Actor Bio

Margarita Volkovinskaya, known professionally as Rita Volk, is an Uzbek-American actress. She is known for her role as Amy Raudenfeld in the MTV romantic comedy series Faking It. 

Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Rita Volk moved to San Francisco with her family when she 6 years old. Approached by a modeling scout, Volk was given the opportunity to audition for commercials and instantly fell in love with acting.

Through high school, Volk acted in school plays and further explored her burgeoning love for film which she claims, also, helped her and her family acclimate to the American language and culture. After high school, Volk attended Duke University, where she graduated with a degree in psychology/premed. But she never lost sight of her passion for acting as she acted in student films and was a member of Inside Joke, Duke’s sketch comedy troupe.

In 2013 Volk was cast in the pilot for the MTV comedy series Faking It, playing Amy, one of the series’ lead roles; MTV ordered Faking It to series in October 2013. For Faking It, Volk originally tried out for the role of co-lead Karma, not Amy. In 2015 she joined the cast of the dramedy film Almost Friends. She also appears in the John Carpenter-directed 2017 music video for the theme to his earlier film, Christine.
