Stephanie T. Keefer

Los Angeles native and award winning actress, Stephanie T. Keefer, first stepped on stage in 5th grade when the kid playing Eeyore got sick.  From there, Keefer went on to earn degrees in both Drama and English from the University of California, Irvine, where she had the opportunity to study with legendary Polish theater director Jerzy Grotowski.

Upon graduating, she re-started the Theater Department at Santa Ana High School, and after 15 years of running the show, Keefer left to act professionally.  A commercial agency signed Keefer soon after, and she landed her TV debut that year in an under 5 on The Young & the Restless where she said the word “splenectomy” with grave concern.  The following year, she booked a national commercial.

Good start!

One DanceWith the WGA strike interrupting progress, Keefer proactively took charge of her career and created SilverArrow Productions. The first production was the short ONE DANCE. Keefer adapted the script, produced and acted.  ONE DANCE was an official selection at the San Francisco Black Film Festival, the LA Femme Film Festival and Keefer won Best Performance in a Short at the SoCal Film Festival.
