Hi there! I am Dana (pronounced DAN-uh).
I graduated from Emerson College with a BFA in acting. I can be hired locally in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver, Boston and Tel-Aviv.
I was born and raised in Tel-Aviv, and as a teen moved to Toronto, Canada. I’ve been fortunate to experience two very different cultures and to act in several countries: from studying and performing Shakespeare in London to collaborating on numerous films and TV shows in the USA, Canada and Israel. I have connected with people of diverse backgrounds, constantly learning and getting inspired by their various perspectives on life. I'm passionate about telling stories that raise awareness, question reality, and inspire empathy and change.
My experiences and personal history inform my craft as an actor. One moment I am super-Israeli: curly hair, dark eyes, tan, and can let an accent slither out in between words; and another moment I am thoroughly American: I straighten my hair, my tan disappears with the winter months, and my look is as Eastern European as can be.
But if you’re looking for my type, I am probably the goofball friend gone hippie/bohemian, girl-next-door that can be bitchy if the angle is right, very Jewish but also not, an angsty teen when I am feeling dark, and sometimes funny when I choose to be. So, you tell me what you see! :)
