Faking It
Faking It, Directed by Brian Finkelstein.

"Ivana's tale begins at age 6, when her parents split up and her hippie mother whisks her off to Big Sur. In typical flighty hippie fashion, Shein's mother never gets it together enough to file any kind of immigration paperwork, resulting in her spending her school years as an illegal resident of California. Periodic visits to Canada to visit her playwright father during this time meant that young Shein developed a precocious knack for fibbing to border guards- a talent that would serve her well as a young actor in Hollywood with an expired student visa, desperately trying not to get kicked out of the country.

Shein's acerbic humour and obvious stage experience kept us firmly engaged throughout"

- Sue Snyder, Bloody Underrated

Come out for a night of storytelling.  And um.. it's also my birthday.

Ivana started writing her own jokes when she appeared on the "Last Comic Standing" style TV talent competition show "Sketch Troop". She would go on to appear at major comedy festivals including the celebrated Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. She also intensified her focus on writing, studying playwriting at the National Theatre School of Canada. After relocating to New York, she studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, The Public Theater's Shakespeare Festival Summer Lab, and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Ivana made her feature film debut in Lucky McKee's "The Woods" with Patricia Clarkson. The same year, she appeared in Mark Adam's award-winning film "Steel Toes" with David Strathairn and Andrew Walker. After this promising launch, she has continued to steadily build a resume of strong and interesting characters. Big screen credits include Richard J. Lewis' Oscar nominated "Barney's Version" with Paul Giamatti and Dustin Hoffman as well as Trygve Allister Diesen and McKee's "Red" with Brian Cox and Tom Sizemore. Television credits include a recurring role on NBC's "Days of Our Lives" and CBS's "Person of Interest". Ivana has also never lost her love for the stage and is often writing for it, or performing on it in Los Angeles.  Her play "Single", directed by Amir Arison, was part of last year's IAMAFEST
