Deena Eddy
  Deena Eddy, cousin to the late Nelson Eddy, began her career at the early age of eight. A proud member of SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors’ Guild – American Federation of Television & Radio Artists) and AEA (Actors’ Equity Association), she cherishes every moment on stage and screen. She truly believes we all have a path in life to follow, as long as you have the strength, courage and tenacity to do so.

As a young girl her first love was Broadway. Ms. Eddy credits her mother for allowing her to follow that dream, supporting her training, and dedicating countless hours with Agents, Managers, auditions, rehearsals and performances. At the age of ten she was cast in the title role of Annie in Broadway’s National tour. Due to the non-availability of Adult supervision on the road, the role was refused on her behalf. Heartbroken, she learned early the business is not all roses or easy steps. She also learned that having been offered such an iconic and demanding role meant that she was on the right path.

As an adult she has performed Off-Broadway, in top Regional houses across the country, cruise ships, and in film/TV. Some of her favorite roles include: Jekyll & Hyde (Emma, Directed by Tony nominee, Drama Desk winner, Robert Cuccioli), The Fantasticks (Luisa), The Rise of David Levinsky (Dora), Oklahoma! (Laurey), and Candide (Cunegonde). She has recorded music obtained directly from top Broadway Composers/Lyricists, majority of the pieces are not in print, many she is the sole artist to have a recording available for the public to hear. Ms. Eddy covets her training, the belief that we can never learn enough, and the importance of Professionalism. She has trained extensively in all mediums (Acting for Stage & Screen, Musical Theatre, Opera/Operetta & Dance). When she is not performing she is most often found rehearsing and training with New York City’s best either at Kimball Studios, the most recommended studio by top Casting Directors, continuing her on-camera training in their top-level classes, with a vocal coach, or in a recording studio. She holds dear the support of her family, especially her mother and loving husband. When not performing she loves spending time with her husband, Brian, and their two dogs, Golden Retriever, Crystal, and rescued White German Shepherd, Jack, as well as photography, visiting historical sites, natural wonders or beaches, and enjoying her Swarovski crystal collection. She holds a BA with an Area Studies major in Theatre, Music, and English from Rollins College.

In life we are all equal. We’ve all been blessed with gifts. How we use them and how hard we are willing to work to be worthy of them is up to each of us.
