ELLA SMITH

WRITER // “MARGOT”

Ella had her first taste of The Stage when she was five years old (she played a mouse in Cinderella) and hasn’t been able to get enough of it ever since. After many career-defining roles (including a Munchkin and Jitterbug Dancer #2), Ella felt ready to head to New York to attend NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts to study drama. It was here in NYC that she also fell in love with comedy.

She has studied improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade and in 2017 wrote and starred in a comedic short film titled Period about...well you can guess… Favorite credits include Jackie Coryton (Hay Fever), Chicklet (Psycho Beach Party), Juliet (Romeo and Juliet: Choose Your Own Ending), Sylvia (Two Gentlemen of Verona), and Luciana (The Comedy of Errors). TV: Pose/Season 1, The Deuce/Season 3.

When not acting, Ella can be found teaching acting classes at Rikers Island Correctional Facility and trying to pick herself out in the extras’ scenes in major network TV shows.
