Becca Morello ’14 graduated UNC Asheville with a double major in Drama and Mass Communication. After graduation, Morello returned to her hometown in the Chicagoland area to pursue a career in the arts. In the time after graduation, Morello interned at O’Connor Casting Company, worked as an acting instructor and stage manager for Your Performing Arts Center and contributed articles to Technical Innovation in American History: An Encyclopedia of Science and Technology. Now, Morello works full time as an actor and model and is represented by multiple agencies in Chicago. Most recently Morello took the stage as Ilsa in Buffalo Theatre Ensemble’s production of “Improbable Fiction” and she just completed filming the role of Emily in “The Most Important Thing,” a short film by Second City film student, Alex Mangen. Morello has also had the pleasure of working as a background actor for many of the TV shows and films produced in Chicago and can be spotted on “Empire,” “The Exorcist,” and “Shrink.” In addition to her acting credits, Morello has also had the opportunity to model for a variety of brands and designers such as Itzy Ritzy, Lewis N. Clark and fashion designer and “Project Runway” finalist, Shernett Swaby. Although she’s built a team of wonderful agents who represent her across a variety of areas within the entertainment industry, Morello assumes a very entrepreneurial approach with her acting and modeling career. She’s created and consistently manages her own website and social media accounts to promote her projects. Morello designs and updates her own business cards, postcards and other marketing materials to distribute to potential clients and new agencies. In truth, most of the gigs Morello has worked on she’s booked herself through her self-promotion and marketing techniques.
