Acclaimed actress Tanna Frederick returns to talk about her intriguing new movie, Train to Zakopané. An award-winning actress, director, and environmentalist, Tanna was named Favorite Female Star by Movie Addict Headquarters listeners who voted in an e-mail election held in 2012. Her upcoming film, written and directed by Henry Jaglom, takes us back to 1928 Poland prior to World War II. Based on a true story, it deals with two strangers who meet on a train and fall for each other despite their very different backgrounds and attitudes. Tanna's impressive resume includes the following Jaglom films: Hollywood Dreams, The MWord, Irene in Time, Queen of the Lot, Ovation, and 45 Minutes from Broadway. Tanna made her directorial debut while also starring in a theatre production of Why We Have a Body at the Edgemar Center for the Arts. For her performance in Hollywood Dreams, her first feature with Jaglom (who is now her husband), Tanna was named Best Actress at WorldFest Houston, Montana International Film Festival, Fargo Film Festival and the Wild Rose Film Festival. Among Tanna’s other acting honors are Performer To Watch at Method Fest and a Maverick Award from the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival.
Today's Guest: Tanna Frederick, actress, Hollywood Dreams Actress Tanna Frederick If you’re a woman in search of someone else’s emotional train wreck to make you feel better about your own life, film director Henry Jaglom has got a movie or two for you. Maybe it’s his latest, Irene in Time, about a young singer with severe daddy abandonment issues. Or maybe you’d like his previous film, 2008’s Hollywood Dreams, about a would-be actress who oozes charisma but gets so nervous in every social situation she makes you nervous. Order from Amazon.com by clicking the DVD above TANNA FREDERICK podcast excerpt: "With Henry Jaglom, people either love his films or they hate his films. There isn't really an in between. Henry demands the actors take all of their subtext of what's going on and use it as their through-line, their dialogue. You walk away after watching Henry's films feeling better about yourself—'So I guess I'm not the only one who can be neurotic at times.' What drives him is making people not feel alone. It's human emotion." Tanna Frederick is the common thread between these films. She’s the star of both, a big presence on screen. It could be that huge mane of cascading red hair, but I think it’s actually the emotions that pour out from her. The story of how she got to this point is pure Hollywood and I hope to entice her to tell it, but suffice to say that Jaglom already has plans for her to star in a sequel to Hollywood Dreams. And she’s currently appearing live in a Jaglom play, “Just 45 Minutes from Broadway,” at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica, California. You can order tickets online at Edgemar.org.

691 Henry Jaglom, director, Tanna Frederick, actress, "Queen of the Lot"
Mr. Media Interviews by Bob Andelman
Today's Guest: Actress Tanna Frederick, star of Queen of the Lot and Irene in Time. Order from Amazon.com by clicking the DVD above Scorsese and DeNiro have this kind of relationship. So do Spielberg and Hanks. And Scorsese has it with DiCaprio, too, now that I think of it. Every so often, a director finds his match with an actor who “gets” their material, their vibe, their je ne sais qua. That’s what’s happening between writer/director Henry Jaglom and actress Tanna Frederick. HENRY JAGLOM audio excerpt: "The chemistry between Noah Wyle and Tanna Frederick takes this film to a whole other level. Every review is talking about it. They have this strange, funny, romantic chemistry; you can't take your eyes off of them." Order 'Irene in Time' starring Tanna Frederick and Henry Jaglom, available from Amazon.com by clicking on the DVD cover above! Queen of the Lot — a sequel to Hollywood Dreams — opens at selected theaters in Los Angeles on Friday, November 19. It is the third movie that Jaglom has written and directed in which Frederick has starred; they also worked together on Irene in Time. Queen is actually their fourth collaboration, I believe, if you count her starring in his play, “Just 45 Minutes From Broadway,” which ran for several months this summer at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica, California and which they’ve already filmed for a movie. In her three Jaglom starring roles, Frederick typically plays some version of an emotional train wreck. Different characters in Irene in Time and Hollywood Dreams/Queen of the Lot, but – like DeNiro working under Scorsese’s direction — a recognizable, consistent presence. Jaglom is a writer and director with whom many in Hollywood — particularly women — would love to work, not because his films are big blockbusters but because of the detail and sensitivity he gives to women’s roles. His career goes back to his days as an editor on Easy Rider with Dennis Hopper, although this Lee Strasburg-trained Method actor also appeared in TV shows such as "Gidget" and "The Flying Nun." (As a boy, I loved "The Flying Nun." Talk about a concept ripe for a remake!) An interesting note about Jaglom’s career: he wrote and co-starred in Orson Welles’ final film, 1987’s Someone to Love, which also introduced the world to David Duchovny. In recent years, Jaglom has worked with a regular ensemble of actors, led by Tanna Frederick (Listen) and including Karen Black (Listen) and David Proval (Listen), all of whom have previously been guests on Mr. Media.
