Brock Looser Headshot (updo).JPEG

Hi there! I’m BROCK LOOSER, a New York City based actor, originally from Houston, TX. I also enjoy singing, writing, directing, dancing, and devising! 

I've worked on  PROFESSIONAL THEATRE productions with San Francisco Shakespeare Festival on Pericles, The Classic Theatre of Maryland on The Secret Garden, and GreenStage Shakespeare on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, earning me my EMC status. I have also studied as an apprentice with Commonwealth Shakespeare Company. 

We just finished principal photography for my first feature FILM with my second one lined up to shoot this fall; I have had the honor of starring in short films that premiered at The National Film Festival for the Talented Youth, Toronto International Women Film Festival, and others. And, we recently wrapped Death Death, a proof-of-concept short to secure funding for the feature. I am also writing, co-directing, and starring in a mini-series, 1/1!

 
In December of 2020, I received my BFA in DRAMA from NEW YORK UNIVERSITY TISCH School of the Arts, graduating a semester early as a UNIVERSITY SCHOLAR with TISCH HONORS, awarded because of my GPA, and HONORS in THEATRE STUDIES, awarded because of my thesis, “Shakespeare’s Societal Others: An Exploration of Race, Religion, Sexuality, and Gender in The Merchant of Venice and Othello."  There, I trained in musical theatre at The NEW STUDIO ON BROADWAY and in acting for film and television at STONESTREET STUDIOS. At NSB, I had the honor of playing #13 in The Wolves and Lucy in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and at Stonestreet, starring in Alana Barrett-Adkins’ short “Virtual DMV.”

At the ROYAL ACADEMY OF DRAMATIC ART, I took two Shakespeare short courses and had the honor of playing Cordelia in King Lear and Olivia in Twelfth Night.

Creating socially engaged art is another one of my passions. With a company focused on AUGUSTO BOAL'S Theatre of the Oppressed, I co-devised and performed an image theatre piece on racism in America for Congress in Washington D.C. At NYU, I was a founding member and eventually the President of ARTISTS IN ACTION, the only student-lead community service organization in Tisch. Black Lives Matter! I strive to be an ally by educating myself and taking tangible anti-racist action. 

 
I am deeply grateful for my family, friends, and mentors. I clearly love Willy Shakes. My favorite animal is a sloth. I enjoy exercising and being thankful to move my body. And, I believe that everything happens for a reason. But, really this third grade self-portrait says it all . . .
