Bicoastal Mexican/Italian actor, writer and filmmaker
Adriana DeGirolami is from Chicago, [the city, not a suburb - an important distinction]. She is an honors graduate of NYU’s Tisch drama program through the Atlantic Theater Company where she was fortunate enough to train under the leadership of William H. Macy and David Mamet.
Her numerous television appearances include recurring roles on Nurse Jackie and Red Oaks as well as guest starring roles on Law & Order: SVU and Bull. She is also featured in supporting roles for Sundance darlings James White and Anthony Mandler’s upcoming Monster.
In addition to her acting work, Adriana is an avid writer and director. Her short film Pat and Penelope made its world premiere at London’s Vault Film Festival in 2017. She also co-created and directed the online sensation Abuela Votes! with the generous support of Ghetto Film School and Warrior Poets. She is currently developing the upcoming comedic series Paco Takes On, feature film La Costa, and feature-length adaptation of NYC Fringe Festival winner The More Loving One.
Other passions include sharing her plentiful feelings through overly-expressive hand gestures and reading people’s astrological charts for them whether or not they’ve asked for it. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her Cuban sweetheart, their kitten Paloma, and an ever-expanding number of plants that are - amazingly - still alive.
