You may have seen her in Flight of the Conchords‘ “Ladies of the World,” the new New York Dolls video, or on the cover of The Village Voice .
One thing’s for sure: French model Isabella David is getting a lot of work.
Isabella David is a French-American actress, dancer and singer living in Manhattan with her boyfriend and their two fat cats. Since moving to New York City Isabella has divided her time between performing and studying acting, dance and movement.
Isabella studied acting at Terry Schreiber’s Winter Conservatory, the Actors’ Movement Studio (where she had the pleasure of working with the late, great Mala Powers) and with John Basil at the American Globe Theater Conservatory. She’s currently studying to become an alliance-certified yoga instructor who incorporates modern dance into her classes.
Isabella grew up performing in theaters in Virginia and Colorado and writing her own plays, before moving to New York City where she has appeared in numerous award-winning productions on screen and stage acting in both French and English.
Isabella has a supporting role in the film Brooklyn’s Finest directed by Antoine Fuqua and currently available on DVD.
Isabella is also a represented model who works in both fashion and commercial settings.
In her free time she loves to read, listen to live music, watch old movies, search for vintage clothes and sew.
Favorite Roles range from the English-challenged “Genevieve” in the Channel 13 short reel finalist Pardon My French to the witty Harriet Woodvill in UVA’s The Man of Mode to the spaced-out “Sarie’s Friend” in Brooklyn’s Finest and to the classic screamer “Sarah Greer” in the horror flick What Really Frightens You?
