Rona Benson grew up in East Windsor, NJ and left … well, as soon as she could. Despite a UC Berkeley bachelor’s degree in Cognitive Science, her right-brain prevailed and she has been acting much of her life. She has worked in major regional theatres such as the Mark Taper Forum, South Coast Repertory and Alabama Shakespeare Festival. You may have caught her on Bones, Mad Men or playing ‘Joni’ on Gilmore Girls. Or perhaps you saw her briefly in Jurassic Park III. (She wanted to get eaten by a dinosaur but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be.) Even though one of her secret dreams is to act in a scene with Tyler Perry’s Madea, her first true love is classical theatre.
Rona recently appeared on Fox's The Resident (as ... a resident!) and on YouTube Premium's series Liza on Demand starring YouTube sensation Liza Koshy.
