Portia stopped by the studio to talk with us about her journey from growing up in Niagara Falls to the moment when she dedicated her life to creating as an artist. We discussed her spiritual approach to her craft and her career and the importance of knowing who will be there in her times of need. Portia recently played Cynthia in a production of Sweat at the Mark Taper Forum, Jackie Zinner in Artney Jackson at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, Mrs. Dickson in Intimate Apparel at the Bay Street Theatre and Flora in The Rose Tattoo in Williamstown. She's appeared on numerous television shows (including Madam Secretary, Bull, and The Blacklist) and in films (including Skin, St. Vincent de Van Nuys, Silver Tongues and The Greatest).
