New "Kahnversations" Podcast with Actor
Ellen Humphreys!


In this episode of "Kahnversations," we interview Ellen Humphreys.

Ellen Humphreys is a New Mexico-based actress. She was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she got her first on-set SAG film experience fresh out of high school as a stand-in, driving double, background casting associate and more. After receiving her BFA in Theatre Arts, she moved to Los Angeles and found Lesly Kahn’s Comedy Intensive. With a year of audition practice and practical job skills beneath her belt, she moved to New Mexico to find her place in its blossoming film & television biz. Her love of acting was founded upon, and will forever be fueled by her absolute adoration of the spoken word.

Some favorite past productions include IN THE NEXT ROOM by Sarah Ruhl (Santa Barbara, 2016), and HOME WITH A VIEW OF THE MONSTER. Catch her in the film OUTLAWS DON’T GET FUNERALS, streaming now on Amazon and the upcoming film, RUNNING WITH THE DEVIL (starring Nicolas Cage and Laurence Fishburne). And make sure you get CBS All Access, mostly for Jordan Peele’s THE TWILIGHT ZONE, but also to see her recurring role opposite Peter Sarsgaard in INTERROGATION.

There are so many inspiring podcasts with fabulous stars out there. But their careers feel light years away from ours, don’t they? Wouldn’t it be great to hear from the guy who just booked his first pilot? Or the kid finally doing a studio pic after a bunch of low budget indies? Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in Brentwood? We’re producing “Kahnversations,” a podcast that provides access to THOSE people -- your immediate predecessors -- so that you can learn from them while their battle scars are still fresh.

In “Kahnversations,” our own Ryan Bailey interviews some of Lesly Kahn & Company’s working actors, directors, and writers in order to learn how they got started in Hollywood, the challenges and hurdles they faced, and how they overcame the odds. (They also dish out some crazy stories!) Listen in and enjoy as these entertainers speak candidly about their paths, processes, and experiences. You might even hear a bit about how Lesly and the Kahnstitute have influenced and shaped their careers.
