Anna Douglas began her performance career in Nashville at the age of 5 while producing an album of children’s songs in a group with her sister and father – Sunday’s Children. By 7 she was alone on stage, starring in Christmas musicals and beating a path towards a lifetime career in performance. Appearing first on television at age 10, beginning a short-lived modeling career at 15, and leading the cast of several shorts films along the way, Anna’s one true love – theatre – remained the focus.
Working both in school and in the various theatres across Nashville, Anna remembers Grease (1998), Brigadoon (2000), The Sound of Music (2003), Footloose (2005), Anything Goes (2007), and Into the Woods (2009) as her favorites. Anna earned her degree in Theatre Performance from The University of Evansville in 2010. After graduation, she was invited to attend the prestigious writer’s conference The New Harmony Project which led her to a life in Los Angeles. She continued to pursue theatre as well as film, starring in several short films and stage productions and garnering the 2014 LA Weekly Award for Best Female Comedy Performance for her role in the world premiere of Brendan Hunt’s award-winning play Absolutely Filthy.
Packing up and moving back to her birthplace of Toronto led to a flourishing TV and film career (Saving Hope, Workin Moms, Ransom), starting a custom costume business, and to writing and performing in event series like Planet Fabulon. Anna most recently recurred in FX’s Mrs. America starring Cate Blanchett, and can be sighted in many of your commercial breaks on network television.
