Born and raised in Hendersonville, Tennessee, ERICA TACHOIR is the daughter of accomplished jazz musicians, Marlene and Jerry Tachoir. Growing up in a musical household helped to fuel her interest in the arts, as she acted, sang, and danced from a very early age.
In 2005, Erica moved to New York City to study filmmaking at New York University in the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts. Her work as a filmmaker, especially her short film "Too Sunny for Santa," has screened at film festivals across the country, and she is a founding member of the NYC production company Buffalo Picture House.
After graduating from Tisch, Erica turned her attention to acting and began studying at Atlantic Theatre Company’s Acting School, founded by David Mamet and William H. Macy. She studies long-form improvisation at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, where she is an advanced study student. Her teachers have included Will Hines, Anthony Atamanuik, Shannon O’Neill, and Kevin Mullaney, among others. She can be seen performing around NYC with her all-female indie improv team, Florence.
Erica currently resides in Brooklyn. She is represented by Ingrid French Management.
