Actor – Theater | Television | Film
Flo Ankah is a French actress living in New York. Her first experience with the stage was in dance and experimental theater. A few days after receiving her artist visa, she was acting opposite Helen Hunt, followed by the recurring part of Colette in “One Life to Live”. She has appeared in numerous commercials for international usage, performed at the Public Theater, the Guggenheim Museum, and under the direction of the lovely Alice Jankell. Her teachers include Ruth Nerken, Jay Goldenberg and Edward Morehouse.
She was delighted to played the role of Sylvie in the first reading of Best Friends, a new play by Jack Gindi.
Flo continues to train and loves to live in the moment, improvising life as it unfolds. She is reading, looking for a part/production that will fit like a glove, and take her work to the next level.
Nightclub Singer | Songstress
Floanne trained her voice in opera (April Evans) and started singing a repertoire of French chanson at New York’s top nightclubs, under the guidance of performers Lina Koutrakos and Isengart.
