Mini Bio (1)

Autumn Withers is equally at home in comedic or dramatic roles whether on stage, screen, or television. From her portrayal of a happyish, not-so-sober attorney who cheats on her librarian husband in dark comedy indie-film Avalanche to her recurring role in the seriously absurd Sundance short and series Catherine alongside Jenny Slate to a nature-loving mother fighting against a GMO giant in Monarch, Autumn is not one to pigeonhole. A familiar face, her on-camera work encompasses Modern Family, Grey's Anatomy, Masters of Sex, Army Wives, Growing Up Fisher to the gritty feature film of redemption, Any Day. Her stage credits span dancing with the famed Radio City Rockettes to Broadway musical "Yo' Alice" directed by tap legend Maurice Hines to starring as Ann Deever in Arthur Miller's drama "All My Sons" to the sold-out run of "Is There Sex After Marriage?" in Los Angeles. Her formal training includes Steppenwolf West, The Groundlings School, North Carolina School of the Arts, and University of Georgia, graduating summa cum laude.

With a budding career behind the camera, Autumn co-produced indie-film Avalanche along with real-life partner Gideon Emery; co-wrote, produced and starred in award-winning comedy short Autumn & George directed by Guy Norman Bee; and co-produced news parody webseries E&N with Ed Neusbit for Funny or Die. Autumn is also one half of the female writing duo, Rytum, with Ryann Ferguson. They are perhaps Hollywood's only writing team to be matchmade by their parents, who were committed hippies together in the 70's. They have penned five female-centric pilots and one historically based feature film currently in development. They bring a sense of worldliness and a desire to shed light on the lesser-known perspectives of the female hero to their slate of projects. Driven to be part of the changing landscape for female creators, Autumn founded the Hollywood Women's Collective in 2015, a membership-based women's community dedicated to supporting women creatives and engendering a spirit of support, collaboration, and giving back.
