Actress, Voiceover Artist, Sketch Comedian & Harpist
SAG-AFTRA + AEA
Welcome! I'm Natalie Knepp, an actress, voiceover artist, writer, and harpist based in the West Village in NYC.
On the small screen, you may have caught my performances as I guest starred or recurred on numerous national TV and digital shows. From Netflix's hit show "Orange is the New Black" to the hit CBS shows "Blue Bloods," "Unforgettable," and "The Good Wife" - I've left my mark on the television landscape. Additionally, I've guest starred on popular series such as "CSI: Miami," "Damages," "Gossip Girl," and the compelling A&E projects "Coma" and "Think Tank." Also - Make sure to check out my work as Eugenia Bankhead in the Amazon Prime series "Z: The Beginning of Everything."
In the realm of cinema, I've embarked on unforgettable journeys through feature films. Among these experiences was the opportunity to star in the film adaptation of the beloved musical "The Last Five Years," sharing the screen with the talented Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. This remarkable production, penned by Richard LaGravenese, offered a chance to bring the character of Alise Michaels to life in a truly magical way. I've also made appearances in festival hits like "Rocksteady," "Bridge and Tunnel," "Imagine I'm Beautiful," and "Alto," featuring an incredible cast including Diana DeGarmo, Annabella Sciorra, and Billy Wirth.
One of my personal favorites is "Sam," a project that captivated audiences after its premiere at the AFI Film Festival in 2016. Produced by the legendary Mel Brooks, "Sam" was written and directed by Nicholas Brooks, with the title character portrayed by yours truly. I highly recommend experiencing the magic of "Sam" for yourselves.
You may also recognize me from my heartwarming role in "A Joyous Christmas" on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel. Sharing the screen with Michael Rady and Bonnie Bedelia, this project holds a special place in my heart and stands as one of the greatest on-set experiences of my career.
Recently released feature films such as "Impossible Monsters," alongside Santino Fontana, & "Making the Day," starring alongside Juliette Bennett and Steve Randazzo have received many festival accolades.
In addition to my on-screen endeavors, I have an extensive theater resume, both in the bustling world of New York City and in regional productions. I'm immensely grateful and honored to have been part of the Sundance Theatre Lab in 2012, where I had the privilege of acting opposite the remarkable Cherry Jones in "When I was Young and Unafraid," written by Sarah Treem, as well as in Brandon Jacob Jenkins' poignant piece, "Appropriate."
My journey into the performing arts began at a young age when I discovered my love for music through the enchanting strings of the harp. From there, my passion for the stage bloomed, and during my junior year in high school, I secured the coveted role of Juliet in "Romeo & Juliet" at the prestigious Weathervane Playhouse. This transformative experience paved the way for my career as an actress. Subsequently, I pursued my education at Interlochen Arts Academy where I graduated with a major in Theatre and a minor in harp after two years at the Academy. From Interlochen I received my B.F.A from Rutgers, Mason Gross School of the Arts with a major in acting. I continue to work in tv/film/theatre and also make comedy sketches at home with my husband.
