Rebecca began her professional acting career at 19 in the theaters of NYC. She soon landed the title role in The Tinsley Bumble Show, a comedy series for the Women’s Entertainment Channel. Not long after the show wrapped, Rebecca decided to make the journey westward to Los Angeles where, together with her friend and writing partner Annie Mebane, she started Little Ventures Productions. Their first little venture, She Always Told Me, an original one-act play written by Mebane, ran for a successful 15 weeks to critical acclaim. She also stars in the LVP produced Easy Bake Lovin‘, a comedy web series. Around Los Angeles, Rebecca has received rave reviews for her performances in Zanna Don’t (a 2008 LADCC winner), learned sign language for the musical Pippin, a co-production between Center Theatre Group and Deaf West Theatre as well as the anniversary production of DWT’s Children of a Lesser God. Rebecca has Guest-Starred on ABC’s The Middle and FX’s Anger Management, was recently seen on NBC’s Community and as Esme in the Lionsgate Twilight spoof movie, Breaking Wind. She can be seen in the WB.com series, Downer’s Grove as well as the hit comedy webseries Video Game Reunion. Rebecca co-stars as Ruby in the musical comedy web-series Coco & Ruby, which also tours as a live show in and around Los Angeles. In the summer of 2013 she received rave reviews in the world premiere of Falling For Make Believe, a story of Rodgers & Hart, at The Colony Theatre and starred as Elizabeth in MTW’s recent production of Young Frankenstein. Most recently, she starred in the Rubicon Theatre’s world premiere of Little Miss Scrooge, a re-telling of the classic Dickens tale, playing the titular character Estella Scrooge. Rebecca enjoys gardening, vintage clothes and baking delicious cheesecakes.
