Lana Young, an award-winning actress of stage and screen, has worked professionally since receiving her M.A. in acting from the Arts Educational School in London. A native of Bermuda (where her love for acting was also born), Lana appeared in her first film, “Killer Flood,” playing Jeanine Mackey opposite Bruce Boxleitner. Her first appearance on television was a co-staring role on “Zoey 101.”
Since then her wide-ranging characters include the leading lady in the award-winning docu-drama “The Lion and The Mouse” (narrated by Michael Douglas), Edith in the remake of “Plan 9,” with Brian Krause, and the recurring role of Mrs. Douglas in “The Vampire Diaries.” She performed with Christopher Plummer and Ewan McGregor in the Oscar-winning film “Beginners,” written and directed by Mike Mills, and co-starred in “Devious Maids,” as Rita, with Judy Reyes.
Lana just completed filming the supporting role of Gloria opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams and Oona Laurence in The Weinstein Company’s boxing drama “Southpaw,” directed by Antoine Fuqua.
Her theater roles are many and diverse, including Lady Macbeth and Lona Hessel in “Pillars of The Community” (both in London) and Fran in “Lovely Day” (in Los Angeles). An accomplished voice-over artist, Lana has been nicknamed “Del Voice” by colleagues for the wide range of her character voices and accents in commercial and narration work for such clients as The Discovery Channel, Canyon Range Miami, Bangor International Airport, Bermuda Tourism Board, Plow and Hearth and Bioware.
Lana now resides in NYC.
