UPDATE: Colleen just signed with Felix Tipper of JLA Talent!
As a shy Japanese American girl growing up, Colleen Parker imagined from a young age that she'd be an actress even if she was too shy to tell that to anyone for years. She was fascinated by stories and being able to put herself in "other people's shoes". She would lie in bed at night, as a child, pretending to be Helen Keller after watching the Miracle Worker, imagining and trying to empathize with being blind.
Her ability to dive into challenging roles that sometimes ran contrary to her quiet personality surprised her peers, often eliciting comments like "I didn't know you could do that!". Rather than be insulted, Colleen realized how gratifying it was that she could blow people's expectations out of the water and thus established herself as a brilliant dramatic actress with layers of depth. Her inspirations are varied and eclectic ranging from, but not limited to, Eckhart Tolle to Harry Potter, The Station Agent to The Gilmore Girls. But by far, her greatest inspiration comes from love and beauty specifically from the love and beauty of her loves, Leia and Joe.
Colleen lives in Los Angeles and enjoys reading, yoga, meditation, walking, coffee (especially at Border Grill Stop or Babycakes or Blue Cafe L.A.!) and eating popcorn...lots and lots of popcorn.
