Diana Elizabeth Jordan
Diana Elizabeth Jordan is an award winning Actor, Storyteller-Speaker, Expressive Arts Facilitator, and Creative Entrepreneur who has literally been fighting adversity since the day she was born. Her doctors' had to work on her for 45 minutes before she started breathing on her own. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy (which mildly affects her speech and gait) around age two, Diana grew up determined not to let adversity stop her from pursuing her dream of being an actor. Since the beginning of her career Diana has refused to be limited to only being cast in disability specific roles but also cast in roles where her disability is incidental to the character or storyline. She has realized that dream and has been cast in over 40 plays and in film and television. Diana is a member of SAG-AFTRA and Actors Equity Association and was the first actor with a disability to obtain a Masters of Fine Arts in Acting from California State University Long Beach (2001).
