ABOUT

Alyshia Ochse grew up in Northern Kentucky, where she spent her tomboy childhood playing sports and secretly writing poetry. As a true Scorpio, she enjoyed observing the spirited vulnerabilities and mysteries of human beings. A gifted soccer player, Alyshia competed at the state level starting at an early age collecting numerous championship titles with her traveling team. A bad knee injury in her senior year of high school abruptly ended her athletic career. With her athletic aspirations stripped, and the tragic death of her best friend, her identity was in question. Until she found pen and paper.

She journaled every chance she had and started writing intense poetry that helped her understand the world around her and her place in it. Writing was a gateway for her —a way to stand out authentically. Her poetry won contests and was published in books. Written creative expression eventually led her to explore the big screen. It was through acting that she was able to tap deeply into her truth: her ability to embody and see herself in others.

These days, Alyshia is best known as “Lucy” opposite Academy Award Winner, Matthew McConaughey, from the critically-acclaimed and Golden Globe nominated True Detective, as well as her roles in Satisfaction, How I Met Your Mother, Hart of Dixie, General Hospital and Life Sentence. Alyshia’s other credits include roles in such movies as The Other Woman, Parker, Marauders, and the highly anticipated indie film, She’s in Portland.

Though a southern girl at heart, Alyshia has embraced the gorgeous California sun, where she resides with her Mediterranean chef Husband and their cheeky little girl. When she’s not acting, Alyshia spends her time hosting the podcast That One Audition and championing female driven content.
