My name is Amelia Sorensen, and I was born and raised the pacific northwest in a town called Ashland, Oregon. I started taking improv classes during the summer when I was seven years old, and my love for acting quickly grew to a year-round affair. I've now been acting for 14 years, starting with improv and comedy, and moving into musicals and more dramatic roles as I grew older.
I moved to New York City in early 2018, and have been living here ever since. I started taking classes, auditioning, meeting new people, and being more creative than I ever planned and it has been such an adventure.
I am proud of how far I've come, and excited by how far I have to go.
Why I Perform
I'm so excited to get to do the work that I love on a day to day basis. Whether it's auditions, rehearsal, shoots, editing, or just reading scripts and practicing lines, I'm in love with every part.
Moving my career forward has been a challenge, to be sure. But I love the work, and I'm committed to my passion. Digging into yourself to find the honesty in projects is unbelievably rewarding.
