Hey, I'm Heather!

Savannah, Georgia

I've studied at Rose Bruford College in London, England, then moved to NYC where I studied at the Meisner Technique at The Neighborhood Playhouse, and performed on stage in off-broadway plays like ‘Barefoot in the Park’ and ‘Key Exchange.’ 

 

Currently residing in Atlanta. I've starred in the post-Civil War indie feature 'Blood Country.' I just filmed a supporting role in Aaron Eckhart's new film "Live" with Ben McKenzie (Lead from TV Show 'Gotham').

 

I've been nominated and won awards for Best Actress & Best Film for my first two films.
I founded my own production company, Badb Films, inc (Pronounced Bah-v, derived from the Irish Goddess), and has one film in Post-Production, two films in pre-production, and 3 scripts in-development- to tell the stories that are dimensional and give voice to those who've been left unheard for too long.

 

I have performed stunts on 'The Gifted,' 'The Walking Dead,' and 'NCIS: NO,' I wrote, produced and starred in my first period piece 'Her Calling' which has been officially selected several film festivals around the country and is on Amazon Prime, now.

 

I just finished the lead role in John Patrick Shanley's 'the dreamer examines his pillow,' on stage in Atlanta.
