pre 2020 Barron Commercial 1.jpg
"On set or in the booth, she takes direction really well and is passionate about contributing fully to a project."
David P. Babich - Producer, Director

Ina stars as Steph Miller in the Romantic Comedy Learning to Love  now streaming on Sony's Pure Flix.™ On the same platform, you can catch her in the family adventure feature Legacy Peak  opposite American screen legend Lucas Black (Slingblade, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift ).  

On television, she's Recurred and had Guest & Co-Star roles on CBS, FOX, and USA Networks for shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Bones, and Royal Pains.

Born Selina Mia Barron, Ina identifies as Mestiza American i.e., of Jicarilla Apache, Tarahumara Mexican, Spanish & French descent. Given her career trajectory and an appreciation for classic works, fantasy & period drama, Ina finds great enthusiasm and creative inspiration for linguistic challenge and non-traditional casting opportunities. The differences in play between various presentational and representational styles offer consistent potential for the kind of artistic growth she would love to continue to develop.


Ina's Pure Flix ™ movies greatly contrast her titular role as femme fatale in the Tarantino-esque psychological thriller Iliana Ver Mne produced at the historic LenFilm Studios in St. Petersburg with a star-studded Russian cast. The film premiered a year prior to Russia's attack on Ukraine, an offensive that brought mass destruction and loss of life, made the Slavic nation somewhat of a global pariah, and in turn destroyed an important part of her own life's work of endeavoring to bridge Russian and American cultures through the performing arts. Work that also took place at times on the Black Sea in Ukraine.

She was fortunate, however, to have had the chance to work and connect with many great Russian cultural icons and artists like 'People's Artist of Russia' Viktor Sukhorukov (Brother, Brother 2), 'Merited Artist of the Russian Federation' Grigoriy Siyatvinda, Actor-Director-Producer Fyodor Bondarchuk (9th Company), Makar Zaporozhsky (Red Sparrow ), Aleksei Morozov (The White Crow ), Anna Churina (Iron Mask), Aleksei Barabash (Russian Ark), and countless other players at the center of Moscow's film and theatre scene. The anti-hero protagonist Iliana was a dream role that Ina believes embodied an aspect of her 'Ikigai' (from the Japanese word meaning 'reason for being'). This particular character revealed unsavory aspects at the underbelly of human motive that can create brutally adversarial conditions. Yet in removing the mask of Iliana, what remained was Ina's artistic spirit and ability to lead this work, which ultimately exemplified a love and respect for a people and culture historically and geopolitically adversarial to her own. As the first American-born actress to carry a full Russian feature in the language, the opportunity came years after she began her professional life on the Russian stage and screen. She graduated university with a BFA in Theatre from CU Boulder and a Certificate from the American Soviet Theatre Initiative in a curriculum held at the world-renowned Moscow Art Theatre School (the birthplace of 'realism' in acting) with accreditation through Connecticut College and the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center. Additional studies include a semester at the Vakhtangov Theatre Conservatory where she worked on a production of Tom Stoppard's Arcadia in the role of Lady Croom, later Buechner's Woyzeck in the Vuissotsky Center at the Taganka Theatre, and the American Rock Musical Hair at Stas Namin's State Music and Drama Theatre at Gorky Park. Thereafter, she moved to Los Angeles and began to commute between countries.

At the other end of the spectrum in classical theatre training is "speaking the speech" of Shakespeare. Ina has studied the Bard's work with various teachers at renowned American theatre institutions throughout her career, including A Noise Within - California's Classical Theatre Company; the New American Theatre with Alfred Molina; the Colorado Shakespeare Festival; the Denver Center for Performing Arts' former National Theatre Conservatory & Wilbur James Gould Voice Research Center; and Playhouse West in Studio City for a Meisner approach to speaking the text. One of her favorite roles of all time was playing Olivia in a Southern American adaptation of the comedy,Twelfth Night


With an ear for language, accents and dialects, she loves singing in various musical genres from A Cappella to Opera, Musical Theatre to Gospel and Jazz. Her singing voice ranges from alto to mezzo soprano. Her last musical theatre performance was in the lead role of Sheila for a production of Hair in Los Angeles with James Kyson (Heroes) and Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty). 


Ina's earliest professional moment was being cast just out of high school in the ensemble for a Denver Center for the Performing Arts production of Romeo & Juliet directed by Israel Hicks — the late legendary American theatre director known for staging the entirety of the August Wilson Cycle plays. Although she chose to pursue a formal education at the time, aspirations to work on stage in the regional circuit, Off-Broadway, on Broadway, and perhaps even on the West End, still remain.

Commercial appeal has landed her work in dozens of National Commercial Campaigns and in Voiceover.
