ARE YOU SALONING WITH US? Don't Miss Out...
Abby Miller at the Nebraska Salon on Monday!
|Special Guest: Abby Miller, actor on JUSTIFIED & AQUARIUS
Small town Nebraska girl with Hollywood dreams. Yes, talent and persistence really do make dreams come true. Abby Miller is an actor and musician who is making a BIG name for herself…and she’ll be our guest at the Salon on Monday, July 13th.
Clay Center, Nebraska is a town of only 800 people. But their community theatre gave a girl a part in The Sound of Music, and that girl, Abigail Miller, knew at age 12 what she wanted to do for life. Studying theatre at UNL and in London, Abby got to play Ophelia and Helen Keller, and honing her skills with improve and stand-up.
After coming to Hollywood and getting small parts in features and big parts in student films, her first big acting break came on MAD MEN in 2011. That led to a recurring role and 16 episodes on the FX series JUSTIFIED with Timothy Oliphant, as drug-addicted prostitute Ellen May.
Then came along the NBC series AQUARIUS with David Duchovny. Abby plays Mary Brunner in the crime drama thriller set in the 1960s during the time of the Manson Family murders. AQUARIUS was just picked up for its second season. Abby has also been seen on television in PRIVATE PRACTICE, THE NINE, and features CONGRATULATIONS (which she co-wrote), FUZZ TRACK CITY and IT’S NOT YOU, IT’S ME with Vivica A. Fox.
As she made her way as an actor, Abby also found her voice as a singer/songwriter. She is half of the popular music duo, Jen and Abby, which has found quite a following in Los Angeles and on tour around the country. (You might remember Jen & Abby were our musical guests at the NCC Christmas party back in 2010).
It seems like only yesterday that Abby showed up at the Coast Connection fresh off the covered wagon from Nebraska. Now she’ll be in the spotlight as our special guest to share her stories of how to create an acting career with grace, humor, integrity and hard work.
