NANCY POP is a Romanian-American actress and filmmaker from Reghin, currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. She and her family immigrated to Erie, PA and eventually settled in Bentonville, Arkansas, where she began acting and writing in short sketches, regional theater competitions, and local films. 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, and has trained 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.
POP 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 William Benson.
