Cheri Montesanto

Cheri Montesanto was nominated for three Emmys and won all three for The X-Files in 1999, 2000, and 2001 as well as a Hollywood Make-up Artists & Hairstylists Guild Award, also for The X-Files, in 2000. Montesanto was make-up department head for CSI: Miami for eight years, has worked on The Night Shift, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and is currently working as make-up and make-up effects department head for Better Call Saul. Montesanto, always pragmatic, reminds new make-up artists, “There isn’t one person on the film set who is there for charity. You’re not here because we like to have an extra make-up person, you’re needed here. By the same token, if you’re not doing it, they’re going to get someone else that will.”
