2016 Best Lead Actress – Short: AS LIFE SHIFTS
International Filmmaker Festival of World Cinema BERLIN
Sass isn’t her middle name, it’s her maiden name. And her nickname. And her second dog’s name. Also a little something she’s pretty good at conveying through the camera.
After a dozen years in the Sports Marketing industry, and a change in her last name, Felicia entered the industry at the prompting of her daughter’s commercial agent. Ten years later she has a varied and full resume (and another daughter).
Most recently she has had Co-Star roles in House of Cards, Homeland, Spielberg’s The Post, and leading roles in independent films As Life Shifts and North of the City.
In addition to theatrical roles, you’ve seen her in commercials for Ronzoni, Nickelodeon and Delta, print advertisements for Disney and L’Oreal, and as herself on Dr. Oz, The Chew and Wendy Williams. Hosting clients include CafeMom.com, Crunch Gym, Lodgenet Television, and Brickhouse Security. Voice over clients include The Smithsonian, American Express Major League Baseball, and the NHL.
Booked most often as a ‘mom,’ ‘business woman,’ ‘housewife,’ and ‘cougar,’ Felicia enjoys playing every film, commercial, print and VO role to its fullest. Especially ones where she can bring the sass.
In 2018, Felicia will be co-producing her first feature film – it’s based-on-a-true-story about human trafficking in the US. You can learn more about it at www.GoodGirlsGoneFilm.com
When not on-screen or behind the camera, Felicia stays busy with her two daughters, and running Grandpa Dave’s Creature Comforts, a small non-profit that benefits NYC shelter animals. She also partners with Casting Director Jen Halpern to produce the RescueMen USA charity calendar.
