Scene work demo reel: https://youtu.be/_TPMbaGCVPA and IMDb profile: imdb.me/karaflanagan My interest in acting stemmed from reading people in negotiating hedge fund deals. I completed a full time acting program at John Strasberg Studios in NY. I also trained with Andrea Haring, head of the NY Linklater School for Voice and Speech. I also studied Shakespeare at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
