Ria Pavia is a director, producer, writer and acting coach. She
directed two episodes of TV at the end of last year: Freeform’s
Grownish and ABC’s General Hospital. Her film directorial debut,
Second Team, nabbed 16 awards at various prestigious festivals,

launched with performing gymnastics in a tampon commercial in the
‘80s. This stint propelled her into acting in TV commercials, guest
spots, and film roles. Back in the day, she recurred on Who’s the
Boss, The Hughleys, and the soap opera Santa Barbara.
In the theatre world, Pavia has collaborated with Noah Wyle,
Jennifer Aniston and Mark Ruffalo; directing over 45 plays and
musicals. She recently directed her first music video in partnership
with TikTok and Apple. Pavia attended Interlochen Arts Academy
for high school as a Theatre Major, studied under the late great
Sanford Meisner in the West Indies, and finished up at UCLA
focusing on Theatre, TV & Film. Her most rigorous training revolves
around the title of Mother to Adrianna (22 years old) and Dominic &
Rocco (20 year old twins).
