Magdalene Vick grew up in Kansas City Missouri and started acting at a very young age in professional theatre. She captivated audiences at the Kansas City Repertory Theatre and The Coterie where she was a part of the original cast of 'Between Land and Sea: A Sylkie Myth' by Laurie Brooks. Magdalene then performed with an incredible group of actors that became known as The Kansas City Actors Theatre. It was Lanford Wilson's Talley Trillogy that really put her on the radar. Magdalene played two starkly different roles: Shirley in "Fifth of July" and Avalaine in "Talley and Son" rotating in repertory. During this time she was featured in The Kansas City Star as a teen actress on the rise. The Kansas City Theatre community ignited a passion in Magdalene leading her to pursue her career further at The North Carolina School of the Arts under Dean Gerald Freedman.
Magdalene has worked in New York and Los Angeles starring in numerous commercials, short films, webseries, feature films and most recently playing Roxanne in the Los Angeles Premiere of Theresa Rebeck's "The Understudy" Directed by Laura Henry.
Magdalene is a unique and fascinating actress. She connects deeply to her emotional core while living in a state of joy and spontaneity. The result is stunning, nuanced characters that live dynamically both in the comedic and dramatic world. Magdalene is passionate about raising mental health awareness, working with other driven artists, and producing projects that make a difference. She's currently starring in Jim Carrey's "I'm Dying Up Here" on Showtime; and "A-X-L" Directed by Oliver Daly coming to theaters in November.
