After traveling the entire USA as a military brat, Haleigh Ciel followed her yellow brick road to New York City and NYU: Tisch School of the Arts. 

While at NYU, she studied the art of acting at the Stella Adler Studio, Shakespeare at The Royal Academy of 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 beautiful foundation in the arts. 

Since then, she has appeared as the lead in various independent films, music videos, and commercials. She has also gained extensive improv experience at the Upright Citizens Brigade and has created characters for several TV shows and immersive theatrical performances including Playing with Fire directed by John Gould Rubin and Marat Sade at Theater 54. Most recently, she originated the role of Billie Burke for Speakeasy Dollhouse's production of The Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic and was noted for her performance in the New York Times and TheaterMania.   

When she is not on stage or in front of the camera, Haleigh continues her love affair with film and photography through developing her knowledge of digital storytelling, writing short films, and shooting headshots and portraits for friends and family.
