Ellen Fliesler

Ellen Fliesler is an actress, dancer, and singer in the Chicago area. Since graduating college and bouncing around different jobs, she has realized that her true passion lies in the world of acting. She is so excited to be performing and pursuing other professional opportunities in such a vibrant city.

Although she comes from a theater background, she is rapidly building her experience in other forms of media. She recently performed in Idle Muse Theatre Company's production of St. Scarlet and Chicago Academy for the Arts' film production For The Record. Ellen also loves doing extra work on the big films that come to town, and was recently seen on the set of the new TV series "The Beast" starring Patrick Swayze! The first Hollywood film that she was featured in, The Promotion, is now out on DVD.

Ellen received her Bachelor's Degree from Loyola University in International Studies and Spanish. She is fluent in Spanish, and she does daytime work at a non-profit Spanish cultural center called the Instituto Cervantes. This multi-cultural environment has helped her a lot with her Hispanic roles, which are occurring more and more.
