Director Biography - Anastasia Eremenko-Berg


Anastasia Eremenko-Berg was born in Rostov-na-Donu, Russia in 1980. She was raised in the intensive performing art culture of the Soviet Union. At the age of six, she began gymnastics, theater, and classical piano performance training which would eventually lead to a profession in piano teaching. Growing up as an only child with an active imagination, she loved participating in every school play and drama project.
As a young girl and teenager, Anastasia always loved showing off in front of the camera, and early on formed a dream of becoming a professional actress. In 1999 she began modeling with the Image-Elite modeling agency in Russia, where she did numerous modeling jobs and garnered the 'Finalist Best Commercial Model, South-Russia' award.
In 2003 Anastasia married her husband Charlie, and moved with him to the United States. In 2012 she had the opportunity to take acting classes with award-winning acting coach John Pallotta in Washington, D.C. where they were living. Six month later she and her husband moved to New York City, where she continues to take classes and actively pursue her career in acting.
In 2014 Anastasia appeared in such productions as National Geographic Brain Games, Investigation Discovery ID, Russian Cable TV, Fox Channel, and the Oxygen Network.

In 2015 Anastasia started teaching acting classes at John Pallotta studio of Acting, where John introduced her: "Honored again as one of our own, set to teach her first intensive. Anastasia Eremenko-Berg came to me years ago, green, entering the world as an actor. Next week she is set to teach for the very first time. Come show your support if you are around.".... -John Pallotta.
