Nili Bassman's credits include Broadway, television, film, print, commercials, concerts, industrials, and theaters across the United States. She has been honored to work with and learn from many brilliant directors including Marshall Mason, Sally Field, Scott Ellis, Michael Grief, Hugh Wilson, Tony Walton, Gabe Barre, Phil Morrison, and more. Born in North Carolina and raised in the suburbs of Washington DC, Nili grew up in a very musical home. She began studying piano and dance at the age of 5, inspired most by the classic Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and Gene Kelly films. A few years later, her dance teacher recommended Nili enroll in an acting class to combat her shyness. From that first class, Nili was hooked. She acted and danced professionally in the DC area throughout middle school and high school, and went on to earn her BFA in Theatre at Point Park University. Nili now makes her home in NYC area with her husband, Erik, and their two young children. On the side, she is a songwriter, author, wildflower gatherer, and amateur pescatarian chef/baker. She is a frequenter of neighborhood toddler storytime classes and a big fan of 'old fashioned' pen-to-paper handwritten communication.
