Karen-Eileen Gordon is an American Actor, Voiceover Artist, Speaker and Coach who stepped memorably into public awareness with her completely improvised turn in the HBO comedy, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” opposite Larry David. Many projects later, her roles and sessions continue to win her global fans.
Born in Philadelphia, Karen-Eileen grew up in Hollywood, Florida, where her parents founded a residential real estate company. She holds an Economics degree from Harvard, where that student body voted her “One of the Ten Funniest People” on campus, thanks to her daily-changing outgoing answering machine messages. Passionate about the Wellness Arts, she is a long-time practitioner of both the Japanese energy healing art of Reiki and Restorative Hatha Yoga.
In the World of Television, Karen-Eileen was honored to be a Series Regular on the STARZ Original Drama “Magic City,” opposite that show’s leading man, Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Her female lead in the independent comedy feature film “A Free Bird” won her rave reviews (currently available on Amazon http://goo.gl/c4OGNL and http://goo.gl/NnWF7s). She’s attached as lead to two features–her first horror film and her first political thriller–both set to go into production in mid-2020.
In the Voiceover Universe, Karen-Eileen is an active audiobook Narrator/Producer for authors and rights holders in both the US and UK. She brought multiple Latina characters to life in the Rockstar Games video game, “Grand Theft Auto V.” When not on-set, in-studio or on-stage, she adores coaching; she’s a Senior Instructress for the Backstage-award-winning “VOHeroes.com” Voiceover Curriculum.
Her love of theatre focused on solo shows. Karen-Eileen is a skilled playwright with extensive experience in one-woman performance; she’s currently in pre-production on an original show (inspired by energies she refers to as “angels” and “guides” that came through to visit, during her energy work sessions with clients), called “7 FROM THE LIGHT.”
One of her greatest joys is assisting fellow artists in finding their magic. To that end, she keynotes and workshops on “Radical Self-Care for Creatives,” joyfully sharing instantly-useable toolkits to help storytellers of all kinds thrive on their journeys.
Karen-Eileen is happiest whenever bringing powerful stories to life.
