Lucinda Rogers

Lucinda Rogers is an actor based in NYC. She can be seen in the 2016 IFC/Showtime film "Chuck" opposite Liev Schreiber and directed by Philippe Falardeau.

 

Recently, Lucinda stunned in her star turn as a young woman rapidly losing her eyesight in Laura Point, which had its premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Lucinda was named the #3 actress to watch at the Cannes Film Festival by the Actress and Life Obsession Blog. 

 

Her other film work includes David Raymond's "Nomis" (opposite Burn Gorman), and Warner Brothers' "Do Not Disturb"; recent theater work includes Everything's Whispered at the Lynn Redgrave Theater in NYC.

 

Lucinda’s roots are set in South Carolina, where her father was a state legislator and onetime Democratic Majority Leader.  Through watching her father fight for human rights and education, Lucinda found her own form of the same: theater.  She began acting in classical theater, performing in Richard III, King John and Macbeth with the South Carolina Shakespeare Company when she was as young as six years old, as well as playing Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird and Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker. She left home at age 15 to study acting full time at the prestigious South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities, and continued her training at Southern Methodist University, earning a B.F.A. in Acting. She continued working in regional theater, performing with Shakespeare Dallas, Kitchen Dog Theater, and as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet at the Great River Shakespeare Festival in Minnesota. 

 

Lucinda continues her work in the community in other ways as well, including with the Lighthouse Guild and Learning Ally in NYC, where she aides the visually impaired by tutoring students and recording books on tape.
