Zazie Beetz East River

Raised in New York, I stayed in uptown Manhattan until I left home for college, but I’ve found my way back. I was born in Berlin, and speak both German and English at home.

Throughout High School I trained in a Harlem based theatre company, and in 2009 I graduated from LaGuardia Arts with a departmental concentration in theatre. I graduated from Skidmore College in the spring of 2013 with a degree in French language, but I continued to audition and perform in plays. I’m home again now, and doing my best to put myself out there, as dangerous and terrifying as that can be. But goodness, pretending to be brave is the best way to learn the real thing.
