Teneisha Collins is a Canadian screen, television, voice, and stage actress, writer and host.
Born and raised in Montreal, Teneisha developed her passion for acting early in her life, and at the age of 10, urged her parents to sign with her first agent. That precocious child is now a woman best known for playing strong female characters in television and film. Teneisha can most notably be seen on the small screen in the final season of Hulu’s Seth Rogen-produced sci-fi comedy Future Man, starring alongside Louis Ferreira (Motive, Bad Blood,) and Sergio Di Zio (Rogue, Flashpoint) on the Investigation Discovery/Netflix anthology series Real Detective, in the short film Red Wine (dir. Santiago Menghini) which premiered at Cannes in May 2019 and is currently getting rave reviews (and taking home many prizes) on the film festival circuit, on the CBC TV series Street Legal, and in over 25 commercials (and counting!)
Teneisha has recently fulfilled one of her career goals of performing with international comedic sensation Kevin Hart; she announced that she’ll be acting alongside Kevin Hart in a large supporting role in the dramatic comedy feature film Fatherhood, slated for release spring 2021.
Devoted to her craft, she has most notably trained in the Meisner Technique for over 8 years with the late and great Jacqueline McClintock, who Teneisha affectionately calls her “acting mama,” in addition to honing her skills and talents with other talented coaches and specialists. An alumna of Black Theatre Workshop’s prestigious artist mentorship program, Teneisha has performed in several theatrical productions, playing Bess in The Last Wife (Imago Theatre,) Claire in The Breakfast Club (d2productions,) and the Interviewer in The Shadow Box (d2productions,) among others. Teneisha is also a writer, currently developing her own comedic television series.
