Thank you for visiting my site.

I just shot a fiery scene opposite the wonderful John Gries (Uncle Rico! Lazlo Hollyfeld!) for the independent feature Gena, directed by Joe Black. We had a lot of fun getting a divorce.

The trailer is out for Mother’s Keeper, a dramatic short about a family with a lot of secrets. I play a sympathetic social worker who wants a struggling young mother to get her child back. Playing a person who would be my real-life hero is an absolute joy.

Mercy Christmas screened at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival. I have an unnerving role in this darkly comic horror feature, playing a lonely woman who will do anything for love (related: I may or may not eat a guy).

Other recent roles include a deeply religious farm wife (the beautifully shot Dust to Dust), a frustrated mother dealing with her teenage son’s interest in niche pornography (Belly Button), and a bewildered woman trying to get to the bottom of her husband’s sleepwalking (Wakey Wakey – my first experience working with the great folks at UCLA).

I continue to study weekly with the terrific Richard Seyd at Seydways Acting Studio and am overjoyed with the powerful work we do. Every class brings a new discovery in a focused, professional environment.

Also, I recently cut my hair. New headshots to come!

Please do contact me if you’ve got a project in mind; I love collaborating with inspired people.

Happy everything’s-blooming-and-everyone’s-sneezing season,
Dakota
