All About Lillian
While growing up in the Bronx, Lillian sweat her way to a first degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, won first place in a local NYPL poetry contest, and fell in love with acting when she got cast as the lead in Twelve Angry Men at her high school (they changed the title to Twelve Angry Jurors since the majority of the cast was women). Then Lillian went to NYU, Tisch School of the Arts and the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute (LSTFI) where she graduated with a BFA in Theatre. She was awarded the 'Drama Award for Outstanding Achievement in Studio' for her work at LSTFI.
Career: Lillian has worked in NY theatre and independent film steadily since graduation.
She was commissioned by the Metropolitan Playhouse in the East Village to create and perform her first one-act documentary play, That’s How Angels Arranged, based on her in-person interview with the legendary avant-garde filmmaker and poet Jonas Mekas.
Her first full-length play How We Love/F*ck had its world premiere at Cherry Lane Theatre last Fall, Sept - Oct 2019. The play explored intimacy and sexual expression and was based on her interviews with 28 different women ranging in age from 25 to 89 years old.
Her indie film work includes acting in the feature film Hannah Has a Ho Phase, co-starring Kate McKinnon; a co-starring role in the feature film Early Light, with Paul Sparks; a lead role in the short film Evening News opposite Golden Globe Award winning and five-time Emmy Award nominated actor Jill Eikenberry; and a lead role in the short film Scheherazade which has been accepted into over 20 film festivals, winning several awards.
Lillian also works as the Community Manager at Committed Impulse, and as a freelance social media coach for creatives. She volunteers on the Board of Directors for the National PKU Alliance, a national non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of those with Phenylketonuria (PKU).
