Linsay Rousseau is an actor, voice-over and performance capture artist with over 20 years of theatre experience. She has trained at Steppenwolf, the Berkeley Repertory School of Theatre, Studio A.C.T. at the American Conservatory Theater, The Rachel Adler Studio, The Groundlings, The Second City, Impro Studio, and with Larry Moss. With training in a variety of martial arts and weapons (from East to West), she feels most comfortable with a sword or staff in her hand. She is a US Army Iraq War combat veteran and holds degrees from the University of California Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism and The College of William & Mary. She will be staring as Elita-1 in the upcoming Netflix/Rooster Teeth series Transformers: War for Cybertron coming in June.
A consummate geek, you can see her streaming Dungeons and Dragons on Twitch every Monday (and a few Sundays) for Fabled42. Whether it’s Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Marvel, DC, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The X-Files, The Witcher…she’s got a passion (and t-shirt) for all things sci-fi and fantasy. As the Doctor would say: Space. For all.
While Linsay’s been a performer her entire life, she took a few detours along the way. She is a former journalist and was one of four Carnegie Fellows chosen to work with the Brian Ross Investigative Reporting Unit at ABC News in New York and worked as a production associate and associate producer for PBS Frontline. Her masters thesis for the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, “Rape in the Field,” went on to be produced by PBS Frontline, the Center for Investigative Reporting and Univision. The documentary has won the Alfred I. duPont-Colombia Award, John F. Kennedy Journalism Award, Public Radio News Directors Award and was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism.
Prior to attending Berkeley, she served as a combat photographer and public affairs sergeant for the U.S. Army’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division. She spent a year in the northern Iraq province of Kirkuk documenting and reporting on combat and humanitarian operations. She also works to give back to veterans as an ambassador for the non-profit organization Pin-Ups for Vets.
