As a youngster, Cora Kass loved to entertain her family at the dinner table, performing skits of the days’ events as part of her storytelling adventures. The abundant laughter heard from her audience drove her passion to continue the entertainment. Casted as the Wicked Witch of the West in her 6th grade Wizard of Oz musical, she was deemed, “One of the top actors on the stage” by critics. And so began the foreshadowing for years to come…
Known for her energetic personality and her love for fashion & unique style, Ms. Kass caught the attention of several Boston fashion designers during her time at Boston College. After graduating as a biology major, Ms. Kass was continuously sought after by designers and photographers as a model, modeling for the likes of Upscale Magazine, Alexis Bridal, and Ducati.
In 2007 and 2008, Ms. Kass was casted in several feature films including Pink Panther II (featuring Steve Martin and John Cleese), The Maiden Heist (featuring Morgan Freeman and Christopher Walken), and the Ghost of Girlfriend’s Past (featuring Matthew McConaughey). In late 2008 she moved from Boston to Atlanta, catching the eye of Tyler Perry and was casted as a feature in Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.
Since then, Ms. Kass has been featured in Launchpad Magazine as the Spokesmodel for Evolve Hair, Essence Magazine modeling for PZI Jeans, and has appeared in commercials for Adidas, Home Depot, and KFC. She has also completed print ads for Home Depot, DGK Skateboarding, and CenturyLink Broadband, to name a few. She will also have a role in the highly anticipated film, Cupid’s Requiem, which will be shown in the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Cora Kass’s beauty, drive, passion, personality, and untethering work ethic, continues to entice casting directors, film producers, fashion designers, and photographers alike. If you would like to book Ms. Cora Kass for any upcoming projects, please contact:
