A little bit about Rebecca...
Rebecca Merle is a warm, spirited, and versatile performer with deep sensitivity and a clever wit that make her distinctive. Born and raised in the Midwest, she began performing in Equity theaters as a young child. Her childhood was complex providing the innate impetus for creativity. When she discovered the performing arts, improvisation, and writing, she had a wonderful place to share these complexities. Her work and interests would later grow to include painting, photography, film & video, and music, where the result is more about process for Rebecca.
As a performer, camaraderie comes naturally; Rebecca sees work with other artists as an opportunity for creative synergy. She knows many wonderful faces both behind and in front of the camera from her work in film, television, and commercials throughout New York and on the East coast over the years and is as comfortable working on city streets as in the studio. She is, also, continually writing - jokes, anecdotes, lyrics, and poems, as well as concocting ideas for development into larger bodies of work.
Rebecca is grateful to live among the culture of New York City. Between projects, she's busy reading, writing, singing, dancing, painting, drawing, mingling, generating new ideas, experiencing new work, exploring the city, silently observing, and, when possible, enjoying the peace & quiet of solitude. Rebecca has a deep desire to give hope to people of all walks of life whether by giving a much needed laugh, by creating empathy through her roles, and especially through opportunities that give tools for individual and community empowerment.
Her volunteer experiences include child literacy programs - SAG-AFTRA Foundation's BookPALS program for underserved communities & PencilPALS. She would like to acknowledge the generous impact of NYPL libraries on her growth and development as a person and artist.
It takes a lot of positive people for an artist to exist & grow, so thank you very much for stopping by. Your support is genuinely acknowledged and appreciated!
