ABOUT ME:
I’m a strong yet vulnerable actress, a multilingual voiceover artist, and a contributing writer for Backstage.com, who feels intuitively connected to her work.


REVIEWS:
“.. a truthful actor who captivates you the moment she steps on stage…with poise, passion, and soul...” -- Cara Cruickshank, Writer/Director ‘The Alchemy of Imperfection.’

“... phenomenal in ‘The Proposal.’ Very funny and believable.” -- Keith Ashton, Comedian

“Keep your sunshine smile wherever you go... it sells tickets, y’know!” —Amy Lyndon, Actress/Acting Coach, The Lyndon Technique


MINI BIO:
Just completed voiceover role for a major streaming platform!
I STARTED MY CAREER by being directed by Christopher Guest in a national commercial! I've also worked with the likes of Wim Wenders, Mark Sikes, Victor Nelli Jr., and Lake Bell.
FAVORITE CREDITS include the lead role in US-Canadian feature "KILLER PUNJABI," Horror Series "THE GIRL IN THE WOODS"- in which she played the role of Kal Penn's bold wife, and the lead role in "ALL FOR LOVE," a family comedy that explored the fun and the complex dynamics of interracial relationships.
A series of noteworthy STAGE PERFORMANCES include playing a spirited young and an angry old woman in 'THE ALCHEMY OF IMPERFECTION', the 1920s headstrong daughter of a landlord in 'THE PROPOSAL,' a ruthless female terrorist in 'Female Terrorist Project,' and playing an undercover cop, "Ms. Orange," in an All-Female adaptation of "RESERVOIR DOGS."
I have studied with acclaimed teachers like Natalie Roy, Jane Dashow, Ivana Chubbuck, Margie Haber, and Greg Simms.
I'm FLUENT in Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu; and love to dance to the music of the spheres! I'm also training in Stage Combat at Academy of Theatrical Combat, LA.

Lily Shaw is a fiery, earthy, heart-driven powerhouse actress, rescued and inspired by the make-believe world of cinema at the age of 7. She has been called “a rising star,” “phenomenal, funny, and believable,” and “a truthful actor.”

Lily is also a contributing writer for Backstage magazine; is published in Authority magazine, Voyage LA and ThriveGlobal.

A first-generation Indian American, she’s the first woman in her family to step away from tradition to pursue a creative profession and has been a powerful voice for women’s empowerment since childhood—fiercely standing for equality and empowerment.

“Authentic,” “vulnerable,” a great storyteller,” and “inspirational” Lily is a popular guest on women-empowering podcasts, and leads by example and inspires audiences to use their voice, own their gifts, and authentically become who they were born to be.
