Brooke grew up in Connecticut, where she spent her childhood riding horses inside a English trend, wearing penny loafers in an un-ironic manner and, as Scorpios are wont to do, pondering the mysteries of lifetime.
A gifted ballet dancer, she studied at Manhattan’s Joffrey Ballet School, the Boston Ballet and Rosella Hightower’s school in Cannes, France. By sixteen, she was a company member at fresh England Ballet, where she danced principal roles such as Juliet in Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, the Sugar Plum Fairy in Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, plus the title role in Stravinsky’s Firebird.
As an English major at Yale University, Brooke changed a taste for Romantic poetry, 19th century novels and soy chai lattes, and for a fascination with the rabbit hole which is theater. It was there that she cut her teeth on a broad spectrum of plays which includes Neil Simon’s Rumors, George Bernard Shaw’s Heartbreak Home, and Jean Genet’s The Maids. Currently Brooke resides in Los Angeles, where she acts in television and film and writes for HelloGiggles, Move LifeStyle and The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet.
