Actor | Model
Hi there! I’m Olivia Banc, an actress and model currently based in New York. I am a highly versatile performer with extensive training and experience: particular emphasis in Shakespeare and other classical texts. I received my Bachelor’s degree in English: Theater from the University of Rochester where I also completed minors in both Psychology and Digital Media Studies– two areas of expertise that have immensely enriched my acting and modeling. I graduated early from college with distinction as a member of Phi Beta Kappa honor society as well as Psi Chi Psychology Honor Society and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
Outside of my typical collegiate studies, I achieved additional training through attending the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theater’s Six-Week Acting Intensive, the British American Drama Academy’s Midsummer in Oxford Program, and the University of Rochester’s “Theater in England” study abroad intensive program. I have also completed classes such as Acting for Film and Television, Monologue Technique, and Shakespeare Monologue Workshop through the Stella Adler Studio of Acting as well as a workshop in motion capture acting technique.
In addition to acting, I passionately pursue behind-the-scenes crafts such as directing; writing; and designing hair, makeup, and costumes. Other specialties include art, improv, poetry, dance, athletics, and music– I am proficient with six musical instruments!
