From Family Life To Showbiz, Meet The Real Ortega Family

Who says that a family can not build an empire together from ground up? Well, in Atlanta, one family has done just that! Keylun J. Cruz is the mother of The Ortega Kids: Karlian Cruz Ortega, Karsi Cruz Ortega, and Kloee Sky Ortega. This family has not only inspired many within their community but has opened doors to so many talent in Atlanta.

Keylun Johnson Cruz, born in Atlanta, GA, raised by her Grandmother, Annie Woodward. She grew up always having a passion for the performing arts. The acting bug bit Keylun at the age of 13 when she received her 1st audition for the soap opera, General Hospital. Mentored by Tony award-winning Kenny Leon at her High School, she began to write improv scenes and later, the scenes grew into various stage plays. The late Public Figure/Actress/Activist (daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr) Yolanda King recognized her gifts and continued to mentor Keylun J. Cruz throughout her teen years, casting her in the theater troupe, The Youth Dream Team. Keylun went on in her career cast in several commercials, films, and voice-over national projects.

Obtaining a degree in theater, Keylun also studied in both Atlanta and New York City later winning several playwright awards and recognized by the NAACP. In 2013, Keylun and her son, Karlian Cruz Ortega created and wrote the project, The Ortega Show, which is loosely based on their actual life, with The Ortega Kids being the 1st American-born kids of an immigrant parent. Known from the hit popular Show, Secret Lives of Women, many craved to see more of this eccentric family. So Keylun and Karlian also created a musical part of The Ortega Show, The Ortega Family Musical. This multicultural show opened first in 2017 at the historic Earl Strand Theater in Marietta, GA. With great reviews, Keylun J. Cruz and Karlian Cruz Ortega (mother and son) brought The Ortega Family Musical back to Atlanta in September 2019. At the age of 15, Karlian is the Co-Creator of this project. The reason for creating multi-cultural content is because being bi-racial, The Ortega Kids needed a platform to design, re-create, and open the doors to many actors of multicultural backgrounds, changing the face of television and film through telling their stories as kids of an immigrant parent. In Atlanta, they were rarely cast for roles so they decided to build their own platform.
Even the youngest of The Ortega Kids, Kloee Sky, is the 1st kid to ever launch a scented fragrance earring line. As a young 8 year old entrepreneur, her youth business is flourishing.

Their new, popular theater production, The Ortega Family Musical in 2019, proudly sponsored by Hardy Family Automotive of Paulding County in Dallas GA, Sparkles Family Fun Center of Hiram GA, Raymona Thompson, Krystals of Hiram, GA, Michaels of Hiram GA, Kupkake Blue, Senior Life Services, Ibummerang as Corporate sponsors, the Paulding County community in Georgia is a strong supporter of this talented family.

With a background in acting, taking on multiple tasks were no problem for Keylun J. Cruz. As the Writer, Creator and Producer, Keylun also played the lead role of Layla Ortega alongside her children, Karsi, Karlian, and Kloee in the 2019 show. As this family has cast upcoming/rising actors in both Atlanta and Los Angeles, they aim to also open doors to actors even with disabilities. With that being said, after opening the doors to their new, family-owned production company inside of the historic Dallas Theater of their community named Kapture 7 Entertainment, 10-year-old Karsi Cruz Ortega is the youngest Executive Producer coming out of Atlanta to attach to a documentary film project. The health, faith-based documentary film, Inside of My Mysterious, another one of Keylun J. Cruz’s’ films, was directed by her 15-year-old son, Karlian Cruz Ortega. Inside of My Mysterious Life deals with exposing the causes and effects of people suffering from the disability, Lymphedema featuring medical physician, Dr. Crystal Champion. Inside of My Mysterious Life is officially Academy Qualified for the Oscars 2020. This is such great news for this rising, talented family who have built at rock bottom to ground up, captivating the hearts of many through story-telling. The greatest of all…they are giving other talent opportunities who have been rejected for years. This family believes that all good talent deserves a chance to live their dreams, even if they are the “underdog”.
