BIOGRAPHY

april-billingsley-last-vegas-special-scr

April Billingsley is whip smart, well-spoken, and on rare occasions, an adorably fun drunk; or so she’s been told.

As an award-winning actor, she often plays the angelic girl next door...

who gets traumatized…

to become a mentally off-kilter girl with guns.

Her performance as the multi-faceted lead character in the Dan Bush directed thriller, “The Dark Red” was described by various critics as “absolutely transfixing,” “deliver[ed] with the utmost of subtle finesse,” and “flat out fantastic […], showing incredible range, breaking your heart even as she gets your fist pumping in the air.”

 

Among April’s most notable roles, she recurred opposite Matt Craven, Francis Fisher, and Kurtwood Smith in ABC’s “Resurrection” as well as endeared audiences opposite Oscar-winner Kevin Kline in the Jon Turteltaub comedy, “Last Vegas”. You also may have seen her on one of a multitude of hit TV shows including “The Summer I Turned Pretty”, “The Walking Dead”, and “The Vampire Diaries” among others.

 

When she’s not on set, you’ll find her training with her goldendoodle, Biscuit, studying something random and new, or filling up her heart by learning from and lifting up other actors whilst teaching at Drama Inc.’s acting studio in Atlanta.
