Film & Stage Actor
Ali Axelrad is a stage & screen actress, who most recently appeared in David Fincher's
ten-time-Academy Award nominated film Mank, opposite Gary Oldman & Amanda Seyfried.
Her entire life was shaped at four years when she saw Beauty & the Beast on Broadway. Walking out of the theater after the show she turned to her mother & said "I want to do that".
She made her stage debut later that year and has been a theater rat ever since.
Some of her most treasured career highlights are playing Wendy Darling opposite Tony Nominee Jenn Colella in Peter Pan at the Stephen Sondheim Center, appearing Los Angele's regional premiere of Ragtime, and rubbing elbows with the life-and-death-brigade boys in Netflix's Gilmore Girls: A Year in The Life. in omnia paratus!
She lent her singing voice to Yamaha's recording of The Sound of Music and can be heard on John Bucchino's 2012 single of "Grateful", which proceeds benefited victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Her passion for performing is only matched by her devotion to working with the specially abled community ; specifically teaching yoga to children with special needs. She is certified to teach through Yoga For the Special Child, Om Schooled, & Yoga to the People. Her greatest wish is to help make space for vulnerability in the world with both her yoga practice and story telling.
She splits her time between LA & NYC,
with her toothless cat Turnip, Pomeranian Bearishnikov, and her muggle-husband.
