Gillian Pensavalle Biography

A born and raised New Yorker, Gillian is a karaoke enthusiast who says hello to dogs on the street (but always asks permission first). Gillian is unabashedly House Stark and would love to talk to you about "Game of Thrones." Her main goal in life is to have a direwolf.

Gillian co-created the comedy series "The Residuals" with her husband Michael Paul Smith, who writes and directs the show. People think they're crazy for being married and working so closely together but they haven't killed each other yet, so that's pretty great. Gillian stars as Valerie Winters and is also the show's sole editor.

Through her sketch comedy work she's appeared opposite Horatio Sanz, Demetri Martin, Human Giant and more.

Gillian has extensive hosting experience including the 8-time NY Emmy Award winning series "NYC Soundtracks." You can also see her hosting videos on the award winning Buzz60. Her videos have over 20 million views, and are distributed across thousands of outlets including AOL, The Huffington Post, and MSN.

But seriously, she really just wants to talk to you about "Game of Thrones."
