MFA in Acting, The Juilliard School
BA in Text and Performance, Vassar College
Originally from Cleveland, OH, Gwendolyn got her BA from Vassar College in a multidisciplinary major called “Text and Performance,” and her MFA from Juilliard (Group 45). Favorite theater credits include the world premiere of Still by Jen Silverman, and Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia. Between college and graduate school, she was an Acting Apprentice at the Actor’s Theatre of Louisville where she was in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, A Christmas Carol, and Heist!, an immersive theater piece for the Humana Festival.
After graduating from Juilliard, Gwendolyn made her television debut in Emmy-nominated Genius as Young Elsa Einstein. This past year you might have seen her as Martha Gellhorn in The First Lady or Julia Swanstrom in The Endgame. Other TV credits include Sink Sank Sunk, Blue Bloods, FBI: Most Wanted, and Madam Secretary.
Gwendolyn absolutely loves coaching young artists with MTCA, and believes the essential nature of the performing arts is one where intergenerational dialogue strengthens the artistic point of view of both coach and student. She sees herself as the beneficiary of extraordinary guidance over the years, and relishes the opportunity to pass it on.
