Lily Mojekwu returns to Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where she appeared in Romeo and Juliet. Other Chicago credits include: Between Riverside and Crazy (Steppenwolf Theatre Company); Objects in the Mirror (Goodman Theatre); Look, We Are Breathing (Rivendell Theatre Ensemble); and The Commons of Pensacola (Northlight Theatre). Regional credits include five seasons with Lakeside Shakespeare Theatre. Film credits include writer-director Stephen Cone's Princess Cyd and director Kyle Henry's Rogers Park. Television credits include: Mind Games (ABC), Chicago Fire (NBC) and the upcoming I Love Dick (Amazon TV). Lilly studied Psychology as an undergraduate at Lake Forest College, deciding upon acting as a career after she graduated. “I’m a lover of language,” she explains as she talks about Shakespeare. “The conflicts and the stories are timeless and so much fun to sink your teeth into. His plays require a different kind of preparation, but they are so well worth the work.”
