Caroline Heinle is a bi-coastal actor, writer and producer. She began her training at The Papermill Playhouse in Millburn, NJ and earned her Bachelor's Degree in Journalism, graduating Magna Cum Laude, with minors in Political Science and Theater.
After studying in London, Heinle relocated to Los Angeles, where she worked in film, television and commercials, and wrote and performed live sketch comedy with the Strait Jacket Society Comedy Troupe. It is with the comedy troupe that she fell back in love with writing again.
In 2016, she relocated back to NYC to have spinal fusion surgery for idiopathic scoliosis. Throughout her treatment, she shared weekly blogs and vlogs, which gained press in the NY Post and Daily Mail. She is passionate about telling stories and the quote, "Art is made to disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed."
She currently sits on the Advisory Board for the nonprofit organization, Back to Healing, and her short film, WHITE NOISE, which is based on her journey with scoliosis, is making its way through the 2023 festival circuit.
Most recently, she has received 2 nominations and 2 wins for Best Actress, 1 nomination for Best Writer and 1 nomination for Best Dramatic Short Film for her work on WHITE NOISE. She has received 3 wins and 2 Best Actress nominations for her work in STILL, a psychological thriller about sleep paralysis, and 1 Best Actress in a Comedic Short win for her work in The Pinch Hitter, also circulating the 2023 film festival circuit.

When she's not performing, Heinle is a writer, health enthusiast and social media marketer. She is passionate about storytelling, creativity, laughing, wellness, feeling our feelings and mindful living. She enjoys soaking up culture, museums and the arts, deep-diving into psychological discussions with anyone and everyone, frequenting NYC or LA's newest or staple restaurants and coffee shops, watching the latest and greatest tv shows/movies from old indie theaters or her couch, yoga, meditation, workouts, healthy dessert recipes from her small but quaint kitchen and putting her sibling's buddy pass to good use and traveling! She'll make it to Paris eventually, but in the meantime you can find her touring the US to promote her newest short film, enjoying quality time with her boyfriend, mezcal cocktails with her friends and Sunday dinners with her 'fam'.
