Since receiving her BFA at Juilliard, Angela Pierce has enjoyed a rich career in theater, film, and television. The Seattle Theatre review had this to say of her portrayal of Blanche Dubois in a revival of A Streetcar Named Desire: “I’m thoroughly convinced that, after watching Pierce make every Williams line feel like he wrote it just for her, this gifted actress could make the phone book sound like Shakespeare.” Angela has appeared in episodes of Law & Order, Medium, Criminal Minds, Private Practice, Lie to me, and 30 Rock. She has also starred with Al Pacino in Barry Levinson’s You Don’t Know Jack for HBO. In Unburden, Angela heroically assumes a mother’s heavy heart to become the life force of the story.
