Bethany Love Orr was raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she and her three siblings were home schooled and restricted access to most media. She discovered theatre and film upon entering public high school, teamed up with the comedic improvisation group Theatrical Garbage and became the youngest comedienne to perform in a weekly show at her hometown comedy club.

While continuing to perform locally Orr earned a degree in science from the University of Colorado with plans to continue on to medical school, but she ultimately opted for a career in entertainment.

Her second short, Winner, took top prizes that same year at CFC Fest in Hollywood. She was hand-selected to study with Werner Herzog in his Rogue Film School and in Iceland at the Transatlantic Talent Lab (RIFF).
