ICynthia Brian, SAG/AFTRA, is an incredibly high-energy go-getter with four decades of acting and on-camera experience. According to her cousins, Cynthia began producing, directing, and starring in weekly extended family productions when she was just three! Her enthusiasm for the craft has never waned.

Cynthia is proud to have been inducted as a member of SAG/AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild/ American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) on her first professional acting job, the film Raid on Entebbe with Charles Bronson, which won an Emmy.

Principal roles in hundreds of print ads, commercials, TV series, films, and industrials followed, many times working with some of the biggest names in the industry with appearances in several Academy Award winners.
The running joke with her family and friends was that if she wasn't working, her children, vehicles, or barnyard animals were!
