Working Actor

Brie Eley is a classically-trained actress and content creator from Sugar Land, Texas.
After studying at the British American Drama Academy’s Midsummer program at Oxford University, she earned her degree in Theater and Arts Administration from Marymount Manhattan College. Upon graduation, she worked in marketing at Second Stage while acting onstage in New York City and regionally. Her growing interest in on-camera work, improvisation and production led her to act in and produce the award-winning film We are the Hartmans. The film was an early crowd-funding success acquired by Netflix when they still sending out DVD’s.

Seduced by closet space and sunshine, she relocated to Los Angeles and quickly booked tv (2 Broke Girls, Grey’s Anatomy,) and continued to act onstage. Currently, Brie can be heard narrating The High Republic digital series for STAR WARS and seen in commercials for Ross, Geico, OnStar, and Pizza Hut. You can also watch her on the Saved by the Bell reboot and season 4 of Atypical.

Along the way, she also started Here and Ready, a private collective supporting more than 1,100 Black actresses across the US and Canada. In 2020, Here and Ready began producing educational seminars, hosting networking events for the Casting Society of America and launched a talent database website, which is free to access. This year, Here and Ready launched their consulting arm for anyone who wants to be here and ready, too.
