BIO

Edie grew up in Georgia with her parents, Paul and Jami, two sisters, Kaytie and Jacquelyn, and one brother, Bradley.   She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Auburn University with a degree in Liberal Arts.   

 

Her love of film began at an early age. As a toddler, she would critique characters and films, and she had even begun to take on fake names and character traits for extended periods of time. Throughout her life, her obsession with film would only increase and entice her to become involved. She started with small theatre involvement, but wanted more. After college, Edie participated in acting competitions and won Top Ten awards for her division.

  

She moved to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career full-time, studying in drama and comedy with various coaches as well as improv at The Groundlings. Edie is most recognized for her role in the award-winning short by Spike Jonze, "The New Normal." Edie is also recognized for her lead role in the multi-award winning short, Steven Spielberg and the Return to Film School. She works out of Los Angeles and Atlanta. After working on several shorts, features, and pilots, Edie got involved with the art of screenwriting. She now works in both acting and screenwriting.
