Heather Olsen (she/hers) is a NYC based actor and singer. Born and raised in Staten Island, she is a proud native New Yorker. She holds a BFA in Acting and Musical Theatre from Marymount Manhattan College.
Since graduating, she’s been fortunate enough to take classes at T. Schreiber Studio and MN Studio, as well as have a hand in several projects, most notably creating web series End of Day with her friends at Parent Productions (now in pre-production for it's 2nd season).
Known for her fun-sized stature, gigantic baby-blues and even bigger personality, Heather’s got Disney princess eyes with a saucy New York attitude. She’s a modern-day Midge Maisel mixed with a streetwise Rory Gilmore. When she’s not busy pursuing her main goal of taking over the universe, Heather can be found watching Friends reruns, hunting for the perfect New York slice, and taking selfies with neighborhood bodega cats.
In the words of William Shakespeare,
"though she be but little, she is fierce."
