The Story So Far...
McKenna Cox is a New York based Meisner trained actor currently pursuing work in TV, film, comedy, commercials, and theatre. Some of her latest commercials have been for clients such as Squarespace, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Comcast, Skiplagged, Brilli Lightbulbs, PerkinElmer, and the Cooking Channel's Man, Fire, Food with Roger Mooking!
Originally from North Carolina, McKenna is a graduate of the Theatre Arts BFA program at East Carolina University holding a double concentration in Professional Acting and Musical Theatre. Since moving to the city, McKenna has been involved in several theatre groups such as Naked Angels, Abingdon Theatre Company, The Actor's Project NYC, and many more; and she has had the pleasure of performing at highly regarded theatres such as Lincoln Center, El Museo del Barrio, The Cherry Lane Theatre, and Joe's Pub. She is also a student at Upright Citizens Brigade, currently training in the Advanced Study Program and has studied under the renowned acting coach, Anthony Abeson, himself a student under the likes of Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg. She has also taken On-Camera Audition Technique classes at the Freeman Studios with Vance Barber, protegee of Bob Krakower.
McKenna is humbled and excited to be a member of Room 28 Comedy, a sketch comedy troupe that performs and films regularly, along with being a member of Bragging Rights, a hit PIT sketch comedy show that performs once a month at the People’s Improv Theatre. She is also a core member of Comedy Derailed, an all women comedic variety show that goes up at various off Broadway theatres around the city.
She is incredibly thankful for her supporting cast of friends and family, especially her parents, without whom very little of her current success would have been possible.
