Rebekah Cook is a Christ-follower, team-player, and nonstop encourager. She lived in Spain with her missionary family for nearly twenty years before moving stateside to pursue screen acting. She got her start apprenticing with Advent Film Group, and since 2009 has served on both cast and/or crew for over twenty features and a handful of shorts.

Her film credits include The Screenwriters, Indescribable, Christmas Grace, Beyond the Mask, Polycarp, Princess Cut, Champion, Like Arrows, Indivisible, and Counter Column.

Participating in the casting and production process from both sides has cross-trained her skills in the industry, and enabled her to mentor other rising talent both in the craft of acting and the technical needs they will encounter on set. Whether acting, coaching, casting, or directing, Rebekah loves working with actors as they develop characters from a script and bring them to life on the screen. In addition to workshops, she provides video-conference coaching and career consultations for actors of all ages through her website.

​Off set, Rebekah enjoys serving as a vocalist on the worship team at her church, investing in the youth in her community, playing word games, thrift-shopping, and writing new songs! Her heartfelt calling is to be an ambassador of Christ and share God’s extravagant love with those around her.
