Faryl Amadeus is a director, writer, and actor living in Los Angeles.
A native New Yorker (adopted and shipped from Kentucky, like a box of whiskey,) Faryl received a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts' Experimental Theater Wing, where she learned to integrate story, performance, and visual art.
Originally a dancer with the Joffrey Ballet, she switched course after being accepted into the famed LaGuardia High School, majoring in Visual Art and Drama.
While still in school, She originated the role of Bill Gates in the musical Nerds, and following a collaboration with performance artist David Cale, she originated the role of Clea in the world premier of Floyd and Clea Under The Western Sky at the Goodman theater in Chicago.
Faryl has worked alongside such legends as Julie Taymor, Lynne Ramsay and Kathleen Turner.
She is the creator, writer, director and star of the TV show: Fancy Nancy's Funny Hour, and was featured as one of Paper magazine's Most Beautiful People.
Faryl's debut short, Mary Meet Grace (filmed, during the 2020 pandemic), is a nod to the birthmother she was reunited with as an adult, and an exploration of what lengths an adoptee might go to to discover who and where they come from.
Faryl is currently developing two features, and three TV drama pilots.
