Katie Anvil Rich

Welcome! My name is Katie Anvil Rich and I am an actor, writer, and director from Oakland, California. 

I got my start at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, CA and have been working ever since. I'm the daughter of a painter, sculptor, and an only child who had ample time to play pretend growing up - most of my life is about the pursuit of art and storytelling.

I have my M.F.A. in Acting from Harvard University and the Moscow Art Theatre, where I trained not only in acting and playwrighting, but also aerial silks, partner acrobatics, stage combat, and voice, speech and rhetoric. While at earning my M.F.A. in Acting from an Top 10 Program, I also had the privilege of studying at the Moscow Art Theatre School (MXAT), the birthplace of modern theatre and acting. During my time at Harvard, I was also selected to participate in The Guthrie Experience, a program wherein 8 graduate acting students from programs across the Nation are chosen to collaborate with their peers and The Guthrie Theater, training, writing, and developing new work.


I currently live in Los Angeles and am represented by Brenda Fisher at RSA Talent Management. 

I am of Chickasaw and Cherokee descent and an ensemble member at Native Voices at the Autry, as well as an improvisor at UCB and The Ruby:LA. You can catch my sketch team, A Tribe Called Sketch monthly at Second City Hollywood (when we are back from the End Times).

You can also catch me at Peet's coffee and taking Krav Maga, but I prefer email. I startle easily. Thanks for checking out my site!
