Biography

Myrna Davonne is a New York City-based actress who earned her MFA in Acting from the Actors Studio Drama School.

Born in Brussels, Belgium to French-Lebanese and Italian parents, she was raised in Europe, between France and Belgium. She completed her high school education in Brussels, while pursuing acting by being part of the school production. She also has strong ties with Italy and France.

She came to America for college, where she earned a BA in Theater from Connecticut College, after which she went on to study at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting Conservatory and spent a summer training at Cours Florent in Paris, France. Once this training was completed, one of her dreams came true. She got accepted into the Actors Studio Drama School.

She spent the summer of 2020 in Paris where she was in a production of Cold Room for Vertigo, and she was thrilled to star in a first long feature film in New York City, Palisha&RB. She also performed in her own play, No Friends which was produced in New York. Growing up speaking French, Italian, and Lebanese, she thrives to honor the work both in America and in Europe.

Myrna also does voice-over work in French, Italian and English.

Myrna is a huge fan of Krav Maga, which she practices in her free time.

She is fluent in French, Lebanese, English, and Italian.
