I am excited to introduce you to another kick ass female this month on our podcast – Brandie Sylfae. You’ll definitely have to listen to this episode to find out why she is so truly amazing. I can promise you this….you won’t be disappointed!
Brandie Sylfae is an actor, voice over and stunt performer born in Los Angeles, California. As a second degree black belt in Tang Soo Do under Chuck Norris, she got her start in martial arts focused roles, including the television series V.R. Troopers and the feature film Bloodmoon. While she still enjoys a good fight scene, she is proud of her recent work as the lead in the body positivity PSA Glass Cage , the feature Deep Blue, and playing opposite Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen in The Hunger Games) in the feature Woodstock or Bust.
She began her training in the BFA program at Cal State Long Beach performing roles in Inherit the Wind, The Importance of Being Earnest and Agnes of God, and then continued her education with classes in Los Angeles where she was fortunate enough to train Shakespeare with Kate Geer, and improv with John Michalski of Second City and Paul Ryan at CBS Comedy on the Lot. Now residing in Portland, Oregon, she has had the great fortune to study with Nike Imoru, Jana Lee Hamblin, Robert Blanche, Ted Rooney, and is currently training at The Actor’s Lab with Kristina Haddad.
She holds an undergraduate degree in microbiology from UC Santa Barbara and a Master’s degree in biotechnology from Johns Hopkins University where she worked for three years performing basic cancer research. These days, in addition to acting, she focuses on charity work as the co-organizer of the Portland chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance, an international nonprofit focused on equality, literacy, and human rights.
