Diana Elizabeth Jordan, is a living example of resiliency. Her doctors' had to work on her for 45 minutes before she started breathing on her own. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy (which mildly affects her speech and gait) around age two, Jordan grew up determined not to let adversity stop her from pursuing her dream of being an actor. She has realized that dream and has been cast in over 60 theater productions, over 18 films and television including CBS’s S.W.A.T. . Since the beginning of her career Jordan has refused to be limited to only being cast in disability specific roles but also cast in roles where her disability is incidental to the character or storyline.
Jordan is a member of SAG-AFTRA and The Actors Equity Association. She was the first actor with a disability to obtain a Masters of Fine Arts in Acting from California State University Long Beach (2001). She was the recipient of the 2016 Best Actor Honor for The Easterseals Disability Film Challenge and is one of the featured artists in Liliana Moldovan's new book Eroii Imposibilului, a book featuring multi-disciplined artists with disabilities from around the world. Her current award winning short film Best Friend (written and directed by Cory Reeder) which she co-stars and also coproduced is a hit on the film festival circuit has had over 7.6K views on youtube. Currently, Ms. Jordan is featured as “Ella” in the horror film The Edge of Isolation (written and directed by Jeff Houkal) which can be seen on Amazon.

She is a frequent and in-demand disability influencer for panels focusing on Diversity Equity, Inclusion and Access.
Jordan’s passion for the power of the performance and the expressive arts to be utilized as a life-long learning tool to encourage personal growth, professional development and as an agent social change, lead her to launch her EduTainment production company The Rainbow Butterfly Café in 2015. The R.B.C combines the power of performances, speaking and custom designed expressive arts based workshops to celebrate diversity and disability inclusion, cultivating resiliency, goal setting and visioning.
