Goldie Hoffman hails from the small towns of New York and Montreal, Canada. A lucky lass with dual US-Canadian citizenship, she lives in both Los Angeles and Vancouver, ping-ponging between the two.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, she grew up there with a somewhat atypical childhood as one of 10 kids in a super-religie Hasidic family (yep, really -- talk about major "middle-child syndome".). When her parents divorced, her mother moved the family to Montreal. There she continued on a more 'normal & promising' life path, obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree from McGill University, double-majoring in History & International Studies with a minor in languages -- in fact, she's a proud 'linguaphile' who speaks English, French, Spanish, Hebrew, some Yiddish, German, Arabic, and a tiny bit of Mandarin. Upon graduation, she flirted with the idea of either broadcast journalism or human-rights law, and then applied to and was accepted into law school. However, she decided at the last second that life would be more fun on an unstable route pursuing her passions, so she enrolled in theatre school instead. The rest, as they say, is history…
A trained professional actor, her work can be seen almost everywhere: from gracing the small and big screens of Hollywood, to those of independent cinema; and live from theatre stages to big and lil' comedy rooms. Recent roles include Tisbe, one of Cinderella's evil stepsisters on Once Upon A Time (ABC Television); a forensic police tech in Lucifer (Fox Television), and on stage, the lead Daphna Feigenbaum in Vancouver's premiere production of the NY-hit comedy-drama play, Bad Jews, (Famous Artists Productions, directed by Jay Brazeau). She is also a regular cast member of the comedy series, TMI Hollywood, shot live in front of a studio audience at the Acme Comedy Theatre in Hollywood.
Goldie writes and performs both stand-up and sketch comedy at live shows as well as on the interwebs. She has a growing arsenal of hilarious comedy-characters and sketches, and she looks forward to creating and releasing many more comedy web-shorts & parodies. Her plans for the upcoming year also include starting a unique live online show combining many of the things she does, so look out for that soon!
In addition, Goldie also works often as a host & emcee at numerous live events as well as on television. Extremely versatile, and a real social chameleon, Goldie has hosted segments of all genres, from the fun to the more serious -- such as covering live events, film festivals, fashion week, news events, interviewing celebrities and politicians, interviewing the public, and travel & sporty adventure. Hosting credits include RawArtists, The ANCA Awards, Vancouver Television, Viewpoint and Tourism BC.
