Lea DiMarchi was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. After deciding she'd had her fill of vitamin D, she headed to Pittsburgh, PA where she has spent the last three years working towards her BFA in Musical Theatre/Acting at Carnegie Mellon University. Her love for "The Bard" led her to Oxford last summer, where she studied Shakespearean acting at BADA. Lea has enjoyed working with the Unseam'd Shakespeare Co. in Pittsburgh and recently playing Estelle in The Full Monty at CMU directed by Patrick Wilson. TV credits include screaming a lot on episode 2.12 of Hawaii 5-0 for CBS. Aloha and mahalo to TSF, Mr. O, and my family.
