Lauren Neal

Actor and Filmmaker

Lion & Lamb Studio

I am an actor, filmmaker, and data scientist from Aurora, Colorado, a graduate of both Brown University’s Department of Theatre Arts & Performance Studies and the University of Virginia’s School of Data Science.

My first directing endeavor was the satirical pilot “Spicy Wit”, shot with aspiring actors, amateur crew, and $1500. The project, which I also wrote and produced, was featured in Ebony, Indiewire, and Huffington Post. I went on to co-produce “The Lovely Rejects,” for which I was also nominated for Best Lead Actress at IFF London. Additional acting credits and accolades include “Westworld”, “The Sympathy Card”, and Hollyweb Festival’s Best Guest Actor in a Comedy. 

In 2020, I won the Hyundai Emerging Director Award for my short film “Healing Me”, and in the fall of 2021, my team was a finalist in the “We Make Movies” pitch competition.

I serve as the resident data scientist at Castability, a start-up devoted to providing actors with actionable feedback and quantitative analysis of their work. I am currently developing an AI-assisted app for actors and their representatives.

I live in Los Angeles with my wife, Jill, and our cats.
