After traveling the USA as a military brat, Haleigh Ciel followed her yellow brick road to New York City, landing at NYU: Tisch School of the Arts.
There, she studied the art of acting at Stella Adler Studio, Shakespeare at The Royal Academy Dramatic Art in London, dance at DUOC Universidad de Chile, and explored Chinese arts in Beijing and Shanghai.
She graduated from NYU with Honors, a hunger to experience the world, and a strong foundation in the performing arts. Since then, she has appeared as the lead in various independent films, music videos, and commercials. Her extensive improv experience includes studying at the Upright Citizens Brigade.
Ever the storyteller, Haleigh spent several years as an immersive performer where she researched and developed complex characters for several TV shows and theatrical performances (including Playing with Fire directed by John Gould Rubin and Marat Sade at Theater 54.)
She also originated the role of Billie Burke for Speakeasy Dollhouse’s production of Ziegfeld's Midnight Frolic and was noted for her performance in the New York Times and TheaterMania. Her most recent immersive performance in The Bloody Beginning was praised by Broadway World.
You can currently catch her as the "Blonde in the Front Row" in the pilot/first episode of the Critic's Choice & Golden Globe award winning Amazon original series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel as well as several upcoming indie films. Follow Haleigh’s latest adventures @HaleighCiel.
