Liana Cornell

Actor, Director, Writer, Presenter, Executive Producer, Reiki Master and Musician

Born in the middle of a thunderstorm in the valley of Mullumbimby, Liana spent her formative years being home-schooled traveling the world. This early experience opened her eyes to the necessity to bridge cultures and countries, in order to care effectively as a collective for our planet. 

Liana studied a Degree in Fine Arts and Media, at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts, and has since gone on to produce multiple documentaries, including the Refugia Series, which she is also Director, Writer, Presenter and Executive Producer of. She ran an environmental company called Save Our Skins for 5 years, which focused on ecological news, philanthropic work and the continuation of research to help endangered animals and ecosystems. 

Liana presently plays Ania, a lead in Sky’s TV series, “Britannia”, and her passion for performance has fostered her desire to have a resounding voice for those without one. She is also a Reiki Master, writer and musician, who aims to use her gifts for the greater good, channeling her monetary energy into scenarios which benefit us all. She believes strongly that the invisible, spiritual aspects of our world are in staunch support of what is visible, and that currently, an important vibrational shift is occurring for humanity. 

Liana is committed to her most valuable life role – that of helping to heal our beautiful planet, give woman a greater voice, and to encourage us all to nurture the very best versions of ourselves. 

She believes, ultimately, in the power of the good.
