EPISODE DESCRIPTION

In this lively conversation, Tanna Frederick shares how creative people can enjoy successful careers while doing what they love. Tanna Frederick can currently be seen starring in Henry Jaglom’s romantic mystery “Ovation” opposite James Denton. Frederick is also producing and starring in the virtual reality series “Defrost.” Directed by Randal Kleiser, series cast members include Bruce Davison, Harry Hamlin, Christopher Atkins and Carl Weathers. “Defrost” was presented at Sundance’s New Frontier Program and Cannes Film Festival. Next year, she’ll also star as a single mother who returns to Iowa (Frederick’s hometown) to deal with her past in “Garner, Iowa.” Frederick is a mainstay of the Los Angeles theatre community. In 2013, she won the LA Stage and Eddon awards for Best Actress for N. Richard Nash’s “The Rainmaker” at the Edgemar Theatre. 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.” This month Frederick will direct and star in “Sylvia” at the Odyssey Theatre opening on October 21st. In a previous run of the play, the Huffington Post said “Tanna Frederick is truly brilliant as Sylvia. She embodies the fun-loving, childlike spirit of the dog.” Frederick’s performance in her first feature with Jaglom, “Hollywood Dreams,” earned her Best Actress at WorldFest Houston, Montana International Film Festival, Fargo Film Festival and the Wild Rose Film Festival. The film took Best Picture honors at the San Luis Obispo Film Festival and to Best Comedy at WorldFest Houston. She was named Method Fest’s “Performer to Watch” and has also received the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival’s “Maverick” Award. Off-screen, Frederick has proved just as driven and talented. A fitness aficionado who runs daily, Frederick 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 water. She is also founder of the Iowa Film Festival, now in its’ seventh year and was named recipient of the University of Iowa’s Distinguished Alumni Award in 2012. http://www.tannafrederick.com/
