Mini Bio (1)
Born in the Bronx, New York, Eileen enjoys quite an eclectic background: although born in NY, she comes from a mix of Cuban, Puerto Rican and Spanish blend. Her mother's family stepped foot in the US in 1868 following the tobacco trade as cigar workers, first in Key West, then finally settling in Ybor City (Tampa), Florida. Eileen is passionate about children's television, especially the world of Animation. She has been involved in several award winning projects including "Dora The Explorer", "Phineas and Ferb" and the long running PBS Science show "Newton's Apple". On stage Eileen has appeared Off Broadway and in Regional theatres across the country. In Los Angeles she appeared opposite the legendary Chita Rivera in "The House of Bernarda Alba" at the Mark Taper Forum. In 2010 Ms. Galindo was nominated for the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Featured Performance in "The Clean House" at International City Theatre in Long Beach, CA and won the Garland Award the same year. On the political front, Eileen served as a board member of the Screen Actor's Guild for three years. At only twenty one years of age, Eileen became instrumental in the non-traditional casting movement that gained momentum in the 1990s, putting herself on the picket lines to encourage Broadway producers to endorse diversity in casting. As a result, today Broadway is certainly more integrated.
