Young Adelind pretending to be a blasé cat eating mac n' cheese.

Adelind (Addie) comes from a family of thespians and has been performing since she was a tot. Growing up in Charlottesville, Virginia, she accompanied her parents to rehearsals and grew to have a very "Hi Diddle Dee Dee" attitude towards life. Adelind trained in classical acting at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, improv with Upright Citizens Brigade, and earned her B.A. from Hampshire College where she developed her verbatim solo show about mountaintop removal in Appalachia, Cry of the Mountain. Cry of the Mountain received high acclaim after three years of touring throughout the east coast and a run at the Edinburgh Fringe. The show won "Best Documentary 2012" at the world's largest solo festival in NYC.  She is producing, co-writing, and starring in the comedy series, The Pioneers, which won "Best Writing" at The 2016 Brooklyn Web Fest, is featured on Funny or Die, Seeka TV, and is one of the most "Addictive Web Series" according to the Huffington Post. In 2017, she'll be appearing in feature films DELENDA and WANDERLAND, and making her TV debut in a new Netflix series. Her acting has been praised by The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, The Scotsman, and many other publications. Adelind resides in Brooklyn, but prefers the country. She enjoys pretending to be other people very much, especially people who are nothing at all like her. She also plays bass guitar, but in a very "pretending to be a bassist" sort of way.
