Name: Gail Silver
Lives in: Los Angeles, California
Occupation: Actor, Acting Teacher, Marketing/pr, Casting Director, Director and Singer
Unique traits: Acted in Yiddish at age 5 for adult audiences. Throughout my childhood, my family moved frequently to various cities and towns in the USA where my sister, Suzie, and I were the only Jews attending public schools in the area. We always returned to Chicago, Illinois, where Suzie and I would then attend a private Hebrew Parochial School (half-day Hebrew, half-day English). Went to Catholic women's college for a year: Was the nuns' pet, because my father was a Rabbi. Now, I'm most comfortable and happy with a Diverse group of humans in my private and professional Life! I'm passionate about Theatre, All Film Genres, the Acting Craft, and am the best Audience Member ever and Cheerleader to other artists. I've been a theatre usher since age 13 and find the empty stage and theatre before a play begins -- thrilling! Watching the crew move props/furniture, sound and light checks, actors rehearsing onstage before the show, it's all MAGIC to me -- even after all these years of being an Actor! xoxo
