"Living the dream until I die."
-from the notes section in my phone
Claudia Ellis is a southern born actor and multi-instrumentalist. She received her BFA in Acting and a BA in Music from the University of Colorado.
My story begins in Montgomery, Alabama where I began teaching myself to play the piano around the age of 3. There, I also joined various ballet companies and watched and participated in shows and educational programs at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. My involvement in each of the arts finally intersected when I moved to Tuscaloosa, Alabama at age 10, and I began my path as an actor/musician. I have very many passions, including bluegrass music, Chris' Hotdogs, Commedia dell'Arte, weightlifting, and Jimmy Stewart movies.
After moving away from Alabama for school, I discovered my deep love of my southern roots and the sounds of the Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains. Nowadays, I enjoy bringing those roots to the stage with me through acting and music. You can check some of that out in the gallery!
