Actress DEANNA BROCHIN grew up in a bilingual, bicultural community
on the Texas-Mexico border. At a young age, Deanna learned to travel
from one culture to another with ease, facilitating her ability
to represent multiple ethnicities on the stage or screen in either
English or Spanish.
Growing up as the youngest of seven, Deanna was always diving for
center stage. She began working as commercial model as a pre-teen
and then went onto study with John Casablancas in San Antonio. But
it was working in theatre in high school and college that made her
realize her true passion for acting. She graduated from University
of Texas at Austin with a degree in History and Cultural Studies
and was a member of the Drive by Players theatre group.
Deanna has been studying at BriteLites Studios with Julliard grad
Mona Lee ("Dazed and Confused", "Hope Floats")
for over four years now. She is also currently studying with screenwriter
and working actor Ben Taylor ("Stop Loss", "Walk
the Line"). Deanna has been featured in a recurring role on
"Friday Night Lights" and has worked on several local
and international commercials as well. She's also done film work
in both English and Spanish, including working as a Spanish dialect
coach to Emily Blunt for the feature film, "The Girl",
and a supporting role in the feature film "The 2 Bobs".
She currently hosts a music, art and culture show "Indie Live
Austin", as well as another show called "Film Industry
