Alicia Minshew was born and raised in South Florida. She was the third of four girls in a tight-knit family. Her mother, Lenore, is a Pilates instructor, and her father, James, is an Episcopal minister. Born with the acting bug, she has wanted to act professionally for as long as she can remember. After graduating high school, Minshew received a musical theatre scholarship to Indian River College. She acted in several plays and musicals including “Grease,” “Kiss Me Kate,” “Godspell,” and “Nunsense.” She also hosted a satellite music program, “The Music Zone,” where she introduced videos and broadcasted live reports.
After college, Minshew began working as a model in Miami and shot her first commercial. She was soon invited to audition for “All My Children” in New York. She wasn’t cast at this time, but the experience pushed her to take the leap and relocate to the big apple. Once in New York City, she signed with a talent agent and a commercial agent, joined SAG, and quickly booked two national commercials.
 
Minshew has built an impressive acting and modeling resume, appearing in numerous national commercials, voiceovers, and print ads. She starred on the live stage in the New York productions of “Beggar on Horseback” and “Of Love and Betrayal.” Minshew’s film and television credits include “Celebrity Death Match,” “Hit and Runway,” “The Caprice,” and a starring role in “Game Day.”
 
Minshew’s big break came when she was cast in the leading role as Susan Lucci’s daughter, Kendall Hart on “All My Children,” filling the shoes of Sarah Michelle Gellar. Minshew’s portrayal of Kendall soon became a fan-favorite, earning her more screen time with a pivotal storyline. The role earned her two Daytime Emmy and Soap Opera Digest Awards nominations, as well as a huge fan base. Minshew has become a holistic living, fitness, and healthy food advocate. To date, she has been featured in Allure, TV Guide, Soap Opera Digest, People, Soap Opera Weekly, The Hollywood Reporter, CelebrityBabyScoop, and the cover of Pregnancy, to name a few. She has also appeared on “The View,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “Extra,” “E! Online,” and “Gayle King.”
 
Minshew will next be seen with top billing and a pivotal role in the film "Lies I Told My Little Sister" as well as starring in “Desires of The Heart”, which recently wrapped production in Georgia. Her casting was announced in The Hollywood Reporter. Next up for Alicia is the lead role in the highly anticipated web series "Tainted Dreams." The series will give viewers a behind the scenes look at the making of a soap opera. It will begin production in Spring 2013.  She will also appear in the "All My Children" new webseries beginning April 29, 2013.  Fan's can also see Ms. Minshew on stage when she joins the cast of "My Big Gay Italian Wedding" in New York City May 4 and May 11, 2013. http://biggayitalianwedding.com/
