My name is Leah Harvey, and I’m a recently graduated BFA in Acting student at Northern Illinois University. At NIU, I was trained in the Meisner acting method, Michael Chekhov and Williamson movement training, along with Fitzmaurice voice work. Our program also focuses on extensive work in heightened text and period style training and on camera acting.
However, when I’m not acting you can find me binge-watching a crime drama with my cat and a cold beer, or exploring a new restaurant with my husband (we got married in May, so excuse me while I am still all in my feelings about it).
When I look at the work I am passionate about, I find myself drawn to truth, but also something that brings new perspective and life to all who experience it. Sanford Meisner said, “life beats us down and crushes our souls, and theatre reminds us that we have one.” I am passionate about work that reveals our souls, calling for empathy from those around us.
