Rachael Meyers

A six-foot-two former collegiate basketball player, this award-winning actor-writer-director-producer-singer moved from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the performing arts.       

Since the move, Rachael has become known for her role as Josie on the Emmy-nominated Netflix Series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, as well as appearances on ABC's Fresh Off the Boat and Disney's Dog with a Blog. Most recently, she landed a role on Mindy Kaling's new NBC comedy Champions, playing Judith opposite Jon Rudnitsky, Anders Holm, and Andy Favreau. On stage, Meyers gained attention for her roles in the 2012 Ovation-nominated play The Elephant Man at the Pico Playhouse and Torrance Theater Company's critically acclaimed musical Chicago in which StageSceneLA touted her as "a towering beacon of goodness." This summer, she will debut the role of Jason’s Mom in award-winning writer-director Michael Leoni’s new play FAMOUS at the 11:11 in West Hollywood. She has been featured in articles on well-known entertainment news sites, including TV.com and BroadwayWorld.com.   

In 2011, Rachael created her own production company, RM Productions, under which she works as an independent writer, director and producer.  Through numerous short films and new media projects, she has had the pleasure of working with many talented actors, including Gina Hecht (Seinfeld), Rob Brownstein (Argo), Elisa Gabrielli (Madagascar), and James Kyson (Heroes).  For her work, she received the 2012 Young Artist Development Award from Chaspen Foundation for the Arts.  Her directorial debut, Highway 15 has won multiple awards at festivals across the country, including Best Direction, and most recently, her short Forget-Me-Not was awarded Best Drama Short Film at the North Hollywood Cinefest. She is currently in development with Oscar-winning producer Fred Roos to direct her screenplay Lost for Words, and with writer and co-producer Elise Zell in the feature adaptation of their awarding-winning short Zoe + Ari.

An ever-avid student, Rachael presently trains as a vocalist with Corinne Dekker and as an actor-director in the Advanced Scene Study class at the Beverly Hills Playhouse. She is currently represented bicoastally by The Polygon Group and in the Southeast by Landrum Arts LA.    More information on her projects with RM Productions is available at www.rmproductionsonline.org.
