About Diana

I like to joke that I was “meant to be an actress” because she entered the world in high dramatic fashion. My doctors worked on me for 45 minutes before I started breathing on my own. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy (which mildly affects my speech and gait) around age 2, I grew up conquering adversity and not letting anything stop her from pursuing her dream of being an actress. My life experiences have given me a rich emotional well to infuse into every role I play





I’ve wanted to be an actress ever since can I remember and I made a decision at an early age, that I wouldn’t let adversity stand in the way of me pursuing my goal. I have worked in theater, film and television and was the first actress with a disability (mild cerebral palsy) to obtain a Masters of Fine Arts in Acting from California State University Long Beach.

In my everyday life I am a daughter, aunt (to the two most adorable boys on the planet) friend, and co-worker. I choose to be an actress on my REAL LIFE so I can have the opportunity to portray strong and complex women in my REEL LIVES (juror, neighbor, patient, space alien….) where my disability is incidental to the character or storyline. I am committed as an actress to adding another dimension to the diverse images of the multicultural American Scene.


I believe as an actress (who also embraces not being 29) I have something very unique to bring to the diversity table should the right role come along. I also invite you to visit my website www.dianaelizabethjordan.com . Thank you for your time and consideration.
I am a member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA

  • Brad's Untitled Restaurant Project

    Brad's Untitled Restaurant Project (2014)
    Film (Comedy) Actress 'Brad's Untitled...' is a wild comedy that is really 8 films in one. It all takes place in a restaurant in a twenty-minute real time. However, during each section we see the other films in the background. With a rewind and a time stamp, we see how the background of one film becomes the lead of another over 90 minutes. The style is built by using one main camera and a dozen hidden cameras that creates a truly unique tapestry of visual storytelling. It all ties together when the audience learns that one person set all of this up for a very funny, but cruel practical joke. It was shot in 3 days for $15K, using 5 diverse directors and the actors from PAI Training. Written by Anonymous
