IN A FEW WORDS - “I’m a warm, natural, girl-next-door who will not hesitate to throw
down if things go south.” :)
Hannah Barefoot is a theatrically trained actress, singer, dancer, writer, and producer.
She was born and raised in Cody, Wyoming to a teacher mother and an engineer father.
Always encouraged to perform from a young age, Hannah grew up dancing, singing
alongside her talented father, and creating backyard plays with her sisters and
neighborhood friends. She pursued a BFA in Theatre and Dance with a minor in Vocal
Performance at the University of Wyoming, then finished her education with a degree in
Drawing and Painting at Portland State University. Hannah has always been an athlete,
both a competitive swimmer and an accomplished dancer for all of her childhood and
well into college. Hannah continues to dance and sing, both professionally and for the
love of it. She is also a kick boxer and has begun incorporating this into her films.
She landed her first leading film role in the LGBT cult favorite, 'The Falls: Testament of
Love', as the jilted Mormon housewife of a man learning to own his sexuality. Her
performance earned excellent reviews for it's grounded nature and raw emotional
power. She has since continued to make a name for herself as a leading lady in the
indie film world, with psychological thrillers like 'Off the Rails', and has appeared in
numerous television shows ranging from a recurring role on Amazon's 'Good Girls
Revolt' to TNT's 'The Librarians'. In her writing and producing, she gravitates toward
creating complex female characters who are basically good but who do bad things. She
wrote, produced, and starred in the dark action comedy, 'Incendio', which screened in
17 festivals internationally and won 'Best Short', 'Best Stunt Choreography', and was
nominated for many others (more at www.incendiofilm.com).
Hannah is the Development Associate of two-time Emmy winning director/producer,
Scott Winant, and together they are creating projects that promote a complex feminist
world-view. She is in development of her own series, a feature, and several shorts.
Hannah believes that persistence and gratitude win the day. Every time.
