Hi there! My name is Elie McCoy and I am a senior BFA Acting Major at Ithaca College. I have a passion for starting hobbies and immediately abandoning them (I WILL one day pick knitting back up I swear), singing passionately in the car, and vehement stress baking. My entire family consists of successful and smart lawyers, so obviously as the theatre kid I have had to sharpen and hone my vocabulary and wit to an ungodly level lest I risk being a disappointment. It also didn't help my character development being the youngest of my siblings (all brothers) whose greatest joy in life was to pick me up and fling me around the room. That was when I learned the art of the throat punch. Which I can now do onstage, thanks to the Ithaca College course, Stage Combat.
However, I digress. I have been actively involved in theater since I was 10. One could say I was destined to do theater long before that, as I sang every song I ever learned loudly in the middle of the night on my karaoke machine, without any regard for my brother asleep in the next room, until my parents took it away. It was the Music Man that eventually twirled me gently into my love of theater, where I was the youngest to be called back to audition for Amaryllis. I WOULD have GOTTEN the part too if they had not paired me with my crush at the time (Isaac, if you're reading this, no you aren't), which caused my body to go into a deep panic. I have since learned to be better than that. If YOU decide to call me back for a part I can promise right here and now that I will not make that same mistake UNLESS any Marvel actor is in the room with me. They are all so beautiful. I don't know WHY they would be in the room with me, but I like to be as upfront as possible.
