About Rachel Benaissa

Rachel Benaissa is a French actress and writer whose work often blends drama with dark humour and finds the comedy in the absurdity and challenge of everyday life.  She writes unabashed about mental health challenges, identity and the conflict of multi-heritage labels with a fresh, vibrant humour and contemporary relevance.

Her dramedy feature script JULIET IS FINE placed in the top 10% of the 2020 & 2021 Academy Nicholl Screenwriting Fellowship and as a Finalist in the 2021 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards. Her latest TV Pilot ANY THING ANY MORE landed her a spot on the shortlist of 25 writers for the 2024 BBC PILOT scheme and placed as a runner-up in the 2023 Outstanding Screenplays TV Pilot Competition. She is currently working on a dark comedy-horror TV series about social media called SELF CARE GIRLIE and a short dark comedy-drama about technology and its repercussions.
