Dana Fares has appeared in over 50 theater, film, and commercial productions.
Whether she’s dramatizing on stage or selling you underwear on TV, Fares exudes a natural versatility. A gifted improviser (Fares trained with the Improv Olympics), she has a special talent for creating authenticity quirky yet always dark, comedy.
Fares’ gritty performance in the feature-length indie teen thriller Tied Up (2007), opened the first doors for her, leading to other projects including the lead role in the A&E Pilot True Tales, directed by Nick Copus (2009). Fares is best known for her portrayal of Heather Newmark in the Rolfe Kanefsky feature-length thriller One in the Gun (2010). Soon after, Fares starred in and produced in the original web series Water signs.
Most recently, Fares received rave reviews for her performance as the sexy and tormented Krista in the critically acclaimed production of Lisa D’Amours’Airline Highway. Fares also performed as Peggy in a three-month run of “Mamaphobia” on the famed Second City Chicago stage.
