Hally Smith is a bi-coastal (LA/NY) actor, singer, and filmmaker. Originally from Roxbury, New Jersey, Hally was raised by a professional Irish Tenor and developed a love for music and performance at an early age.
She recently received her BFA in Drama from NYU Tisch, studying both musical theatre and film acting. During her time at NYU, Hally honed her writing skills, creating short scenes and micro movies (Girl Talk), as well as a comedic mockumentary-style web series (MacDeath).
Hally’s passion for collaborating on original stories grew beyond school, and while under lockdown in 2020, she started creating a period thriller, Fior Di Fossa, with a former classmate. Hally was especially thrilled not only to be acting and directing, but also to be designing and constructing all of the costumes for the project, which has just been accepted in the 21st Annual Garden State Film Festival!
In her spare time, Hally is a huge fan of dogs, historical costuming, re-reading Harry Potter, brainstorming new film ideas, and long hikes!
WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING ABOUT HALLY
Tony Nominated Actor
Hally is bold, specific, strong and vulnerable. She is bold when learning material and utilizing her skills, and always brings joy and focus into the room.
Gary O. Bennett,
Co-Founder of Stonestreet Studios
Engaging, charming and winsome. Hally is one of these actors you want to take care of. She is instantly in the groove from take one. And take after take, it gets better, and at some point it soars. She has an innate sense of character, and never wastes a moment on screen. In the edit room we did not want to cut away from her because she was so active.
Alana Barrett-Adkins, CEO/Artistic Director of Rock Alari Studios
Hally is absolutely delightful! She’s witty, clever, fun, intuitive, and her work reflects this. Hally is a very strong actress and quite versatile in range.
