Mini Bio (1)

Alanna Blair specializes in the unexpected.

You may have seen her take a fall for her student in the pilot for New Amsterdam, or scream and bleed profusely in Blue Bloods' Season 6 finale. Dig a little deeper and you'll find a very pregnant, perpetually recovering addict (Spring Street), a snarky vegan killjoy (The Idiotmaker's Gravity Tour), a lost soul wandering the LA canals (Frogtown), and a mysterious stowaway (Precious Wheels Above). An ongoing collaboration with improv-focused filmmaker Daniel Kremer spans six films (so far). On the stage, her solo adaptation of "The Waste Land" by TS Eliot took her to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and she co-devised the two-woman rooftop drama "Above Us" for the New York Fringe Festival. Her cameo as Becky on a mission in "Unrepresentable" is a call to action for white women in the entertainment industry.

Alanna sports a BFA from CalArts, with New York Training from the Folster Studio, Apartment 929, and the Barrow Group. She also djs as Bulletproof Tiger, plays bass guitar, and co-runs DeBlair Foster through Anjellicle Cat Rescue.

Walking in her dad's dj footsteps, Alanna spins around the NYC underground as TGRbass, half of duo TankTop NYC, and the founder of Basssocial. Her djing and acting worlds merged in the webseries "Hustling", where she portrayed a dj and scored two scenes.
After moving to the east coast, Alanna teamed with "Manson: the Musical" friends Alex Dunbar and J Steinberg to form the epic garage-funk-punk-comedy band SABABA Rocksyourfaceoff.
Alanna studied piano throughout childhood, then moved her focus to mallet percussion. She learned to play guitar at Strings N Things, Memphis's legendary guitar store, and advanced to bass guitar in NYC.
While at CalArts, Alanna studied creative writing with Anthony McCann, Maggie Nelson and Matias Vieneger. She has two poetry compilations: "Stones Trains Fire Flight" and "A Hundred Pieces of Time".
