2014 Workshop/Guest Speaker – Alexis Nichols

AlexisAlexis Nichols is a versatile actor, voiceover talent, and model whose young career promises great things. She is most noted for appearing as Lucille Ball in “Becoming Lucy” which premiered at the Festival De Cannes Court Metráge in May of 2013.  “Becoming Lucy” also traveled through India with the Jagran International Film Festival where it was nominated for Best Short Film.  With the film’s ongoing success, Alexis will be a guest speaker at the ITSA Film Festival in Sonora, CA in November 2014 where “Lucy” is an official selection. She was included in a panel of industry professionals for the “Lady Filmmaker’s Luncheon” with the Chesapeake Film Festival which also featured the film.  In the upcoming year, “Becoming Lucy” will continue traveling and screen in Singapore with the Jump The Cut Film Festival.

No stranger to biopics, Alexis also played Dorothy Parker in North Hollywood’s theatrical production of An Evening with Dottie, where she balanced comedy and drama while mastering both the mannerisms and motivations of one of the century’s most interesting figures.  Critics deemed her portrayal “divine” and her New York parlor accent “convincing” and “true”.  She also recently appeared as Sheila in Neil Simon’s Jake’s Women, part of a showcase directed by Academy Award nominee Brenda Vaccarro, as well as in several recent and ongoing film projects.

Alexis received her MFA in Acting for Film from the New York Film Academy.  She trained at the Yale Summer Actors Conservatory and the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts Summer Program. She also spent time studying at the University of Oxford, performing with the Oxford University Light Entertainment Society.

While in New York City, Alexis proved both her comedic and dramatic abilities, appearing on stage in Something Outrageous at the Michael Chekhov 45th St. Theatre and another Neil Simon play Rumors at the Mount Carmel Theatre Co. She also added several film credits to her resume, including lead roles in Mary Jane’s Last Dance, Details, and Vicky Karma.

Not content with just stage and screen acting, Alexis has also built a name for herself as both a voiceover talent and model. Within the last few years, she has recorded over 100numerous voiceover spots, including national and regional commercials for Dick’s Sporting Goods, Disney’s Aulani Resort, QVC, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and Sesame Street’s Sesame Place Theme Park.  She has also recorded numerous audio books and book trailers.

Alexis’ modeling work is equally varied. She has appeared in print, online, and on the runway as a fashion model, pinup girl, and, most recently, as a gothic beauty in Petite Alternative.  A nationally and internationally published model, she has also appeared in Vogue Italia, Maxim.com, Car Kulture Deluxe Magazine, Spain’s La Revista Shock, Retro Lovely, and Primer Round publications.

Alexis plans to continue taking on challenging and inspiring projects in all three veins: acting, modeling, and voiceovers. She is particularly focusing on acting in television series and feature films, expanding into new modeling genres, and recording voiceovers for animation and video games. She looks forward to continuing her journey as an artist and building upon the success she has already enjoyed.

Alexis continues taking on roles and projects that challenge and inspire her.  She plans to continue and expand work in all three veins-acting, modeling, and voice overs.  Eventually, Alexis would like to work as a series regular on a popular television show where she could further develop her acting chops and continue to build a character over time.  Modeling wise, Alexis aims to achieve more magazine covers and take on even more varied looks and genres.  She treats modeling as “still frame acting”, an attempt to capture an emotion in one shot.  She hopes to develop her voice over career to include animation and work on cartoons and video games. Alexis looks forward to her journey as a professional actor and is ready to work and find her own way as an artist: be it as a film or television actress, theatrical performer, voice-over artist, and model, she welcomes the challenges that lie ahead.
