Blair Bomar, El Rey Network's 'From Dusk Till Dawn'
This fall Blair Bomar can be seen starring in season two of Robert Rodriguez’s horror series, “From Dusk Till Dawn” on El Rey network and Netflix. Based on the 1996 cult classic film written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Rodriguez, the show follows the Gecko brothers and the Fuller family as they fight until dawn in a strip club run by vampires to survive. Bomar plays the role of Alice, head waitress at Jacknife Jed’s who will eat your heart out… literally. The series has been a #1 pick on Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List” and was also named one of the “Hottest New Fiction Shows” by The Hollywood Reporter.
Born in Dallas, Texas, Bomar grew up in a creative family consisting of her mother (a yogi), her father (a Jack Nicholson look a like) and her brother (a real estate agent who plays a mean guitar). She discovered her desire to entertain at the age of nine while on her first trip to New York City to see three shows with her mother. The third show was “Sunset Boulevard” on Broadway with Glenn Close and she fell instantly in love. Initially a dancer, Bomar earned a degree in Theater and Dance at University of Texas. She also studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York.
She booked her first role in BANDSLAM (Summit Entertainment) opposite Aly Michalka, Vanessa Hudgens and Lisa Kudrow in 2009 and has since appeared in several indie projects and guest starred on CBS’ hit series, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Bomar can also be seen in the recently released film ALWAYS WATCHING: A MARBLE HORNETS STORY, which is the feature film continuation of YouTube’s popular Marble Hornets series. She plays Nikki, the local weather girl whose forecasts prove ominous among a bevy of unsuspecting victims.
In her downtime, Bomar enjoys practicing and teaching both yoga and Pilates. On the charity front, she supports various organizations that raise awareness for mental health issues, and women’s rights and empowerment. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
