Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, AnaLia began at a very early age concertizing worldwide in a piano duo with pianist Olga Romero, receiving numerous awards, recording records, and performing in the film “Cautivia” that won critical acclaim as the Best Latin American Film at the San Sebastian Film Festival 2003.
Later in life, she studied acting with Ruben Benitez and Galina Tolmacheva, a disciple of Stanislawski, which led to a lead role in Abelardo Castillo’s “Israfel”, winning the Estrella de Mar Award during the 1976-77 theater season.
Shortly after, AnaLia traveled the U.S. with her three children, touring as a concert pianist. Simultaneously, Lenchantin studied acting with Allan Miller and Suzane Peretz, as a guest at The Actors Studio, and with Hedy Sontag and Mark Marno at The Lee Strasberg Institute. Recently Ms. Lenchantin was invited to teach at the first Seminar of the Method in Spanish, that will be offered by the institution in February 2018.
AnaLia starred in a number of theater leading roles in works such as The Seagull, Orpheus Descending, The Graduate, The Bear, Glass Menagerie, and The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. As a supporting actress in cinema, Lenchantin worked in 13 independent films alongside actors such as Stefan Gierasch, Conor O’Farrell, Thomas Jane, Prenell Roberts, Tom Badal, and Christopher Pennock. AnaLia was awarded Best Supporting Actress for Standpoint at the IIFC, the IDY International Festival of Cinema in 2017.
