Kally was born in Chicago, Illinois and spent most of her childhood in Florida when her family moved to Boca Raton in 1998. Her passion for the performing arts was sparked by a school field trip to a TYA performance of a retelling of “Rapunzel,” where she made two very important discoveries. One, girls can in fact grow up to be princesses. Two, there exists a real-life job where people act stories out for a living.
At age 10 she landed the role of Dorothy in her first play, “The Wizard of Oz,” which marked the beginning of her theatrical adventures. Throughout middle and high school she took part in several in-school and extracurricular opportunities to study acting, singing, dance, and martial arts. In 9th grade she was one of 52 nationwide winners of the Bravo On With The Show essay-writing contest and won a trip to New York for three days of workshops, rehearsals, and a musical revue performance at the Imperial Theatre on Broadway.
In 2007 Kally earned two talent scholarships to attend Indian River State College, where she earned her A.A. Theatre Performance degree before pursuing additional studies at Florida Atlantic University and the University of Central Florida. During her collegiate years she was cast in a number of student and independent film projects, and she has thoroughly enjoyed working both onstage and onscreen ever since. Her additional training includes film acting, voice acting, combat for stage and screen, and several movement forms (various dance styles, martial arts, physical theatre).
Kally is based in Los Angeles and enjoys hiking, writing haikus, playing Magic the Gathering, skipping steps, and blowing bubbles through the straw when no one is looking.
