Tanna Frederick recently wrapped production on Henry Jaglom’s romantic mystery“Ovation” starring opposite James Denton. The story is set in the backstage world of theatre where the cast struggles to keep their play afloat while they search for a murder suspect amongst themselves.
She has two films coming out next year -- Jaglom’s romantic comedy “The M Words” (with Corey Feldman, Michael Imperioli and Frances Fisher) will be released in January/February, and “Garner, Iowa” where she stars as a single mother who returns to Iowa (Frederick’s hometown) to deal with her past, will be released in the spring.
She’s also hitting the boards 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.”
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.
