Mini Bio (1)
Alanna Blair (they/them) specializes in the unexpected.
You may have seen Alanna attempt assassination on The Blacklist's Season 7 finale, or take a fall for their student in New Amsterdam's pilot. Dig deeper and you'll find characters like a reptilian bassist (LES Asides), a pregnant heroin survivor (Spring Street). An ongoing collaboration with improv-focused filmmaker Daniel Kremer has resulted in seven films so far, with characters ranging from a wide-eyed New York noob (A Simple Game of Catch) to a con artist inspired by Marie Castaldo (Even Just).
In apocalyptic short film Prime Matter, Alanna's character Celia is stuck between their frantic sister and a free shuttle bus. Alanna was also Prime Matter's cowriter and sound editor.
Stage projects include "Above Us," a devised two-character rooftop drama (New York Fringe Festival), and "The Waste Land" adapted to stage (Edinburgh Fringe Festival). Alanna's character as Becky on a Mission in "Unrepresentable" is a call to action for white actors to demand intersectional feminism in the entertainment industry.
Alanna sports a BFA from CalArts, with New York training from Apartment 929, The Barrow Group, and Difficult Women. A livelong lover of music, they produce and dj drum and bass music as TGRbass. Alanna sings and plays bass guitar in rock bands including Just Fabulous, Sumpumps, and Sababa.
