Nili Bassman is a New York City based actress whose 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 playing piano and dancing 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 help her combat her shyness. From that first class, Nili was hooked. She acted 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 Manhattan with her husband, Erik, and their two young children. On the side, she is a songwriter, author, wildflower gatherer, and amateur vegan (well pescatarian) chef/baker. She is a frequenter of neighborhood toddler music/dance/storytime classes and a big fan of 'old fashioned' pen-to-paper handwritten communication.
