De Ann Marie Odom


De Ann Marie Odom is an actor, voice talent, and writer now residing in Los Angeles. She recently relocated to the bright and sunny shores of Southern California after many years in the wet splendor of the Pacific Northwest. De Ann’s love of acting was born from her transient childhood as she’s lived all over the country (having moved 9 times through 8 states during the first 18 years of her life). She has a deep passion for performance in film, television, voiceover, and theatre. Be they for stage or screen, she also revels in table reads and staged readings penned by talented writers to nurture their new works. De Ann is a proud member of Women in Film and Fierce Backbone.

Favorite past plays include Last of the Red Hot Lovers, Steel Magnolias, Dial M for Murder, Behind the Laughter, See How They Run, Blithe Spirit, Little Mary Sunshine, The Boy Friend, Stories from Winnie the Pooh, Tartuffe, The House of Blue Leaves, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Calm Down Mother, and new works like Boise is the Paris of Idaho, One Afterlife to Live, Murder, She Drank, Fierce Backbone’s Gorgeous, which was her first show in Los Angeles, and now The Big Snake, which is her first appearance at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Happiness includes weekly motion picture matinees (at actual movie theatres, hey!), vintage costumes and props, creating 48-hour short films, Gus Van Sant silent takes (she got to perform them while working on his film Restless), Ethel Mermanating, I Love Lucy, Elvis, prairie tales, falling off stages while doing stand-up comedy (um, and other occasions), and performing as a tap dancing, roasted chicken for Intel.
