Holly Hawkins is a Louisiana-born actress who began her performing career as a ballet dancer. After dancing with regional and NYC companies, she transitioned to acting – but her love of dance runs deep. Her mother was a British classical pianist who often acted in children’s theatre, and it was alongside her that Holly made her first appearance onstage at the age of 4. Her father is a businessman, and her sister a psychotherapist.
She attended Tulane University in New Orleans and LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts.) She has appeared in a wide range of roles on the NY stage; one of her favorites being Sylvia in Allan Knee’s The Man Who Was Peter Pan, later the basis for the film Finding Neverland. She’s also acted on Los Angeles stages, including The Colony Theatre, The Odyssey and A Noise Within. On television, she most recently recurred as Dr. Angela Sturman on Revenge, trying to decipher Emily’s brain fog.
