Jolene Kay has been a constant in television and film. She has appeared in countless commercials for companies like Home Depot, Nissan, Toyota, Dr. Scholls, Naked Juice, Nespresso, Coca-Cola, Best Buy, Cigna, American Airlines, Farmers Insurance, Rinvoq, Rocket Mortgage, and more.

Her numerous film and television credits include Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, NCIS, House of Lies, Star Trek, Colony, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Rizzoli & Isles, Flaked and more.

Additionally, Jolene has worked for many years as one of the most respected and in-demand session directors in casting, allowing her a unique perspective in the classroom, where she brings her experience as both an actor, and someone who works side-by-side with casting directors, into her training.

She believes firmly that you cannot teach an actor how to “book a job.”  You can only teach them how to be the most authentic version of themselves in the room, to have fun and enjoy the process of telling a story, and that is the simple secret to success.
