“Ory’s Rosie brings youthful energy.” –Back Stage
“The acting lives and breathes on stage in performances that would make Uta Hagen proud.”-Metro LA
After many years of singing and dancing in her grandparents’ living room with Elvis microphone in hand, her mother suggested the young Veronique start taking her acting seriously by enrolling in a program at the New York State Theatre Institute (NYSTI). This was an excellent program which included movement, voice, and acting. NYSTI was on the campus of Russell Sage College, which later became Ms. Ory’s Alma Mater. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, Veronique made the big drive out to Los Angeles to pursue film and television.
Theatre has also been an important aspect in her career. She is the co-founder of Athena Theatre, a nonprofit theatre organization, founded in July 2003. It is through Athena Theatre where Veronique is able to produce amazing thought provoking work that she is truly proud of. Veronique has gained several awards such as being named Top Ten Best Actress in Los Angeles by NoHo LA, reviewplays.com, Entertainment Today and Metro LA.
Eight years and thirteen plays later, she was hired to produce an Off-Broadway production of STITCHING which performed at the Lillian Theatre in Hollywood. This experience propelled her to move to NYC in May 2009. She is currently bi-coastal as an Actor and Artistic Director.
