Colleen Foy started acting in high school and majored in theatre at Marquette University in Milwaukee. In her senior year, she performed in her friend Garrett Zuercher's senior thesis, QUID PRO QUO.  The play was unique in that it was performed completely in American Sign Language and voiced by offstage actors. The play was chosen by the American College Theatre Festival  to be performed at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.

 

Colleen's first year out of college was spent touring the country as "Alice" in ALICE IN WONDERLAND with the National Theatre of the Deaf. Colleen was the only hearing member of NTD's Company in the 2004-2005 season. That year she taped several segments for the classic show SESAME STREET  teaching the "Sign Language Word of the Day" to millions of children.

 

After living in hotels for a year, Colleen relocated to Los Angeles to start her TV and film career. She has filmed several national commercials and primetime TV appearances. In 2007 she made her feature film debut in the Academy Award winning film THERE WILL BE BLOOD, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
