Hello! About me you ask? Here are some things you should know:

  • My name is pronounced CARE-iss, not Careese, Caroos, Cary, or Carrots, but thank you for the creative attempts. If you're wondering if that's a made up name, surprisingly - no! It's Welsh for "love" 

  • I'm originally from Washington DC, but moved at thirteen to Starkville, Mississippi, a town currently known for having once imprisoned Johnny Cash for picking daisies while intoxicated

  • I have a B.A. from Columbia University, where I studied various impractical subjects such as History, Philosophy, Acting, Screenwriting, & How to Be Unemployed

  • I studied abroad in Ireland and England, and worked as an Au Pair in Spain, Morrocco and Turkey

"Carys, these are not relevant facts"



  • I've acted in nearly over twenty short films and four features

  • I recently production-designed a feature film starring George Lopez

  • My artwork has received national awards and been published in Artists Magazine


  • I'm a simple girl, I just want to ride a fake horse, wave a fake sword, and scream-cry in a weird accent in front of a camera and get paid to do it

  • Preferably also in different languages (eventually)

  • On a quest to reinvent the Southern Gothic genre to reflect the contemporary South
