About Me

On stage or screen, I love playing characters who are survivors, lovers, and endearingly naïve. Think Amy Adam’s little sister with a splash of Jersey. Stories about family and spreading awareness especially strike a chord with me.

After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre from Rutgers University, I enjoyed the adventure of touring nationally in Cinderella (title role) and Beauty and the Beast. I was also an executive producer for Reinventing Films’ sci-fi short, The Program. Now living in Boston, I currently have a television episode under my belt and two short films in the works.

When I’m not acting, I’m studying Speech Pathology, focusing on vocal rehabilitation and accent modification. Language and the anatomy of the voice just fascinate me! You’ll also find me involved in the Lyme Disease community as I’m incredible passionate about spreading awareness after experiencing this disease first hand.  Experimenting in the kitchen, dog friendly places, impromptu road-trips, and the Fall are some other favorites I enjoy in my spare time.


Heather Stapleton"Heather brings depth to the mainstream ingenue. She's a delight to work with: excellent at taking direction, never afraid to work hard, has a bright disposition, and treats her fellow cast members with the ultimate respect-which makes the experience of the rehearsal process more enjoyable."
- David Leidholdt, Dir. AFT

"Heather is a dream cast member with “triple threat” gifts!  She not only tackles her work with preparation, discipline and professionalism, but she is willing to try anything and she’s generous with her fellow actors.  To top it off, she brings a sunny disposition into the rehearsal room and into performance.​"
