Meet Bria Vinaite, the ‘Florida Project’ breakout we’ll be talking about for the rest of the year


Bria Vinaite was sure she was being catfished.

The 24-year-old New Yorker with no acting experience was making a living through her marijuana-themed clothing line on Instagram when some guy contacted her about a movie role. She responded, she said — so she could laugh about it later.

The random DM was from Sean Baker, who wanted to know if she'd try out for The Florida Project. As it turns out, Baker knows a thing or two about casting unknowns — he's also the guy who cast first-timers Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor in Tangerine.
