Gabra Zackman is an actress, writer and voice over artist, frequent traveler and lover of adventure. She is based in New York where she grew up and built her career. She’s lucky to work regularly in theater, have a parallel and sustaining career in audiobook narration, and she’s had great success with her first writing contract – the humorous, romantic, spy-centered BOD SQUAD series.
The title of her current life might be:
“I’ll Tell A Story Any Way They Let Me.”
She got her start in sixth grade, wearing her mother’s tablecloth as a star turn in Oedipus Rex. From there, she was hooked. She studied theater at Northwestern and then went to grad school at The Shakespeare Theater’s Academy for Classical Acting. She’s had the privilege of working all around the country doing new plays and classics, working locally in New York theaters, and doing a handful of TV and film roles.
She has recorded over 300 audiobooks to date in studios all around the country, and she loves to record books in all genres. She now has a home studio, where she records audiobooks 24/7! (She has jokingly nicknamed her booth, decorated in damask, “the Damask Coffin” for how much time she spends inside it 🙂 ).
Inspired by the books she’s narrated, she has completed the first three books in THE BOD SQUAD SERIES (Pocket Books 2015/2016) – and now all sorts of new doors have opened for her. She’s hard at work writing a bunch of essays and a new book, if only she could leave her recording booth long enough to write it. Cheers to that!
