Rachel Lyon

Hello friends! As theater raised actor from NJ now living in LA acting, writing, and directing, I am openly and eagerly ready to work with you however needed!

I had the pleasure of studying Theater at the University of Southern California and pioneered the Comedy minor for writing and directing in the School of Cinematic Arts. I am currently training with Desean Terry (Juilliard grad and series regular on The Morning Show). Also UCB and Groundlings trained, though character improv is certainly my strong suit :)

I was a CASTING ASSISTANT and READER in Nancy Nayor's casting office, giving me endless experience reading multiple roles at once, connecting with actors, improving, and understanding what is effective and desired by CDs and directors.

I love working with new humans and hope to support this wonderful community of artists on here through:
-scene reading
-character development
-dramatic or comedic improv
-Or just creative and professional pursuit :)

Shoot me an email at therachellyon@gmail.com or find me on Instagram: @therachellyon

Proud 5'2"...what I lack in height, I make up in appetite.
Ideal role: Ross and Rachel's daughter Emma all grown up in a spin off.
