Ess Hödlmoser


Ess (they/them, he/him) is a trans non-binary actor, stunt performer, and circus artist.

Their commanding on-screen presence has opened the door to roles like “Cindy” (The Boys, S2), “M” (Motherland: Fort Salem, S2 & S3), and “Copperhead” (Code 8).

Starting off in the industry as a stunt performer and stunt double, Ess’s incredible flexibility, surreal movement quality, and grit has brought creatures, monsters, and ghouls to life on TV shows and feature films like “IT”, “A Simple Favour”, “Wish Upon”, The Handmaid’s Tale, Umbrella Academy, What We Do In The Shadows, The Strain, Killjoys, Taken, 12 Monkeys, The Expanse, and more.

Ess’s off-camera work has also garnered them high praise on the world stage: their duo contortion act with performance partner Troy James (chor. Roberto Campanella) won the Prix Moulin Rouge at the prestigious 40th Festival du Cirque de Demain in Paris, France; the Special Prize of the State Circus of Belarus at the 6th International China Circus Festival; and a Golden Buzzer in Paris on La Frace À Un Incroyable Talent.
