Born in California to Hungarian parents, Krisztina Koltai grew up leading a double-life; half the year as an American in the San Francisco Bay Area, half as an Eastern European in Budapest. In her twenties, Krisztina moved to Los Angeles to earn her theater degree at the esteemed American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and soon after, she made her stage debut in at the Culver City Ivy Substation, as Dee in "I Am Yours”. Krisztina continued developing her craft as a company member of The Group Repertory Theater Company, playing such roles as Corie in Neil Simon's beloved "Barefoot in the Park", among others.
Not limited to stage, Krisztina can be seen in such indie films as "The Prayed For", "Stay Still" and "Always Down", as well as in the 48 Hour Film Project finalist short (48hourfilm.com), "Threshold”. But most notably, Krisztina is known for playing "Marta" the Hungarian nanny, opposite Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, in the Columbia Pictures comedy, "Sex Tape".
Krisztina Koltai has also begun exploring the path of writing. She has discovered a budding love of it, through her years of studying scripts. In the dark comedy short, “Meat Cute”, Krisztina is credited as contributing writer in tandem with lead actress.
Described in Hungarian Glamour Magazine as "an extraordinary, straightforward talent", Krisztina Koltai aims to uphold that lovely distinction, and proudly continue her double-life as a Hungarian-American actress and writer.
