welcome! And congratulations for steering clear of the Erin Hunter Warrior Cat fan sites!
An actor from Los Angeles, Erin is a rare creature (like the pink fairy armadillo!) She trained at UCLA and LAMDA and spent a study year abroad at Trinity College Dublin where she was devastated to discovered her Irish name is only found on packets of instant soup.
An experienced stage actor, Erin is currently touring her debut one woman show, Surfing the Holyland about the mad Middle East, surfing and survival which has been called "a virtuoso performance" and "full of sparkle, talent, humour" and "amazing" by audiences. In it, she plays 12 different characters at breakneck pace, surfs on moving boxes and strums four original comedy ukulele songs, through quirky storytelling and sharp observational comedy. It's had performances in London, Los Angeles and will tour to Tel Aviv this autumn with more UK dates being announced soon!
Erin has trotted the globe performing in over 50 plays in London, Dublin, New York and Los Angeles. In London, Erin has performed at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Soho Theatre, Bush Theatre, Southwark Playhouse and Arcola among others. She was nominated for a Best Actress award for her role as Kate in web series A Quick Fortune at the Bilbao Festival.
Erin has performed in two runs of the world’s longest running sketch comedy show, Newsrevue. With a focus on British news, it’s no surprise that Erin is one of the only Americans cast. Ever. But please don’t ask her to do Glaswegian because it won’t be pretty.
Other credits include comedy foil Stephano in an adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest with renowned theatre-makers Teatro Vivo; mockumentary The Potential Wives of Prince Harry written by Tracy Ullman staff writer, Brona C Titley; and the UK premiere of dark American play Companion Piece with Concorde Theatre. She’s worked with acclaimed physical theatre ensembles Tangled Feet and Firehouse Productions.
Erin is ½ of Hunt the Vigan, the world’s funniest comedy duo (according to their mothers.) Creators of viral comedy parenting video Boobies in a Box, it has amassed a whopping 8 million views and been featured in global press including The Huffington Post who called it “hilarious” and Upworthy to name a few. The pair originally united to create a retro screwball comedy web series, A Quick Fortune, which was selected for 10 global festivals including Raindance. It won a screenwriting award at the DC Web Fest and was nominated for multiple awards; they have signed the series with distributor, Screenhits. Working with international partners, the wacky duo are currently developing several TV pilots and regularly release comedy sketches on their Facebook page and Youtube channel.
Erin is also a busy voice over artist who's worked on everything from high profile TV and radio commercials to video games, audiobooks, animation and regular TV promos. She is currently working on comedy ukulele songs about that complicated beast - parenthood.
Erin has extensive dance training including eleven years of ballet (think Black Swan minus the schizophrenia and death) plus a sprinkling of other styles including African, swing, contemporary, jazz and capoiera.
Erin has recently taken up surfing... and if they ever do an all female remake of Point Break, she's you're woman! She also has a slightly unhealthy obsession with French Bulldogs, the asthmatic clowns of the dog world. Look at you - making it to the bitter end. Time for a well deserved glass of vino, even if its 8am, I won't say a word!
