Sasha Krane

The nephew of legendary acting teacher Lee Strasberg, Sasha Krane trained from an early age as a Method actor in New York, with Geoffrey Horne, and developed a passion for theatre and film. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Sasha began writing and directing stage plays while assisting Sally Kirkland in her acting classes at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute. 

The production of his first work Leftover Hearts at the Marilyn Monroe Theatre garnered strong reviews, and was soon followed by Astyanax, a short film he wrote and directed. His next short film A Little Death won Best Romantic Drama at the New York International Film Festival.

After writing and directing several more shorts films, Sasha directed the critically acclaimed British drama Solitary (Electric Entertainment). Described as “Spare, nuanced and painfully real” Solitary was the recipient of seventeen festival awards (including seven Best Feature wins and two Best Director nominations) and was the opening night film of the London Independent Film Festival where it won Best UK Feature.

In addition to writing and directing, Sasha is the Strasberg Institute’s Creative Director.
