Hannah Barefoot was born in Cody, Wyoming, and was raised on classic films and backyard plays. She realized she wanted to be an actress, singer, and dancer when she first saw Rita Hayworth in the 1944 film, 'Cover Girl', and has followed that dream ever since. She pursued a BFA at the nationally acclaimed Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Wyoming where she studied acting, dancing, and vocal performance.
After college, Hannah moved to Portland, OR, and took a few years off to reevaluate her life. When she finally returned to acting, she switched her emphasis from theatre to film and television. It was in Portland that she received her first TV credit, NBC's "Grimm", developed her comedy and improvisational chops in "The ScreenPrinters" web series, and made a name for herself as a dramatic indie actress with a lead role in the cult favorite, "The Falls: Testament of Love".
Since moving to LA in 2015, Hannah has been fortunate enough to study and work alongside some of the best. Her 2016 credits include the lead in the upcoming feature film DERAILED (MarVista Entertainment), a supporting role opposite David Tennant in the feature film, BAD SAMARITAN (Electric Entertainment), a six-episode recurring role on GOOD GIRLS REVOLT (Amazon), a three episode arc on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS (CBS), guest-stars on NCIS (CBS) and THE LIBRARIANS (TNT), and a co-star on CSI: CYBER (CBS). Her short film, INCENDIO, which she co-wrote, produced, and acted in, premieres in festivals this February of 2017 (more at www.incendiofilm.com).
Hannah believes that persistence and gratitude win the day. Every time.
