DEANNA RUSSO MAKES A DUMB FACE WHEN SHE DANCES.
And she loves oversized hoodies.
Deanna Russo began acting at a young age in local theatre in Chester, New Jersey. She appeared in The Growing Stage’s production of Pinocchio and Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at their original location in the Williamson School Building.
While studying psychology at Rollins College in Florida, Russo booked her first national commercial. She soon relocated to Los Angeles where she first appeared on a television series in Charmed as a gypsy midwife. She then moved into voiceover work for children’s animation and is featured in two Disney adaptations of Hayao Miyazaki films. Russo also had a successful modeling career that only spanned two years.
In 2007, Russo won the award for Best Director at the New Orleans Film Festival for her short, Taste of Kream. She also directed and produced two seasons of a web series for Funny or Die called Real Life with Married People. She studied improv and sketch writing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater where she still periodically performs.
Russo currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children and writes autobiographical essays and unsold pilots.
