Born in Israel, Noy Marom is a now New York City based actress and producer.

NEW YORK - eTradeWire -- For as long as she can remember, Noy Marom has loved to perform.

First, designing costumes and performing for friends and family, then later discovering the magic, and power, of how actors tell stories with emotions through theater and cinema.

She began studying acting when she was in middle school, and throughout high-school. She then took a break for military service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) then began training at the Nissan Native Acting Studio where she rediscovered her passion for acting, studying Acting Technique.

From there she decided to take the big step of studying acting in New York.

Beginning with The Barrow Group and Grace Kiley Acting, both of which she enjoyed very much. It was her first experience of acting in a different language she found it very rewarding. Then she found The Stella Adler Studio.

"From the moment I walked into the studio, it felt like home. It just felt right. The atmosphere was so professional, but also very friendly and welcoming and I loved that there were many foreign students from all over the world.

It was a challenging experience, but I've learned so much from so many wonderful teachers and I am forever grateful for this amazing journey.

I was most surprised by how much it changed me, not only as an actor but also as a person. That's what The Stella Adler studio is all about. They believe that 'Growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous,' and that's exactly what I felt during my time there and even more so after graduating. You can learn so much about acting from watching different works and different performers."

The first roles she did were mainly in short films. She got to learn how to work with the camera, along with the differences between film and theater acting.

"There's more to it than you'd expect and you really have to find the correct balance. I love both equally: the intimacy and power of the camera, and the magic of theater with live audience. I feel very lucky that I have received the great training that taught me and allowed me to do both."

After graduation, it was time to become a professional actor. "When you're just starting out, going on auditions, the competition is fierce and it's all very intimidating. It takes time to find your place in the industry and my Adler friends and I felt that we really wanted to go out and implement everything we've learned. We were extremely passionate and we also wanted to control and own our artistic choices, so we created Virago Ensemble."

Virago Ensemble
is an International all-female theater company, striving to empower women's voices by sharing old and new works created by female-identifying writers.

"We've had two productions: a staged reading of the one-act play Last Summer at Bluefish Cove by Jane Chambers, and a theatrical movement piece of the short play Kiss that Frog by Serena Cates.

Kiss that Frog was mentioned on BroadwayWorld and our staged reading of Last Summer at Bluefish Cove was reviewed by the Emilia Bjornsdotter, Swedish Actress in New York Blog.

"It's always very important to be open minded and remember that you can learn a lot from everyone around you. Especially when you're working together as an ensemble and throughout the creative process, you really have to learn how to compromise.

It isn't easy to let go of your own vision of things, but when you listen and compromise and eventually truly collaborate, that's when the really good work comes to life. When you really trust each other.

I've also used these producing skills on one of my latest projects, a short film called A New York Moment. I've acted in and co-produced it with my good friend Amanda Erixon, who's also a part of The Virago Ensemble and studied at Stella Adler with me. We wanted to share the story of what it's like to live in a different country and go through the struggles of being an artist. It was a beautiful collaboration between friends and I am very proud of this film. We're currently submitting it to festivals world-wide."

At present, Noy is mainly focusing on writing new work for future projects and also working hard on refining her craft. "I'd love to focus on new work and to play roles that present powerful, strong, independent women. To tell important stories through theater and film.

As we all know, the business of acting is a very competitive one. There are rough times when you don't get work and it's very challenging to continue to find the energy and positivity to keep moving forward sometimes. But when that happens to me, I only need to think of myself as the young girl that used to play dress-up and put on shows, who dreamed of living this artistic life and perform on stage and on screen, and then I feel so fortunate that I get to live this life and to do what I love."

There's a famous quote by Joseph Campbell that Noy really loves. It says: "Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living."

Noy concludes: "I believe in that, and that's what I intend to keep doing. To follow my bliss and to enjoy the ride."
