LaTonia Robinson was born in New York, NY, and is a Third Culture Kid of Jamaican decent. LaTonia was raised with a strong belief that anything is possible if you work towards making your dreams a reality. When LaTonia was 23 years old, she moved to Florida, and developed into the woman that she is today.


LaTonia’s entertainment journey started in the world of modeling at the invitation of Head Designer/Owner, Nina Verklas for House of “Bambina by NV” during Fashion Week Tampa Bay in 2010. She was the only Plus Model to be featured in her collection, and the multi-designer show during a time when the fashion industry was slowly becoming more size inclusive. It was from this experience that LaTonia decided to become a voice for curvy women everywhere, and she went on to grace the runways for major and independent designers across the country.


At the forefront of the fashion industries transformation, LaTonia modeled for many of the highly coveted Plus Size Fashion Shows including SuStyle Xpo in Puerto Rico (2017), Full Figured Fashion Week in New York (2015 and 2014), New York Fashion Week SS 2015 for Betty Jean Couture, as well as, local runway shows in the Tampa Florida area including Christian Fashion Week, St. Pete Art & Fashion Week, Haute Accessories Fashion Week, Embrace Your Curves, and many more. LaTonia has also modeled on live television for various programs on major networks such as HSN, WFLA-NBC, CNN Latino, Telemundo, and WWSB ABC 7.
These experiences were an excellent outlet for the stylistic trendsetter, and it would also prove to be a fortunate precursor for the start of her professional Acting career. Having worked closely with some of Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars within the Film & Television industry for almost two decades, as the Director of Operations for The KIS Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization that raises awareness for Sickle Cell Disease, LaTonia would discover a keen interest in acting and began her training at the infamous Performers Studio Workshop in Tampa. The school, widely known as “PSW”, gave her the valuable experience of performing on stage to a live audience, and prepared her for film and television. LaTonia also continued to grow her craft by studying the art of Improvisation at American Stage Improv in St. Petersburg, FL.


As a Theatre Actor, LaTonia took to the big stage with her official acting debut in April 2018 as a Principal character, Jaqueline Jones in "L'Artiste. It's French". A New Stage Play written by Joi Banks for Millennials, Artists, Fashion Lovers, Entrepreneurs and Dreamers at the University of South Florida's Performing Arts Center (2018) and at the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival (2019). She later played the no nonsense character of Kathy Smith in “Fighting God” written by Rory Lawrence with an Opening Night Performance for the Tampa Bay Theatre Festival, Straz Center (2019).
As a Film Actor, LaTonia’s next steps included performing to the camera. Her resume includes supporting and lead roles in Feature Films: Basketball Jones (2024) and Icon (2022); and Short Films: Ask Aldo (2022), Tomorrow (2019), The Shituation (2018), Susan (2018), and Harvester (2018).


This young star has an incredible range, comedic timing, intense concentration, ability to think outside the box, and a steely determination to be involved with projects that challenge her professionally with wide-ranging subject matters and characters.

LaTonia has proven that she is a woman of many talents and continues to shine her undying light on the world!
