Faline England has been a student of Diana Castle studying The Imagined Life since 2001. She has worked as an actress in film, television and theatre since 1997.

For her work in the theater she received a Los Angeles Stage Alliance Ovation Nomination for “Best Supporting Actress” for Ann in the Rubicon Theater’s production of All My Sons. Her work as The Governess in the Rubicon’s staging of the two-person play The Turn of the Screw garnered her a second Ovation Nomination for “Best Play in a Large Theatre”. Faline is also the recipient of five Santa Barbara Independent Theatre Awards for Viola in Twelfth Night, Roxie in Chicago, Angellica in The Rover, Meg in the Rubicon’s Crimes of the Heart, and for Flayjennnie Eroticus – a two-person show she also co-wrote, produced, and starred in. Faline is also a cast member of Carry The World: Women and Peace created and directed by Diana Castle.
She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Diana Castle’s teaching of the art of the empathic imagination is truly transformational. Faline is so grateful, honored, and excited for the opportunity to share this amazing teaching.
