Walker Brandt was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California. At a young age, Walker established a love of exploring and adventure in nature and it was there that she developed a special connection with animals and as a result one of her core beliefs, we are all connected. Walker has always maintained this connection by making time in her schedule to commune with nature as often as possible with family and friends. Walker’s desire to be in nature taught her many lessons as a child which evolved into a life passion to improve her understanding through personal growth and engaging the world and opportunity from that perspective.
Walker was emancipated at 16 and moved to Los Angeles and enrolled in courses at LAVC and the Jungian Institute. Still not certain of her career path Walker took classes in business, nutrition science, psychology, & child development as she worked various part-time jobs to support herself. During that time, she was approached by a photographer who encouraged Walker to go into modeling. After a few months, Walker decided to pursue modeling and signed with Elite Model Management. Soon thereafter Walker moved to Milan, Italy and started her professional model and acting career. Her career blossomed in the 1990s where she was featured in major Hollywood productions, including City Slickers, Dante’s Peak & Solar Force, as well as US and international TV shows, including Star Trek-TNG, 90210, and Die Gang–The Waterfront, to name a few. Some of the projects she worked on during that time took her to locations that stand out in her mind as being special gifts such as to South Africa where she was able to meet and spend time with Nelson Mandela before his election, laugh backstage with Shirley McLain when she was on tour in Africa, and play with baby lions and see wild African elephants in their habitat. Another project took her into the countryside of East Berlin while living in Hamburg Germany during the shooting of a TV series.
Walker’s primary focus as an actor in recent years is the commercial side of the business. Her image and talents continue to be engaged in a great number of commercials, Ad campaigns, infomercials, and voiceovers for internationally known brands.
Being the high-energy woman she is, any spare time not dedicated to her family or career is spent taking courses with leading minds to further personal development awareness and health which has been a lifelong passion of hers. She has earned her Nutrition Science Certification, 1st year studies LA School of Homeopathy, completed several MindValley Quests, served as a board member of community organizations, where her responsibilities included organizing the Neighborhood Watch program for a community of 1700, completed the nationally recognized Neighborhood Leadership Program of Long Beach California, established working relationships with the Mayor, Councilman, and various city officials, and continued to take several online college courses while pursuing her career as a performer.
In 2019 Walker began bringing another dream into reality, to share her personal journey over the years through authorship with her first book, AWAKEN – Discovering Yourself Through the Light of Your Innocence. Her book was written with the goal of helping others creatively reinterpret or release beliefs and self imposed limitations, activate their authentic personal contribution to the world, and ultimately seize a life of happiness with lasting positive impact. AWAKEN earned #1 International Bestseller status on its first day of release on 3/30/2020.
