THEATER: The Witch in Into the Woods (Hangar Theatre 6/28 - 7/13); Daniela in In the Heights (Dallas Theater Center 9/21 - 10/20)
Characterized by a balance of confident presence, emotional honesty, and biting wit - Talia is a multi-culti actor for all seasons. She has proven to be a true chameleon, working equally on screen, stage, and in the sound booth. Talia most recently completed the role of Kira in the upcoming feature film Inez & Doug & Kira (hitting the festival circuit in 2020) and will be spending Summer 2019 as The Witch in Into The Woods (Hangar Theater) and Daniela in In The Heights (Dallas Theater Center).
Off Broadway, she was seen in NY City Center’s world premiere of Ring Twice For Miranda (as Anouk) as well as the first ever remount of Marie Christine (as Prisoner 1) at 3LD. She is a Connecticut Critics Circle Nominee, having earned a nod for Best Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Aldonza in Man of La Mancha (Ivoryton Theater). Other theater credits include LMNOP (Goodspeed Musicals), Measure for Measure and The Laramie Project (CT Rep).
Talia continues to make fans in television, as she’s appeared on Succession and Veep (HBO), Limitless and Kevin Can Wait (CBS), Manhattan Love Story (ABC), The Following (FOX), and is an alum of the NBC Diversity Scene Showcase.
Her voice can also be heard on several national commercial campaigns and video games.
"Ivoryton has struck absolute gold in casting Talia Thiesfield... Captivating throughout the show, she rises to mesmerizing heights with her performance of 'Aldonza' late in the second act and it ably stands as a candidate for the ultimate show-stopping moment." - Connecticut Critics Circle
"Talia Thiesfield breathes life into the role of this strumpet who becomes a lady, Dulcinea in accordance with Quixote's view of her. Whoever plays this underwritten role must have the acting chops to pull it off and Talia does so with flying colors. She is not only an excellent actress but has a superb soprano voice which moves the audience to tears when she tries to bring Don Quixote back to his life of adventure with her "Dulcinea" and her recitation of the "Impossible Dream." Talia also displays Aldonza's spitfire side in "It's All the Same", her tender side in "What Does He Want of Me?" and her exasperation at his foolish idealism in "Aldonza." She runs the gamut of emotions in this role and Talia's finale number with harmonic balance of the chorus will send chills up your spine and tears down your cheeks. Brava!" - Theatre Mirror
"Talia Thiesfield is a joy." - LA Times
"Talia endows her roles with a rich, fiesty characterization." - Daily Pilot
"Wickedly talented...the evening had no chance of being anything but fantastic." - BroadwayWorld
