Christine Spang is a New York City based performer. Born and raised in Miami, Florida. Spang's mother is Cuban and her father is German and thus attributes her German work ethic but Cuban sass to their influences.

Spang is thrilled to be joining the cast & crew of Evening News & can’t wait to see the character of Olivia actualized.
