EPISODE 022 SPECIAL GUEST: Ashley Rapuano
BIO: Ashley Rapuano (she/her/hers) is an actor and comedian based in Los Angeles. With compassion and charisma, she transforms people’s perspectives by taking them on an adventure within themselves, others, and the world. She recently moved to LA from New York City, where she wrote and produced her one woman show “Lessons With Lola” about her Filipino grandmother with Dementia, studied and performed comedy at The People’s Improv Theater and Upright Citizens Brigade, studied at HB Studio, and starred in several films currently in festival submission.
Most recently, you can catch her on “Homicide City” and “In Pursuit with John Walsh” on the Investigation Discovery channel. Currently she is working on more training and producing.
If not on screen or doing comedy, Ashley can be found practicing Muay Thai, yoga, meditation, playing guitar, or planning her next hiking or Disneyland adventure. Honestly, she’s probably sitting under a tree soaking up sunshine right now. She frequently visits her hometown, Las Vegas, to be with her family and friends. Ashley identifies as Mestiza Filipino, with her mother being from Cebu City, Philippines and her father being Mediterranean. She speaks conversational Spanish and is learning Tagalog & Bisaya. She has a bachelor’s degree in Stage and Screen Acting from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
“A lively and engaging presence on camera, a great comic sense, authenticity and warmth.”HB Studios Faculty Panel
Ashley believes in equality, justice, human rights, sustainability, Dementia awareness, animal rights, healthy living and is proudly vegan & cruelty free. Social justice is very important to her and she strongly believes in using art to amplify voices and amplify change.
