Sharon Beth Interviews Tanna Frederick who will star in Henry Jaglom’s romantic comedy “Queen of the Lot” this fall. In the film, an electronic ankle bracelet isn't about to stop up-and-coming actress Maggie Chase (Tanna Frederick) from the two things she craves the most: real fame and true love. Maggie is desperate to claw her way off the B-list & into major stardom. Things get complicated when a trip home to meet Dov's legendary family introduces Maggie to the world of Hollywood Royalty & to her boyfriend's brother Aaron, a struggling writer who can actually see who Maggie is behind the ingénue facade. ReelReviews.com says of the chemistry between Frederick & Wyle, “their ‘opposites attract’ banter reminds me of old-time movie couples like Tracy and Hepburn. And their onscreen chemistry is undeniable.” Frederick's performance in her first feature with Jaglom, “Hollywood Dreams,” earned her Best Actress kudos at the Montana International Film Festival and at the Fargo Film Festival, and propelled the film to Best Picture honors at the San Luis Obispo Film Festival and the Best Comedy award at WorldFest Houston. Last year she was named Method Fest’s “Performer to Watch” and 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 recently ranked 52nd out of 1,321 women in her division in the LA Marathon. She is also an expert at Tae Kwon Do, and is a passionate surfer. She founded “Project Save Our Surf,” an annual surfing event that benefits various ocean charities. She is also founder of the Iowa Film Festival, which debuted successfully four years ago and has tripled in size. But whatever her endeavor, Tanna Frederick brings passion and imagination, and seems poised to find great success on the road ahead.
