Ellie is a Jewish NYC and Southeast based actor, producer, director & writer.
She began performing as a child actor at North Carolina Theatre, on set at Screen Gems in The Dress Code (Dir. Shirley MacLaine), and in various commercials and voiceovers. She studied theater at University of the Arts in Philadelphia and graduated from the Terry Knickerbocker Studio in Brooklyn in 2020. Recent credits: Mrs. Winsley in Stop Kiss (Murmuration Theatre), Midge in Wedding Blues (Players Theatre), Eurydice in Polaroid Stories (Allen’s Lane), Dora Maar in The Artists’ Women (Philly Fringe). She's also acted in several indie films, including starring in Terrence Kirton’s short film, Visitor.
Ellie's interest in socio-politically relevant work inspired her to direct and produce both the Philadelphia and NYC sold-out runs of This Is Not About 9/11 (SoLow Festival). She is currently producing an off-off Broadway production of Trudy & Max in Love by Zoe Kazan and Making Our Space, a self-produced actor's showcase, at The Kraine Theater.
VULNERABILITY WITH A BACKBONE
I'm drawn to women who are in struggle,
who have deep feelings and aren't afraid to express them.
I'm at my best when I'm cast as:
women who are yearning for an unattainable,
almost divine connection with someone else,
in the world or environment around them,
or within themselves.
Ellie is self-producing and performing in MAKING OUR SPACE,
an industry-only showcase at The Kraine Theater,
created by actors, for people who love actors.
