Short Bio

Lena is an independent producer who secures finances for films with known talent attached.

A Screen Actors Guild member since 1991, Lena Banks worked on over 125 projects and turned to production and helping scriptwriters in 1993. From beginners to professionals she's Hollywood's Best Kept Secret - a key Gatekeeper for some of the biggest names in Hollywood. The privacy of her clients and their projects is of the utmost importance.
On all the film and TV projects she worked on she devoured every single detail of the industry. She drove a stunt car in Terminator where she studied James Cameron's every move. On the Ed Wood and Batman Returns sets she studied every facet of Tim Burton's unique directing style and Johnny Depp's brilliant performance. On Reservoir Dogs she learned from Quentin Tarantino. The list of those she learned from is extensive. She talked with and learned from the greats like Jack Lemmon, Harrison Ford, Danny DiVito, Christopher Walken, Don Ameche, Jack Nicholson, Nicholas Meyer, William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Tippy Hedren, Judd Apatow, Russell T. Davies, Bruce Willis, Jim Carey, Stephen Hawking (while on Star Trek), to only name a few.

Lena turned to freelancing her scriptwriter's services in 1995. She brings first hand insight to her teaching as a Lee Strasberg Institute trained actress as well.

Her close association with Aaron Spelling's brilliance as a writer and TV show creator is unsurpassed.
