Rosemary Idisi was born in Lagos, Nigeria, where she grew up performing in numerous school plays and musicals. During her freshman year at Franklin High School, she joined the Drama Club and was a part of every play produced by FHS until her graduation. She was directed by Teri Zurfluh and Jennifer Miguel.
After graduating from Franklin High School, Idisi went on to study at George Mason University, where she was a communications major and a theatre minor. While at GMU, Idisi was cast in multiple student films, web series and GMU theatrical productions, ultimately deciding that acting was really what she wanted to focus on.
Idisi received her Bachelor of Arts degree from GMU and immediately started traveling to New York to further study acting and break into the film/TV industry. She then decided to face her fears and move to Hollywood to chase her dreams. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, Idisi landed a role as Pastel on season 5, episode 8 of “Snowfall” on FX. She also stars in “The Nest,” a short film that is circulating through film festivals right now.
Idisi currently resides in Los Angeles where she is still pursuing acting, and she cannot wait for her breakthrough role.
