Birthday: December 30
Anna Wood first set foot onstage at the age of 7 in a production of “Peter Pan.” Now, she is perhaps best-known to television audiences for her roles on “Reckless,” on the Network, and “Deception.”
At 18, Wood directed and starred in the play “Out of Gas on Lovers Leap” at the Levering Orchard Theatre near her home town of Mount Airy, N.C. The theater was in the orchard where Wood had her first job, selling cherries.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the North Carolina School of the Arts, Wood moved to New York where she landed roles in the Edward Burns-directed feature “Nice Guy Johnny” and the television series “Royal Pains.” Her additional television credits include “The Good Wife,” NCIS: LOS ANGELES, “Cold Case” and MADAM SECRETARY, all on the Network, “Mad Men,” “Brothers and Sisters” and “The Following.” Also, she played a key supporting role in the super-powered feature film “Chronicle.”
Wood divides her time between Los Angeles and New York and can often be found practicing guitar, piano or her newest addition...the mandolin.
Her birthday is Dec. 30. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram @annawoodyall.
