Korama Danquah is a SAG-AFTRA eligible actor, writer, and educator born and (mostly) raised in Los Angeles. She's a bookworm and TV, film, and theatre nut who never misses an opportunity to lose herself in a good story.
Though born in L.A. she spent part of her adolescence living on the east coast and in Ghana. No matter where she was, she was performing plays and songs for audiences large and small. She spent her free time learning about acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, The Groundlings Theatre, and other similar programs.
Korama chose to further her acting studies at Brown University's department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies. Before graduating with a BA in Theatre she wrote Body the Limits, a performance piece exploring the intersection of body image, intimacy, and sexuality. During her time at Brown she also wrote and starred in a solo performance called Mixtape for New Year's Eve (or Secretly a Love Story). Between productions she danced with New Works/World Traditions (a dance company rooted in the study of West African movement), studied languages like French, Hindi, and American Sign Language, and sang with Brown/RISD's Jewish themed a cappella group, The Alef Beats.
Upon graduating Korama moved back to Los Angeles where she continued to study and began to do professional acting work. She studied acting with Lesly Kahn, Ivana Chubbuck, and Laura Henry (Meisner), voiceover at Kalmenson & Kalmenson, and improv with The Groundlings and Upright Citizens Brigade. She has continued to work on the stage in plays at Son of Semele Ensemble’s Company Creation Festival and in multiple Hollywood Fringe Festival productions. Korama has done multiple national commercial spots and has worked on several films. She gets to stretch her comedy muscles doing live and filmed sketch comedy with The Fun Police.
When she is not acting or doing her own writing, Korama works with young people as a creative writing instructor at Writopia Lab, a youth-oriented writing nonprofit. She is currently represented for commercial and print by Lemon Lime Agency and is seeking theatrical representation.
