An actress, known for Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You, Blindspot, and The Pressure.
Raised in Washington, DC by a civil rights attorney and a griot, a strong sense of justice and the ability to express one’s self were required in her house. A childhood full of exposure to all kinds of people, stories and traditions gave her a wild imagination and a deep sense of community. As an adult, Workman found the arts to be the most profound way she can be a part of creating community and contributing to the larger conversation.
Being intrigued by the ways in which people live (love, survive, heal, etc.) has driven her to travel extensively and explore the living habits of all kinds of people. Her life in the arts has always been about work that Workman feels in some way helps to validate and enrich the experience of myself and/or others. It’s about helping people understand one another better. It’s about helping people cope with the pain and absurdity of being human. It’s about helping people get through their day.
She prefers to work with a lot of writers, directors and actors to create and develop new work for theater, television and film.
