My name is Eliza Charley and I am a trained and experienced actress from Melbourne, Australia. Having completed the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) Open Actors Studio (2013), Advanced Studio (2014) and Screenacting on Location, I have worked professionally on Short Films, Commercials and Theatre whilst continuing my training under Clare Dea at Meisner Melbourne and taking workshops at The Australian Film and Television Academy (TAFTA). I am represented by Therese Clifford Management and based in Melbourne, Australia. Most notably, I play the lead in ‘Sweat’, directed by Aldi Godjali, which just won two awards at the Setting Sun Film Festival including ‘Best Metro Short Overall’. In 2014, I produced and starred in the successful Australian Premiere of ‘Good Egg’ by Dorothy Fortenberry (CW’s ‘The 100’). I have also worked as a production runner/assistant on a range of larger-scale American and Australian productions. www.elizacharley.com
