Lynsey Harris first drew attention to herself by performing in front of the curtain at the Camera 7 movie house in Los Gatos, CA. The scattered applause and embarrassed laughter went straight to her head, and two decades later she headed to Los Angeles to make a name for herself. With the unbeatable combination of a degree in theatre performance from SDSU, long legs and a metro pass, she started traveling and working right away.
Her love of red velvet curtains made theatre her first home, and she aced parts in Fluffy Bunnies in a Field of Daisies, The Importance of Being Earnest, One Night Stands, and Play It Again, Sam. Two years ago she co-created One Cent Pictures and wrote, produced and starred in her own web series, Penny, Urned. She is currently in pre-production for her next online endeavor, Spanks.
Recently Lynsey has been cast in a variety of projects, including sketch comedy (Patriots & Porridge), psychological thrillers, (Room 13) and independent features (S.T. 2.0). She is also continuing to appear as a student at UCB and Lesly Kahn & Company, and is an active participant in the S.A.G. Conservatory program.
While nothing in Los Angeles has replicated that early experience at the Camera 7, she maintains a childlike optimism that it is only a matter of time. She also still enjoys cupcakes, dressing up and taking down all the kids at dodgeball.
