"Donna is an absolute joy to work with. A wonderful person and a very brave actress. She works hard, determined to drill every moment and she does! A flare for the comedic can instantly shift to the unpredictable rhythms of drama, where she truly listens and truly reacts!"
Tennyson Bardwell - award-winning screenwriter/director (Dorian Blues, The Skeptic)
“Donna brings a vulnerability to her work as an actress which lends itself nicely to comedy, especially off-beat, as well as drama, especially "the other woman" kind of roles. In addition to Donna’s talent, she has the will, drive, determination and dedication to work in the market of stage, film or television. Take the time to see her. It will be an audition well spent. Casting her, with her work ethic, will be an asset to your endeavor.”
Terry Schreiber — founder of T. Schreiber Studio
"Donna Ross = Amazing! Amazing actor, collaborator, and person. Thank you for the love, professionalism, and intuitive, witty, sensitivity that you put into your craft. Your portrayal of Shirlie Mae in Roll On! was like no other, enabling me to see her in ways I had never considered before. Look forward to opportunities to work together with you again."
Marshall Opie - Playwright & Executive Director ROLL ON! Productions
"Then there’s Donna Ross, whose work is so pointed and precise. It’s laugh-out-loud funny when she so forthrightly directs the line “Let‘s do better tomorrow” into the eyes of Eileen Lacy’s Miss Margaret, an aging actress in Cabaret."
Brette Epstein - nytheatre.com review of "Miss Hope's"
"I just had the pleasure of working with Donna on the comedy series Foot Soldiers. She is a true professional and went above and beyond my expectations to contribute, not only her acting talent, but also her amazing music talent. Donna came up with the perfect theme song for the show and really captured the essence of the show. I owe so much to her contribution and look forward to working with her again. When you hear that sultry voice, please know that it is Donna who is singing. I was blown away!."
Frances Miller - creator/writer/co-producer of "Foot Soldiers"
"Donna Ross is certainly the most natural and inviting of all the performers in this tricky four-dimensional arena."
Mitch Montgomery - Surreal Time Press review of "The Photo Album" at the Game Play Festival
“From her audition through the shooting of her scenes, Donna Ross exhibited a great level of professionalism, fearlessness and comedic timing that helped bring the character I wrote alive. The sex appeal and playfulness were just icing on the cake. With her wide range of skills, I definitely see myself casting Donna in future productions."

“Donna is easy to work with, takes direction well and offers thoughtful insights regarding her characters. She carries with her a great amount of positivity and enthusiasm on set and collaborates well with all involved parties, including the director, cinematographer and other actors. I was so impressed with her performance that I immediately cast her in a lead role in another short fllm. Though I highly recommend her, I encourage you to view her work, as her ability speaks for itself.”
