Glennon Anderson (previous bio)
Glennon was brought up in deepest Suffolk where her love of all things folkie were born. She is an impulsive, dedicated, actress whose travels have seen her move to Ireland all in the name of a bet! She feels a great sense of connection with her Celtic roots and certainly "stands sure" on what she believes, as her family motto suggests.
Glennon describes herself as a little elfin folkie with a rather loud exocentric side, and when she is not on stage, behind a microphone or knee deep in scripts, you'll find her teaching drama to adults and kids all over London and the UK.
Her acting work includes: 'Havisham' (BAC), Saint Dinah in The Trial of Saint Eustis (The London Playwrights' Collective & The Colour House Theatre) BigSister/Speaker in Zoop, Zoop?!* (The Arcola Theatre), Maria in PIT (The ICA), Sana's Mother in Denied (The Humble Theatre Co.) The Maid in Blood Wedding (Nadine's Window), Performer in An Extremely Memorable Emergency and Drink with the Uncertainty Division (The Uncertainty Division), Miriam Aarons in The Women, Olivia in Twelfth Night, Nina in The Seagull (Drama Studio London), Simone Jacobs (lead) in Curiculum Vitae (Lonley Crow Productions LTD) Jess in Aftermath (Southampton Productions) Alien in Touchdown Bay (Sci-Fi Channel) Donna in I Killed Your Cat* (Met Film Schol), Nina in Grab One Thing (Fifth Story Films), Demon In Parkside Hell House (Hard House Pictures LTD) Narrator in Cast member in series One to Seven Radio Plays (The Bunbury Banter Theatre Co.).
* ‘Zoop, Zoop’ was nominated for a Channel 4 political award and ‘I Killed Your Cat’ won a Shooting People award.
Whilst living in Ireland during her late teens, Glenn starred in several productions, including playing Fairy Goose Down in the panto "Mother Goose", a voice production of "Under Milk Wood", and principle female in "Undecided". Before abandoning Britain for the green shores of Ireland, Glenn starred in many productions all over the UK, including a UK tour of "Alice in Wonderland" in which she played Alice.
Following graduation from drama school, Glenn worked on stage in numerous projects, including 'Havisham' at the BAC, 'The Trial of St Eustis' for The London Playwrights Collective, ‘PIT’ for the ICA, The Humble Theatre Company’s controversial show "Denied" (previewed at the Royal Haymarket) 'Havisham' at the BAC and the award nominated show ‘Zoop Zoop’ produced by the Arcola Theatre. She also starred in many projects in front of the camera including ‘Aftermath’ shown on the Sci-fi Channel and ‘I killed Your Cat’, winner of a prestigious Shooting People award
Before Drama Studio, Glenn studied at dance school mainly to work on her physicality on stage, which constantly came into practice during her years on the stage; whether it was for the part of Annie Wilkes, an all singing and dancing maid, or an ancient Lady Wishfort! She was also part of numerous projects both on stage, on tour and in front of the camera, these included being part of a footlights improvisation company, The Uncertainty Division, with whom she worked on two fringe shows.
