NANCY POP is a Romanian-American actress, producer, and writer from Reghin, currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. She and her family immigrated to Erie, PA before settling in Bentonville, Arkansas in 2005, where she began acting and writing in short sketches and regional theater competitions. The budding film community in Northwest Arkansas jumpstarted her passion for visual storytelling and inspired her move to NYC in 2013.
Pop graduated from Marymount Manhattan College with a B.A. in Theatre Performance and Playwriting, in addition to training with The Second City (Chicago), Magnet Theatre (NYC), Berg Studios (Los Angeles), and Pacific Performance Project East.
Film and TV credits include Law & Order SVU, Tinderella, Origin, Moderngrumble, The Night Danny Got His Revenge, and Neapolitan.
As the Managing Director at The Theater Collective, Pop produces theatrical works with the goal of uplifting marginalized voices at a grassroots level. She hosts "In Cold Read", a monthly cold reading workshop series at Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers dedicated to cultivating a trusted community for writers and actors to share and practice their craft in a collaborative setting.
Most recently, Pop finished production on her feature film, Poets Are The Destroyers, which she directed and produced. Currently she is producing the new fantasy feature film “The Molok” and starring in an independent horror feature film by Will Benson.
You can listen to the soothing nature of her voice anytime as the voice of Ruth Moriarty/Janice Tomlinson on Breaking Walls Presents: A Man Named Marlowe, available wherever you get your podcast fix.
