I have two brilliant friends who run a satirical blog called Hackstage, about all things acting related. It's super funny and sometimes they let me guest contribute. I wrote this mockumentary with the hilarious Helena Farhi and we filmed it while working up in Maine together. We had a blast working on it, so check it out! :)
Here's what I've been up to recently!
BIG HUGE NEWS ANNOUNCEMENT
I'm going to be Antonia in Orlando Shake's production of Man of La Mancha. I'm very, excited for this production-read all about it below and if you are in Orlando, come see me in September-October!

The world's crazy right now. I got new headshots. Other things are in the works, both on a national scale and on a Deirdre scale. I don't pretend that they are on the same level.
Enjoy the new shots and stay sane, if you can <3
So, I'm back in Nueva York and I'm pounding the pavement like nobody's business. Here's the thing, I've realized that being an actor is not a stable job. Who knew!? Sometimes you have steady work, and sometimes, you go to audition after audition and then head back to your side job.
I guess if you aren't in "the biz" that might feel depressing. But honestly, that's just how it goes, and so you focus on the positive things that are happening in your life. Like friends, family, pies, coffee, beautiful fall days, traveling and living in the greatest city in the world.
Here's the other thing: I've got some friends that are making really fun art. And I'm lucky enough to be included in those projects.
I've also got some other web shiz that's gonna be mad fun as soon as it's ready. Some of it is mine, and some of it is my friends', so I'll keep you posted! #vagueblogging
In the meanwhile, check out this 10 second teaser! And Happy Halloween!
