Meet The Cast
Manu Intiraymi’s interesting name is a combination of Manu (The Incan God of Law) and Intiraymi (The Incan God of the sun). He’s not Incan. Born in Santa Cruz CA, he spent most of his childhood traveling around the United States and the world with his parents. At four years old, Manu Intiraymi saw a production of “Peter Pan” at the local community theater and immediately wanted to become an actor. When he graduated high school, he attended P.C.P.A California Conservatory, before moving to Hollywood. Manu began training at the Howard Fine Studio (based on the acting techniques of Uta Hagen) and Playhouse West (a Meisner technique school) and began working in television, film and theater. Manu’s theater work includes lead roles in “Waiting for Godot”, “Marvin’s Room”, and “The Wizard of Oz”. He made his debut in the movies in the film “Senseless” working with Penelope Spheeris and Marlon Wayans. Other film work includes a starring role in “Whatever It Takes” (Phoenix Pictures), as “Dunleavy”, plus supporting roles in “Go” (Sony), “Orange County” (Paramount), “Pearl Harbor”, and “J. Edgar.” Most recently Manu starred on the final season of “One Tree Hill” as the vicious villain “Billy”. In 2012 he played the lead role of “Charlie O’hare” in the breakout indie hit “Fortress” (A WW2 epic from Bayou Pictures and Radical 3D). In 2013 we will see him star in his first Executive produced feature as the lead character “Benjamin Ramsey” in “Benjamin Troubles” (A Dark Comedy from the writer of “Downloading Nancy”). He has also appeared on well-known television series, like “Las Vegas”, “24”, “King of Queens”, “Jag”, “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”, “Unhappily Ever After”, “Smart Guy”, and “Pacific Blue”. His recurring role as Icheb, on “Star Trek: Voyager” lead to a loyal worldwide fan base. Manu’s work as Icheb began in early 2000, in the episode “Collective”, and soon transformed into a large recurring role that placed him on the show in season six and through to the final episode of season seven. He will be reprising his role as Icheb in the upcoming “Star Trek: Renegades.” He has recently ventured into into writing and producing, and has five lead roles in feature films coming in the next year and a half.

Berna Roberts is a Mexican, American Indian Los Angeles based Actress originally from East Chicago. She began as a stage Actress at the age of twelve. Her first professional role was playing Edna Arkins in Lynda Barry’s “The Good Times Are Killing Me”, a pre-adolescent girl’s coming of age story during a time of racial integration. While continuing stage work, she won the Original Oratory Optimist Speech Contest (just like Julia Roberts did as a young girl). This only pushed her to further continue working as an Actress. She had an opportunity during that time to work as an Actress in events such as pARTners Performing For Life, raising awareness and funds to find a cure for the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This idea of being able to use her craft and voice to make a difference in the world excited her. Eventually, she moved to New York where she landed a small role in her first film. A few months later she booked the lead in a potential Television Pilot filming in Las Vegas. After completing filming on the Pilot, she moved to Los Angeles and began studying at an Arts Conservatory. She currently works in Film and Television, and regularly campaigns for equality in the LGBT community, at-risk youth with the Writegirl organization, and diversity and inclusion in the film industry.
