Allana Matheis became SAG-Eligible with her role as Geneva on CBS’ Pink Collar Crimes. She was recently honored by the TVolution Awards for her lead performance as Cassandra in the world premiere of The Masher for the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2019. Stage is a major part of her background including a minor in Theater at the University of California, Riverside where she received her B.A. Since moving to Los Angeles she has studied at Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop, Second City, and The Groundlings. She trained in competitive dance from the age of 3 where she found her love for tap dance. That love led to 15 years of practice and performance. These last few years have been an evolution in her motivation for acting. What once was a desire to hide behind characters has changed into finding comfort in vulnerability. She has grown in her ability to develop characters while collaborating in the creative vision. It’s now a pursuit in taking risks while creating powerful art that will open people’s perspectives.
