The Mac Wire Spotlight: Rebecca Bruder Hits The Mark

In New York, where the competitive actor professional seems more intense with each passing day, every so often a new face comes along that feels like a perfect fit. REBECCA BRUDER, hailing from Clearwater, Florida, is one such case. Growing up in Georgia, her inner actress was revealed and she began to study acting, voice, movement and dance. She even gained a BFA in Acting from the University of North Carolina. In 2006, Rebecca travelled to Scotland as a participant in the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival. She performed in the satirical comedy and Tony Award winning musical, Urinetown, which was being staged there. She humbly describes the entire experience as a pivotal moment in which she truly learned to embrace her quirky, goofy self and gain trust in her own quiet assurance. With performances under her belt such as The Tempest, Picasso at the Lapin Agile and Evil Dead; the Musical, it is clear that her available range of character portrayal is expansive. Rebecca exposes a little giggle as she describes her time in Evil Dead. “I rolled around on the floor soaked in fake blood and it was in that moment I completely lost all of my inhibitions!” Her broad experience also extends into the quirky independent film world. Never taking herself too seriously and a major admirer of offbeat Wes Anderson productions, Rebecca hopes to flex her comedic side by taking on intelligent humor in Film and Television. She fantasizes of working with the likes of Gene Hackman and Meryl Streep but admittedly has intently followed Anne Hathaway’s career with great admiration and respect. Having aligned herself with noted theatrical manager William Schill, several significant opportunities await her in film, stage and TV. Adds Schill, “She’s a captivating individual; just what’s needed in many of the NY-TV shows being shot here right now, like ‘Blue Bloods’ and ‘Person Of Interest.’ She has exactly what these shows are looking for. A formidable presence.”

Remember the name, Rebecca Bruder; you’ll see it in lights shortly.
