Actress. Screenwriter. Producer. Director.
Tiffany Yancey is a native of the Philadelphia suburbs but started her acting journey over 20 years ago in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area. Her experience extends from both on stage, on camera and currently behind the camera writing and producing original content. In 2013 she won the “Best Supporting Actress” award at the EOTM (Entrepreneurs On The Move) for her role as “Tia”, a deceptive wife who’ s infidelity catches up to her, in the indie film “Split Second.” In 2014 she added filmmaker to her resume when she started her production company, April Reign Productions, LLC (now A.T.Yancey Entertainment), and writing, producing and starring in her hilarious rom-com “Love Him Or Leave Him.” A story about a young woman finds out her new man isn’t so perfect after coming up short in the bedroom. The film received the “Best Comedic Feature” at the Urban Media Film Makers Festival in 2015 and “Best Score” at the Philadelphia Film Awards.
After spending the next few years honing her screenwriting skills, she completed her next script, “The Holiday Heartbreak”, a rom-com about a father’s previous womanizing indiscretions coming back to haunt his daughter’s love life. This film project will be produced by MegaMind Media for the BETher network in 2020. In 2019, she also wrote, produced and starred in her comedy pilot, “The Introvert Life,” a series about a reclusive writer who wants to succeed in Hollywood but hates socializing and networking with people.
Tiffany’s overall vision and purpose is to create opportunities for herself along with other women of color in the TV and film industry. She feels like nobody can tell our stories like we can and she has every intention on bringing them to life on the small and big screen.
