Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
Natalia Reagan, actor, writer, animal activist, primatologist, conservationist, funny girl and - most importantly - a beautiful anthropologist, reveals the first in a series of personal and scientific discoveries on topics such as love, togetherness and loneliness, chimpanzee love and universal idea of buying affection.
Natalia, has a unique combination of acting experience in TV shows like “My Name is Earl”, “The Drew Carey Show” and Better Off Ted” and extensive field work with nonhuman primates (while working on her Master’s degree in anthropology). Ergo, she is uniquely qualified to help us get to the root of why people can’t get to the root of anything. Unless people find that inner animal in themselves and love it!
Natalia, and her guest artists, including, Jon (the voice of reason), Trixie the rabbit, Susie’s sexual swellings, Louie the Lover chimp, all contribute to Natalia’s Valentine’s Day Message. The message is simply, “The buying of affection is not exclusive to our species”. Audiences will find themselves laughing as they realize how much human beings are not so different from nonhuman primates, or monkeys and apes to all of us. Though, even more importantly, audiences will feel united with the entire world in trying to understand why humans behave the way they do-and realizing hat they are not so different from their animal kin.
Natalia Reagan grew up in the lovely San Fernando Valley, just outside of Los Angeles. She was raised by a professor mother and an art director father who instilled in her a love of science, the arts, nature and Mel Brooks films. Her first professional acting gig was playing a dancing Chicken McNugget in a McDonald’s commercial. She has continued to play odd-ball characters in television shows including “My Name is Earl”, “Everybody Loves Raymond”, “The Parenthood”, and “The Drew Carey Show”. Also she played a pregnant prisoner in the teen road comedy “Sex Drive” and landed the role of “Mindy” on the hilarious show “Better Off Ted”. Catch Natalia playing “Sally” in a web series entitled “Sally Loves Billy”. She is also a member of the Omelettes, an improv comedy troupe that performs in the Los Angeles area. Natalia also is a comedy writer, photographer and greeting artist for her line of sick and twisted cards called “Smoking Chicken”.
Natalia’s other passion is primate conservation and biological anthropology. She received her bachelor’s degree in anthropology from California State University Northridge in 2008. She completed an honors thesis focusing on a holistic approach to Grauer’s gorilla conservation (Grauer’s gorillas are a subspecies of gorilla living in the Democratic Republic of Congo). She is currently in her last semester at California State University Northridge earning masters degree in biological anthropology (with a focus on primate conservation). She has completed fieldwork in both Panama and Costa Rica studying capuchin monkeys, howler monkey and spider monkeys. Last summer she completed a three-month survey of the Azuero spider monkey that will be used to aid in conservation efforts in that area of Panama. She is planning to return to Panama in January 2012 to be apart of team to dart and collar spider monkeys at her site with hopes to use the collar GPS data for future conservation solutions.
