I am an actor raised in Los Angeles, but currently living in Portland, Oregon. I started acting and stunting back in the 90s, took a long break and I've been back at it now for six years.
I am here for you! Let's run lines until you've got it. Let's talk about the scene and tear it apart so you can build it back up around you. I've trained in Meisner, so if repetition is what gets you there, I'm game. Let's do whatever you need to get to your best performance!
I have worked with directors like Jesse Peretz on Hulu's Shrill and Paul Briganti from Saturday Night Live on the upcoming TBS show, Chad, so I love the comedy, but drama is my bread and butter. Did you see Hunger Games? Yeah, I wasn't in that, but I totally played Willow Shields mom in a movie called Woodstock or Bust and she was Primrose Everdeen and I think that's cool.
If you are reading a part with MEDICAL or SCIENTIFIC terms and need help, I'm your gal. I have a Master's degree in biotechnology from Johns Hopkins, so I can help you with pronunciation if you need it.
Brandie Sylfae is an award-winning stunt performer, actor, and voice over 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 with roles on SNL alum Aidy Bryant’s Hulu original, Shrill, another SNL alum, Nasim Pedrad’s, new TBS comedy, Chad, and opposite Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen in The Hunger Games) in the multi-award winning feature film Woodstock or Bust.
She began her training in the BFA program at Cal State Long Beach performing 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. She now splits her time between Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon, and 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 also worked 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.
