Making it to Hollywood and thriving is no easy task, but the ones who achieve it, have some amazing stories to tell!

Yakima has had its fair share of exceptional talent! Singing, dancing, comedy, acting!

Yakima natives like:

  • Kyle MacLachlan (Fallout, Dune, Twin Peaks)
  • Sam Kinison (Stand-Up comedian, Back To School, Married With Children)
  • Colleen Atwood (Costume Designer, The Silence of the Lambs, Mars Attacks!, Fantastic Beasts)
  • Christopher Wiehl (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Can’t Hardly Wait, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit)
  • Adele Shepherd (Star Trek: Picard, My Chemical Romance: A Summoning)

The world is their stage, and they grace it beautifully.

But before taking the world stage, cut your teeth a little closer to home.
