Moniqua Plante is an award-winning TV, film, and theatre actor, with a BA in literature and theatre (making audiobook narration a match made in heaven!)
Her sultry, strong, playful voice will take you on an action-packed adventure with the badass-beautiful heroine or give you a sneaky peek into a sweeping and steamy romance. Her low tones can conjure a magical coven of witches or creep you out with a cool confident killer. And when you're ready, she'll ease you into mindfulness with a soulful meditation. Give her all the adventure, magic, mystery, romance, and self-help—and you'll be in business!
She's been a series regular on Amazon Prime's hit comedy series, "Dirty Cues" and a fan favorite with her juicy season-long storyline on ABC's Emmy nominated show, “Nashville”. She's guest-starred on notable shows such as Alan Ball's original series “Banshee”, John Well's “Southland”, "Drop Dead Diva", "Gilmore Girls", and the pulp anthology series, "Femme Fatales". Moniqua is also an award-winning independent film producer who has accumulated 14 film festival wins including four Best Actress Awards and Breakout Action Star.
Moniqua is also a Certified Health and Life Coach with Moniqua Plante Wellness, dedicated to helping actors and creative professionals take real care of themselves, feel good in their own skin—and crazy confident in everything they do. It is truly her belief that your health and wellness can directly affect everything else you do in life, especially as a creative. Her path to wellness began with her rectifying those challenging areas in her own life so they wouldn’t show up in her work. And her training as a coach makes self-help books a total no-brainer :)
When she's not performing or coaching, Moniqua loves to travel and pretty much everything outdoors. She's worked in action sports for the ESPN X-Games. She's lived in Spain and traveled through Europe—from snowboarding in Chamonix, France to exploring the ocean caves of Croatia. Her other favorite pastimes include blissing out beachside, practicing yoga, hiking, snowboarding, curling up with a good book, and/or sharing good food and good wine with friends and family. She currently lives, loves, and works in Los Angeles, CA.
