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 alongside Kevin Hart in the hit Netflix film Fatherhood, in 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 and received rave reviews (and took home many prizes) on the film festival circuit, on the CBC TV series Street Legal, and in over 30 commercials (and counting!)
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 television series.
