Actor. Improviser. Your New Best Friend.
“Yours are Mine” is Brooke’s official directorial debut which has begun it's film festival circuit with multiple nominations, and winning "Best Director" & "Powerful Voice" Awards. Brooke has been acting her entire life, studying at the British American Drama Academy and she received her BFA in Acting from Illinois Wesleyan University. After falling in love with improvisation in the eighth grade, she went on to study at Second City, UCB, iO and Groundlings. Her last short film “Night Four” toured the world in the festival circuit, premiering at the esteemed Outfest in Los Angeles. She takes pride in her versatility as a filmmaker and writer: while “Yours are Mine” is filled with heavy doses of pulling-at-the-heartstrings, her latest series Botanical Baes was just featured in The Los Angeles Times. Brooke is honored to share her story with the community, and is passionate and determined to continue to lift women up in the entertainment industry. (www.brooketrantor.com)
