I’m Paulie Redding, an actress, classical enthusiast, and lover of life, adventure, dogs, and a good Russian novel. I spent my childhood in Mexico City learning the ways of the world and acquiring my first found loves of art, ranging from Diego Rivera to Kate Hepburn.
My appreciation of acting stems from my grandfather, who was the legendary leading man, Roberto Cañedo, one of the most prolific actors in the history of Mexican Cinema. As a young girl, I knew it would be my life’s work to do what granddad did: tell stories that matter, while expressing myself to the world.
I’m happy to say I’ve worked on network TV, most recently an NBC Pilot, and starred in award winning films for which I’ve been recognized. Dearest to my heart, I had the honor of playing Audrey Hepburn in the completely fictional, but historically possible story, "Before Breakfast." This short film has been accumulating awards and praise, but none as meaningful and profoundly special as getting a charmed nod from the Audrey Hepburn Foundation, (be still my heart).
Even though I got my BFA in theatre from the prestigious University of Southern California, I decided to move to New York City and enroll in the first ensemble of The Tom Todoroff Conservatory. Continuing my training with Tom has changed my life in so many ways, like experiencing snow for the first time!
Notable passions of mine range from languages, (I’m fluent in English, Spanish and French), dancing as a classically trained ballerina, being a trained black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and having studied classical piano since the age of four. Behind closed doors, I spend my time looking up silly trivia and reading classic literature, dreaming of one day being on the big screen, portraying the heroines of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Chekhov, and Shaw.
Once I moved to NYC I cemented my dream of being a storyteller as an act of service. Tom has taught me that, "It's about the story, not the actor!" And thus, I share my story with you.
