Karina Junker

Karina Junker made her television commercial debut in the Dominican Republic and has been steadily honing her skills ever since, landing roles in an array of English and Spanish film, television, commercial, voice over, print and dance music projects.

Born on May 3, 1980 and a native of Ciudad Victoria, Mexico, Junker moved to the United States when she was eight years old. She began taking piano and singing lessons at an early age and performed in local plays as a teenager. At the age of 18, Junker went to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to do community service for two weeks, but fell in love with the island so much that she stayed for five years. It was during this time that she booked her first international commercial and print campaign for Tricom. Junker attended Universidad Iberoamericana in Santo Domingo, where she did a three-year study in Psychology. She completed her Bachelor of Arts at InterAmerican University of Puerto Rico in 2002.

During Junker’s first semester in graduate school at Columbia University, her mother was involved in a serious car accident, which left her in a coma for two years. Despite the hardship, Junker completed her degree, receiving a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology. Witnessing first hand the fragility of life, Junker had a change of heart and opted to immerse herself completely in her lifelong passion -- acting.

Junker’s most notable work includes an international Hispanic market commercial as the voice for Starbucks Refreshers; the voice for the feature film campaign Bless Me, Ultima; the voice for a Speech Recognition Software for Toshiba; a print advertising campaign for United Airlines & Chase Bank; and her lead role as ‘Marina’ in Dissonance, which was an official selection in the 2012 Cannes Court Métrage at Cannes Film Festival.

Junker is currently signed by William Morris Endeavor, Ford Models, Reign Agency, Page.713 Model & Talent, and A Special Project. Her training and mentorship has been alongside some of the world’s most recognized actors, musicians, entrepreneurs, television personalities and casting directors: Beto Cuevas, Mathew Knowles, John Quiñones, Randy Thom, Deke Anderson, Kris Kyer, Robert Haas, Kendra Shay Clark, Ricki G. Maslar, Cathy Henderson, and Shannon Flynn.

Junker is also on the roster of dance music record labels in Europe: Highway Records, Polar-Rec and Liebe*Detail. She has collaborated in the studio by doing the vocals for respected DJ's such as Chris Lattner, Kruse & Nürnberg, Namito, Oxia, Nicolas Masseyeff, Dance Spirit, David Pher, Mario Aureo and Emanuel Satie.

In addition to her dedication to the performing arts, she is involved in many organizations and is an avid runner. She is a Columbia University Alumni Board Member, UNICEF U.S. Volunteer and United Nations Volunteer. She has ran the Malibu Half Marathon, L.A. Halloween Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon, Chevron Houston Marathon, Rocky Raccoon 25K, Rock 'n' Roll Seattle Marathon, Houston Half Marathon and the BMW Frankfurt Marathon. This charming and diversified actor lives in Los Angeles, California.
