Eugenie Bondurant’s long and interesting career has taken her from the runways of Paris to landing interesting character roles. Coming in at 6’1” the willowy with case-study cheekbones Bondurant started her career as a runway model, promoted by her agents as androgynous which followed into her acting career. Most notably, when The Hunger Games’ director, Francis Lawrence, went looking for an actor to play Tigris, a pivotal character enhanced to be both female and feline, a nationwide search led them to Bondurant.
Eugenie’s uniqueness was instrumental in booking The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga and Fear of Rain alongside Harry Connick Jr. and Madison Iseman. Both films are due out later this year. Last year, Eugenie shared screen time with actor/director Pollyanna McIntosh in the horror hit Darlin’ which debuted at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival. Her short film Tiny Bacteria was shown at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival; her numerous other film and TV credits may be viewed on her IMDB page. Recent awards include the 2018 Arts Alliance Ambassador MUSE Award and Women in Film Award of Excellence.
Eugenie Bondurant has been a member of SAG/AFTRA for 28 years and acting coach for 26. Eugenie has her Meisner Acting certification, studying with mentor, Larry Silverberg. She teaches Meisner Acting and Scene Study at Andi Matheny Acting Studios in St Petersburg and On-Camera Acting at Patel Conservatory.
On the side, the “Elegant Chanteuse with the sultry alto voice” sings the American Songbook with Paul Wilborn and Blue Roses. She’s also an active voice-over artist performing with the Radio Theatre Project at The Studio@620 and heard as the voice of Dalí Museum audio tours and St Pete Arts Alliance Virtual Mural Tour.
