Claudia Watanabe is an actor, writer, and a lover of all things strange and glamorous.

Born to an Australian/English mother and a Japanese father, she was raised in between Tokyo, Sydney and London. Having spent over nine years in Tokyo, she finished high school in Sydney before attending Boston University; where she received a B.F.A in Theatre Arts in May 2019.

An alum of the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA) Classical Acting Semester Programme, she is also a member of the Asian American Theatre Artists of Boston (AATAB) and STAMP Productions.

Her most recent theatre credits at Boston University include Liz Morden and Lieutenant William Dawes in Our Country’s Good, Older Gabrielle in When The Rain Stops Falling and Clytemnestra in Agamemnon: Dawn to Dusk.

She also produced and performed in the first STAMP thesis to premiere in the newly constructed Joan & Edgar Booth Theatre. The Earth is Red was an immersive gallery experience that explored themes relating to belonging, biracial identity and inherited cultural trauma.

She spends her spare time pursing her love for modern art history and watching copious amounts of Bob’s Burgers, Black Mirror and Poirot.
