Well, hello there.


My name is Deanna Russo. You may remember me from such television programs as Burning Love, Being Human, Knight Rider 2008, and Two and a Half Men. No? Not to worry. I've appeared in over one hundred episodes of TV so I'm sure you've seen me somewhere.

I first began acting when I was eight-years-old doing local theatre in Chester, New Jersey. I moved into the on-camera scene while I was studying psychology at Rollins College in Florida. There, I booked my first national commercial and became SAG eligible. I figured if I could find TV/film work in Orlando, surely I had to try my luck in Los Angeles. So my mom paid for my union membership as my graduation present, and off I went to California. Within a few months, I appeared in Charmed as a gypsy midwife.


But wait, there's more. In 2007, I won the award for Best Director at the New Orleans Film Festival for my mockumentary, Taste of Kream. I later directed and produced two seasons of a web series for Funny or Die called Real Life with Married People. Most recently, passion finds me writing television and film. 

The last few years of my life have been the most formative as I made two human beings with my body and came out as queer. Visibility is crucial to the LGBTQ+ community, and I'm proud to be a part of it. Life is wild. Can't wait to see what else it brings.
