The Details:

Justin C. Schilling is an upcoming award winning actor and VO artist based in NYC. For the last few years he has been mentored by Penny Templeton at her studio in NYC, honing  the necessary skills for both screen acting and theater performances. She taught him techniques passed down from Stanislavski, Meisner, Chekhov, Uta Hagen, Adler, Strasberg, Wynn Handman and Penny Templeton herself.

Since making the jump to NYC in 2014, he has been seen on the screen in many prestigious film festivals across the world including Cannes, MVAAFF, LAFATop Shorts,  and Garden State Film Festival to name a few. Recently, the riveting dramatic short film, DisordHer, gives him his first major network debut on Prime Video (as well as KweliTV and NBC Comcast) and his role as Nathaniel Bryant in Lockbox gives him his first award. Top Shorts: BEST ACTOR.

He has appeared as leading roles in off-broadway productions at renown theaters such as Theater for the New City and 13th Street Repertory Theatre. You can also catch him on stage in the East Village as a recurring improviser in the hit underground comedy show BATSU! 

Justin strives to bring everything he can to every job he books. Always looking to stretch his artistic range, he takes pride in taking on all kinds of roles. Nothing is off limits for him in an effort to grow as an actor.  He can always be seen transitioning seamlessly in film, TV, or theater between both dramatic and comedic parts.
