She moved to NYC to pursue acting after college at William and Mary where she churned butter with the colonials on the reg. She now attends the New School for Drama where she will graduate with her MFA in acting this fall. Chloe is pumped to be a member of Real Good Spies, and hopes they don't figure out that she is actually a member of the KGB...wait...you didn't read that.
Ryan Stinnett: According to the Urban Dictionary partially quoted definition #3 of Spy, “Spies are rarely what they are in the movies. They aren’t kids like those lameass [sic] movies Spy Kids or Cody Banks. Cody Banks was f*cking lame and inaccurate.” Ryan Stinnett is neither lame nor inaccurate and that is precisely why he is excited to be on this team, which is also not lame or lacking accuracy. The definition concludes with “James Bond is a cool spy.” Well guess firstname.lastname@example.org? You better make more room on that “cool spy” list because we are Real Good Spies and that’s not just a clever name. Ryan is also a member of the Bats at The Flea Theater and can be seen in the long-running show #Serials@TheFlea. www.ryanwesleystinnett.com
Sarah Cook is an MFA graduate of the New School for Drama. Having performed on both coasts, Sarah is pleased to be working with Wide Eyed for the first time. Recent credits include NYFA film “Rage 12” and The Country with Paul Takacs. She likes crosswords and rehearsal.
Laura Cantekin had her debut as the narrator of the epic play "The First Thanksgiving" at the tender age of five, which is what first brought her to the stage. Most recently, she has written, directed and performed at International House in nearly a dozen shows, promoting global citizenship and the arts. Laura maintains a low-profile by posing as an educational consultant by day, and holds a Master of Arts from Teachers College at Columbia University. She's worked at Sesame Street here in New York and hopes to work on the show internationally. In her free-time, Laura enjoys perfecting her Beyonce impression at the nearest Zumba class. A convincing disguise is after all, the most important element of spydom!
