Charlotte Pines grew up in a small town about an hour north of Albany, New York. She made her stage debut on the stage of the Kensington Road School auditorium as the title role in Mrs. Edmunds' kindergarten production of Snow White; some would argue it is her best work to date.
Charlotte did her undergrad studies at SUNY New Paltz, with an Acting major and Philosophy minor, graduating Magna Cum Laude. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Screenwriting at Brooklyn College's Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema, class of 2020.
She made her New York theatre debut in the original cast of the Off-Broadway thriller, Play Dead, by Mr. Teller and Todd Robbins as Margery the Boston Medium. Press appeared in many publications and periodicals, including the December 2010 issue of Vanity Fair, the New York Times called it a “gleefully grotesque orgy of death and fright”, and said finally “this wild, wicked show is not just a screamfest after all; it’s a pretty good piece of theater.” Her work in Tom X. Chao's Callous Cad earned Charlotte her first critical acknowledgement and a nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Leading Role for the 2012 New York Innovative Theatre Awards. She is lucky to have found two Off-Broadway theatre families in the Barefoot Theatre Ensemble and Shakespeare Off-Broadway.
Charlotte also writes and produces TV and film content with Lauren T. Mack as Halfstache Productions. Their maiden project, digital series, CAT PLANET, premiered at the Chattanooga Film Festival in April, 2016, and was written up in BUST magazine. Halfstache is currently developing multiple projects, including a sketch comedy show, a horror short, and multiple high-concept features.
Charlotte actively pursues collaborations with her friends, and artists she admires. She is also passionate about reading, traveling to different countries, adventuring, learning new languages and dialects, animals, doing new things, listening to strange music, and watching absurd amounts of television, (it's research).
She aspires to one day split her time between New York City and Paris. She lives in Brooklyn with her cats, Prince Meowrice Luther Miguel Spooticus Rex Halfstache Pines, the Loud of Mouth, (she loves him so much she wrote a show about him,) and the most recent addition to the household, Jonas, the Warrior Princess.
