Mini Bio (1)

Veronika Dash graduated, Magna Cum Laude, from the 'School Of Dramatic Arts' at the prestigious University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre. Upon graduation, she has become bicoastal, traveling between New York City and Los Angeles to work on upcoming pilots, films, and theater projects.

In her latest work, Dash can be seen alongside Jane Fonda and Harvey Keitel in the award-winning feature film, Youth, directed by Oscar-Winner Paolo Sorrentino.

Veronika Dash was born on October 28th in Kiev, Ukraine and is bilingual; she speaks English and Russian fluently and is also conversationally proficient in Italian & the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA.) Dash grew up in New York City and revealed her passion for performing at a young age; she was victorious in numerous storytelling contests, participated in countless school productions, and was a member of the Drama Club, and choir, since the second grade.

Her spark for theatre was initially ignited after she landed her first big lead in the school production of The King and I, where she played a British schoolteacher named Anna. She majored in Performing Arts and learned the necessary skills in acting, music and dance to become a triple threat. Winning the 'Junior Actor of the Year' award, at a popular International Talent competition, sparked the beginning of her professional career. Since then, Dash has successfully booked work in TV/Film, Commercials, Stage, Print, Hosting and Voice-Over.

Dash is no stranger to playing strong female characters like Beatrice in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, Cherry in George Farquhar's The Beaux' Stratagem and Dawn in Kenneth Lonergan's Lobby Hero. She reprised the role of 'Sarah' in the original New York dark comedy play Scottish Sperm performed in the famous Zoofest 'Just For Laughs' Comedy festival in Montreal, Canada, and was one of the leads taking the audience back to the 1940s in the immersive theatre production 'Howard Hughes' in Playa Vista, California.

Dash has also made memorable on-screen appearances showing off her comedic chops as Amanda McCormick in the satirical show, The Onion News Network, (2011) and working alongside A-List actors like Most Def in the SONY feature film Cadillac Records, (2008) Justin Long and Ari Graynor in the Focus Feature comedy film For A Good Time Call, (2012) Sean Young in Nick and Nicky, (2015) and David Krumholtz in the up-and-coming indie film Ghost Team. (2016)

Her goal is to inspire others, to express humanity authentically through the works of great writers, to collaborate with artists she admires, to effectively tell great stories and as Larry Moss puts it, "give something meaningful to the world."
