Alanna Thompson was born in Oak Lawn, Illinois. Moved to Farmington Hills,
Michigan at the age of eight where she landed her first acting debut as Charlie
Brown in a local community production of, "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown".
After this first dose of acting, Alanna became a theater junkie as she continued to
participate in community theater, college productions and independent films as an
undergraduate student at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. After
graduation, she moved to New York City, to an apartment the size of a small
closet, in order to study with acting coaches such as Mary Boyer, Roz Coleman,
Allan Miller, as well as instructors at The Lee Strasberg Institute. She is a
member of RGS, a New York City based improv group and volunteers for the
Prison Creative Arts Project, in which she facilitates improv seminars in various
correctional facilities. She is currently working in film, television, as well as
theater... most recently playing Ophelia in the New York production of
Fortinbras. Alanna is a blackbelt in Kickboxing, trains in Gracie Jiu-jitsu and
can sneeze on cue.
DJ Perry is remarkably as captivating in life as he is on the silver screen. This
gifted actor and producer endlessly entertains the cast and crew with stories from
his earlier projects and films. He is not only talented, driven and able to
consistently deliver unique and compelling performances... he is also a hawk at
Scrabble, which I hope to beat him at one day SOON!
