Folami Williams


I'm Folami Williams and I am a New York City based actor...teaching artist...creator. Needless to say acting is a career and art that I am deeply passionate about.

I received a Bachelor’s degree in Drama from the University of Virginia. Then continued my acting training in NYC at The Acting Studio, Primary Stages, and Peoples Improv Theatre; before receiving my MFA in Acting from Columbia University School of the Arts.

I love work that is challenging, physical, and visceral. As a reader that is exactly what I work to help you create. I can be there to help you learn lines, make dynamic choices, or just be another voice in the room (feedback or no feedback) as long you need. Let's book some work together.
