Nili Bassman - image by Rosie Cohe


Nili is an American actress whose credits include Broadway, television, film, print, commercials, concerts, industrials, and theaters across the United States. She has been honored to work with and learn from many brilliant directors including Marshall Mason, Sally Field, Scott Ellis, Michael Grief, Hugh Wilson, Tony Walton, Gabe Barre, Phil Morrison, and more.


Born in North Carolina and raised in the suburbs of Washington DC, Nili grew up in a very musical home. She began studying piano and dance at the age of 5, inspired most by the classic Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and Gene Kelly films. A few years later, her dance teacher recommended Nili enroll in an acting class to combat her extreme shyness. From that first class, Nili was hooked. She acted and danced professionally in the DC area throughout middle school and high school, and went on to earn her BFA in theatre on a full scholarship at Point Park University.


Nili now makes her home in NYC with her husband, Erik, and their two young children. On the side, she is a songwriter, author, wildflower gatherer, hiker, amateur vegetarian chef/baker, an acting coach and a website designer. Nili is a frequenter of neighborhood playgrounds, has a penchant for finding four leaf clovers, and she will always be a big fan of 'old fashioned' pen-to-paper handwritten communication.
