Heather Drew REEL
Who is Heather?
I always loved 'Buffy' when I was growing up. The unlikely Action Hero and sarcastic one-liners had me hooked. It had Action, it had Laughs, it had vulnerable female characters both Unique and Stronger than they looked; just like me. It was so human yet set in a Sci-Fi world. This show started my dream of being in 'The Business', and also the reason I begged my parents to take Karate for 7 years.
Making my parents happy, I got my BA in Contemporary Arts, and started working as the Assistant to a top CD, where I peeked behind the curtains and learned what happens on the other side of the room. At the same time, I worked at the ActorsConnectionNYC. Running camera for their Acting classes and ultimately coaching in a class called 'Dying for the Camera' alongside the ActingCoach/CD. I coached Actors how to play Zombies, Monsters, and Vampires (Thanks BUFFY), AND I taught them how to realistically and safely get Injured/Die On-Camera. Lots of physical acting exercises. The bonus was that I got to stand next to an Acting Coach for 8 years and participate in classes. I had a TON of fun and learned A LOT.
To date, I have finished ALL levels at The Pit, 10+ years of Acting/VO Classes at the ActorsConnectionNYC, Private Coaching, and currently am studying Accents and VideoGameVO.
I love 'doing the work' and every day on set is a Privilege. And who knows...maybe one day I'll be saying one liners and Slay/Play the Demon on TV.... I hear Charmed just got picked up for another season :) -Heather
What I've been up to in 2022:
My VO work led me to originate the character 'Zara Kon'Klex' in a new Sci-Fi RPG game called 'Omega Horizon' due out end of 2022. Even cooler, my likeness was used as a playable character called 'Tinka'!!!
