Tanna Frederick Is Back!
Multi-talented Tanna Frederick returns to Movie Addict HQ on July 17 to update listeners on her new films and her work with Project Cornlight, an initiative to help revitalize the film industry in Iowa.
Tanna is an award-winning actress, director, environmentalist and founder of the Iowa Independent Film Festival in Mason City. She recently wrapped Henry Jaglom’s romantic comedy The “M” Word with Corey Feldman, Michael Imperioli and Frances Fisher. She then went on to make her directorial debut (and star) in a theatre production of Why We Have a Body at the Edgemar Center for the Arts. She is currently in her native Iowa filming The Farm where she stars as a single mother who returns to Iowa to deal with her past.
This October Tanna can be seen starring with Judd Nelson in the Henry Jaglom comedy Just 45 Minutes from Broadway which explores the complex emotional lives of theater folk. The film was adapted from a stage play written by Jaglom.
Tanna starred opposite Noah Wyle in Jaglom’s 2010 romantic comedy Queen of the Lot. She played Maggie Chase, as actress desperate to claw her way off the B-list of action films into major movie stardom. For her performance in her first feature with Jaglom, Hollywood Dreams, Tanna was named Best Actress at WorldFest Houston, Montana International Film Festival, Fargo Film Festival and the Wild Rose Film Festival. The film also took Best Picture honors at the San Luis Obispo Film Festival and Best Comedy at WorldFest Houston. Among Tanna’s other acting honors are “Performer To Watch at Method Fest and a “Maverick” Award from the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival.
