Rebi Paganini was born in New Rochelle, NY to Italian immigrants, Agostino Paganini and Margaret Beretta. She grew up in Larchmont, NY with her parents and five older siblings. At the age of 12 she would become a part of The Semi-Royal Shakespeare Company; the longest running Shakespeare program for high school teens. From there, she would continue working on the stage off-Broadway, in small indie and student films, before being accepted to Pace University's BFA Acting program in downtown Manhattan. Since graduation, she has written, produced, and acted in two films- one went on to win 'Best Picture' at the New Filmmakers Winter Series, and the second would be named winner of PBS' short competition and made it's debut on that channel. She continues to audition for projects and create her own work; her current focus is in the pursuit of comedy by performing Stand Up around NYC.
