Bethany Kay

Bethany Kay got her wit from thirteen years of Catholic school, her smirk from her Jersey family, and her curves from a very healthy love of her mom's tortellini with lemon cream sauce. 

When she's not working on shows like Boardwalk Empire, Difficult People, Gotham, and Dietland, she is probably creating some devised theatre and clowning projects with friends or lending her business sense to any number of coaching clients she helps to make sense of this show business life: current clients have appeared on Broadway and in regional houses as well as on significant arcs onscreen. Recent: I KNOW THIS MUCH IS TRUE (Dir. Derek Cianfrance), MURDERVILLE (InstaMiniseries), Upcoming: PUDDYSTICKS (opp. Dan Bakkedahl), THE LIST (Universal opp. Clark Backo), BOOK FAIR (with TandemVision) | contact
