It’s not often one knows their choice of careers at the age of two, but for actress Dawn Sobolewski, there was never a doubt. “Anytime my mother asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, my reply was always the same – “an actress,” she said during a recent interview.

Now 25, with credits that include stage, television and film projects, Sobolewski has been cast in her first lead film role in the upcoming project, “A Flower In The Mud” where she will play Terry McGowen. The film is based on the novel by Fred Muntzner. The movie is a passionate, powerful story of the love and commitment of a fallen woman trying to make amends in life.

After a stellar high school acting career in Roselle Park, Dawn attended the renowned Stella Adler Studio in New York. Work there included roles in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Cripple of Irishman and Top Girls. After graduating in 2009, she studied at One on One Studios. There she studied film with some of Hollywood’s Top Casting Directors. She won rave reviews in Los Angeles for her work as a serial killer on the hit television series “True Blood”.

Sobolewski’s worked with The Biography Channel, HBO, NBC, Columbia Pictures, New Line Cinema, Warner Bros., Discovery ID Network, Time Warner Channel, LandlineTV.com, and The Onion News Network. She’s earned many commercial, music video, New Media, and modeling credits. Independent Feature Films work include the supporting role of Lucy in “Please, Talk With Me”, and Hannah Fairfield “The Bates Haunting’.

Prime-time television roles include appearances on NBC’s 30 Rock, Celebrity Ghost Stories and the lead role of “Summer” on Discovery ID’s “Scorned: Love Kills.” She worked in the feature film “Excuse Me for Living” starring Christopher Lloyd, Jerry Stiller, and Wayne Knight. In one of her biggest career thrills, actor Ben Affleck picked Dawn for the Female Space Trooper role in the Academy Award winning film, “Argo”.

In her spare time, Sobolewski is an acting teacher and director to young aspiring performers at Elite Starz in Rahway.  She plans to continue learning, not only as an actor, but person as well. “Growth as an actor and as a human being, are synonymous,” she stated.
