Half Russian and raised in gorgeous Ithaca, NY, Dasha was performing for her family of PhDs well before they could seduce her into the world of academia. She's had a lot training but it was only while earning her BFA at NYU’s Meisner Extension that she found a grounding sense of honesty in her process and performance. An ingénue with an edge, she is often cast as the free spirit, mean girl, or femme fatale and enjoys playing these strong female characters. She recently was on 'Nurse Jackie' opposite Edie Falco and shot a small role in "My Man is a Loser" with Michael Rapaport and John Stamos but fresh out of NYU she booked her first audition playing the slightly-too-method actress Cindy Pickles in the independent feature “Maggie Marvel”. Since then she’s acted in many more films, commercials, music videos, webseries and sketches. Dasha just moved to LA in July to further pursue acting and makeup design for film and TV projects.
