her brother’s underground stand up show every Friday night in Hollywood. It was there that she learned how much she truly loved comedy. She began taking classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater when she was 19 years old and hasn’t looked back. Along with UCB she has also taken classes at Improv Olympic, Groundlings, and The Clubhouse.
She currently can be found riding scooters down Wilshire Blvd. trying to make auditions and writing long hours in her apartment trying to create something brilliant. She produces her own short films and sketches for film festivals and online channels.
She is a founding member of Ladies Lunch Productions along with Kate Murdoch. Check out that website for updates on their most recent creations!
