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 took a few years off to reevaluate her life, and worked jobs ranging from loan officer to berry farmer. When she finally returned to acting, she switched her emphasis from theatre to film and television. She received her first TV credit on 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 very recent credits include the lead in the feature film ‘OFF THE RAILS’ (MarVista Entertainment, currently airing on Lifetime), 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, just won ‘Best Short’ at the Portland International Film Festival and is currently in festivals nationwide (more at www.incendiofilm.com).
Hannah believes that persistence and gratitude win the day. Every time.
