Ellens Press Kit

Hey you! Come on in…I got lots to tell you. Have a laugh. I’m a funny lady. I started as a social worker in New York, it fueled my passion and sense of humanity.

After many years in therapy, and I mean many, I knew what I had to do, Disappoint my mother and become an actor. As if being an actor wasn’t punishing enough, I decided to be a filmmaker. After all, who needs to make money when you can make films? Acting and filmmaking are my heart and passion! I wanted to share my love of acting so I developed the Ellen Gerstein Acting Workshop, for over 25 years the workshop has had great success with both adults and children.

I studied acting for five years with Lee Strasberg and script analysis with Stella Adler. I am a lifetime member of The Actors Studio, as well as an audition judge. As an actor I have worked with some incredible talent in Film, TV and theater

Under the banner of Lulu Productions my projects have included; film, documentaries, TV, theater, web series, and music videos. I wrote, directed and produced two international award winning short films Waiting For Ronald and Come Away With Me.

My latest project The Adventures of Ronald and Edgar is a half-hour dramedy series in the vein of The Odd Couple just a little odder.

Somewhere along the way I was a stand-up comic and also received a graduate degree in psychology, that way I could work through my own issues and pay myself for therapy.

Let’s get acquainted … you won’t be bored!

P.S meet my BFF Sylvia. We are like sisters and a lot alike in so many ways. She loves people, wants to be in the “NOW” and can’t stop talkin’ about important issues; SEX, money, music, bagels, gossip, love, danish, celebrity gossip, news, reviews, rap, dancin’, fashion, coiffs, deli, Siri, Jimmy Fallon, finances, politics, SEX. Soooo, come on in and hear what Sylvia’s Just Sayin’…
