Hey, I'm Isabella Jane!

New York, New York

Hey! I'm Isabella Jane Schiller and I'm a New York born, bred, and based actor and creator. 

When not acting, I work as a general manager and producer, am a core member of theater company The Skeleton Rep, and serve on the board of the award-winning Jezebel Productions, the longest-running, indie women-focused film company.

I love garlic (and potatoes) maybe more than most things, I'm a life-long avid traveler, and die-hard lover of cats (in spite of a small little allergy to them).
