Courtney Shaffer (Allsup) is an American actress and voiceover artist born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is of both English and Italian descent.
Courtney has always been a performer and began her career in ballet when she was seven years old. Though she loved it, she realized very quickly that she was quite terrible. But that didn’t stop her from performing with the Oakland Ballet Company in The Nutcracker and collecting trophies for group dance competitions until she was 14.
Hanging up her pointe shoes, she decided to give violin and piano a whirl. But she didn’t have much luck there either.
It wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that her true passion for acting finally presented itself. In October of 2018, after working for a few years within the industry, she made the scary and necessary decision to pack her bags and ran for the Hollywood Hills.
Her acting resume includes feature length and short films, student films, web commercials, some TV and web-series, and has lent her voice to multiple podcasts and audio shows. For her full list of credits, visit: www.CourtneyShaffer.com

Courtney is a current nominee for Performer of the Decade (2010-2020) by BroadwayWorld, Los Angeles.
