Hannah Kopen's Actor Profile and Modeling Portfolio


Classically trained, Hannah has played roles from Shakespeare to Moliere to Neil Simon, working in major repertory theaters such as the Victory Gardens Theatre and the London Oval theatre, as well as in numerous independent films and national commercials. Her two most recent films have been screened across the country in numerous film festivals and have won her Best Lead Actress award of 2016 and her latest short film "Hammersmith: Hurdle of Dreams" has been accepted into Filmapalooza in Paris and Cannes Film Festival in May 2018. She currently resides in Chicago and is represented by Shirley Hamilton Talent Agency.

She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from Northwestern University and has performed in Chicago, London, Prague, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland as the lead in the musical, “Working.” Hannah has trained closely with Ian Wooldridge in London, Sandra Marquez, Dawn Mora, and Henry Godinez at Northwestern University, and Ted Sluberski in New York City.

Hannah has an infectious smile paired with a sweet demeanor but watch out! - this girl packs a mean punch when provoked. Friends call her “beautiful inside and out,” "the gutsy "Yes" girl," and, "powerful and intimidating, yet comfortable and warm.” The ultimate risk-taking dreamer, she lives for experiences rather than things. Hannah has backpacked for months out west, through Alaskan wilderness, and sea-kayaked next to whales. She is ready for any adventure.

Whether she is playing the free-spirited pixie dream girl, a tenacious NASA scientist, or a vengeful femme fatale, Hannah brings her essence and deep soul to every role. Hannah loves to dance hard at music festivals, produce experiential events surrounding social justice and feminism, and finds inner peace through creative writing, making short films with friends, and practicing yoga.
