Acclaimed Actress Tanna Frederick
The award-winning and very busy Tanna Frederick returns to Movie Addict Headquarters on February 25th to discuss The M Word, her new film with Michael Imperioli, Corey Feldman and Frances Fisher. She will also update listeners on her other two upcoming movies -- Ovation and Garner, Iowa. In Ovation, a romantic mystery from Henry Jaglom, Tanna stars opposite James Denton. And in Garner, Iowa, she plays a single mother who returns to Iowa to deal with her past.
This acclaimed actress has also just ended an almost year-long performance in The Rainmaker at the Edgemar Theatre in Santa Monica. The Los Angeles Times gave it Critics’ Choice and said, “The standout of this terrific cast is Tanna Frederick’s acerbically yearning Lizzie…It’s a transformation not to be missed.”
Tanna's performance in her first feature with Jaglom, Hollywood Dreams, earned her Best Actress at WorldFest Houston, Montana International ilm Festival, Fargo Film Festival and the Wild Rose Film Festival. The film took Best Picture honors at the San Luis Obispo Film Festival and Best Comedy at WorldFest Houston. Tanna was named Method Fest’s “Performer to Watch” and has also received the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival’s “Maverick” Award.
Off-screen, Tanna has proved just as driven and talented. A fitness aficionado who runs daily, Tanna ranked 52nd out of 1,321 women in her division in the LA Marathon. She is a second-degree Tae Kwon Do blackbelt and a passionate surfer. She founded “Project Save Our Surf,” a non-profit that promotes clean oceans and clean water initiatives. She is also founder of the Iowa Film Festival, now in its’ seventh year. She was named the recipient of the University of Iowa’s Distinguished Alumni Award in 2012 and returned there this year to speak at their commencement ceremony.
Tanna is indeed an inspiring actress, surfer, marathoner and philanthropist!
