Hollywood, CA (Hollywood Today
) 11/19/2012 – “It’s been absolutely amazing! I went through a lot of hard knocks and pounding the pavement but it’s an exciting place to work; this is my passion and what I’ve given my life to. (Being in Hollywood) is like being in a giant playground always talking about the things you love.” Tanna Frederick, Co-Star of Just 45 Minutes From Broadway
told Hollywood Today about her move from the Midwest to Los Angeles. Originally from Mason City, Iowa Tanna Frederick is no stranger to the performing arts, as the town of 28,000 is surprisingly known worldwide as a hotbed of creativity and culture. Most notably, Mason City native Meredith Wilson was the creator of the iconic musical, The Music Man.
Tanna studied both theater and political science at the University of Iowa before moving to Los Angeles to pursue her passion for acting. Unlike the many who packed their bags and headed West on a wish and a prayer, she has been able to cultivate a successful career on screen and the stage, including her role alongside a very charming and sexy Judd Nelson in Just 45 Minutes From Broadway
, a stage play turned film that explores the complex emotional lives of those in the theater world. Having been compared to greats like Bette Davis, Tanna Frederick is a dynamic actress who brings her commitment and respect for the art to each of her performances.
Though she is currently on location back in Iowa, Tanna Frederick certainly has no plans for taking a break. In fact, along with her upcoming roles in The Rainmaker
and The Farm
, she is also working hard as an athlete and philanthropist. As Co-Founder of Project Save Our Surf (PSOS), a non-profit organization for ocean conservation, she has helped provide assistance to East coasters ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, and sent many underprivileged youth to Camp PSOS where they have an opportunity to learn about nature and conservation on a 250-acre campground.
An amazing beauty inside and out, Tanna Frederick’s talent and spirit is the truly the stuff stars are made of.
