Actress & writer

Allegra Edwards is an actress and writer with a deep appreciation and passion for fashion. 

Theatrical from the start, Allegra began acting as a youngster. From dance recital skits, to summer camps, to community theatre, performing was the perfect outlet for her creativity and imagination.

She also had a great affinity for modeling, and walked her first runway as a toddler (Laura Ashley, of course!) She signed with Ford Models at the age of six, and was featured in spreads for New York Magazine, Women’s World, Family Circle and others. As a teen, she walked for Adidas, Chanel, Christian LaCroix, Gucci, Dennis Basso, Betsey Johnson, and Oscar de la Renta, and many more. After graduating, her focus shifted from the runway to the proscenium stage. 

Allegra received her training at the American Conservatory Theater, and graduated in May 2013 with an MFA in acting. She attended Pepperdine University in Malibu, California and received her bachelor’s degree in theatre and television.

Allegra is the star of the Amazon series Upload where she plays uber-controlling ice queen Ingrid Kannerman. The series debuted on May 1st, 2020 and has been renewed for a second season.

Allegra also has a recurring role in the drama Briarpatch on USA Network where she plays the lovable cam-girl-next-door Cindy McCabe. She stars in the feature film The Social Ones which came out on March 5th and is available to rent or purchase on various platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Comcast and others.
