Anna Stadler is an American actress whose passion became obvious at the age of 6 when she began writing and performing one-act plays for family, friends, neighbors and anyone that would accept a ticket to the performances.
“I was born in 2003 in Charlotte, NC. 6 years ago I moved to coastal SC with my family. My mom, Dad or Grandmother always travel with me for filming and my mom helps manage my career.” Anna Stadler Said.
“I have a brother who is 4 years older than me and is very protective. He’s very supportive of my acting career though. Especially that he can use it as a way to start up conversations with girls.” She added.
Since then, she’s continued formal training in both acting and voice, while also teaching herself keyboard and ukulele. Her focus began in theater, eventually moving to film and TV in 2019. Most recently she’s been cast as lead characters in a feature film currently in pre-production out of the Charleston, SC area and the short films “Collateral Damage” and “Head Over Heels,” as well as supporting roles in the three TV pilots “Harbor Island,” “Traffic-ing” and “Tax Season,” a short film “The Bathroom,” music video “HunnyBuns” and a TV/social media commercial for Cromer’s Peanuts.
Anna Stadler currently has a lead supporting role as Elaine Wren in the motion picture Justice Through Redemption set for release in the winter of 2020.
“I would have to say being a part of the amazing cast/crew of Justice Through Redemption has been one of the best things that’s happened to me. Walt Diddy is such an example of humble ability, but because they are all just really amazing and kindhearted people. yet strong leadership.” Anna Said.
“We are a very diverse cast from many backgrounds, but we came together as family during filming. Such respect for not only each and every one of their acting.” She added.
Anna’s second passion is animal rescue. She’s an active volunteer and foster for several local organizations, and has 3 rescues of her own.
“In my early years I wanted to be a veterinarian because I love all animals. Since then, I realized that acting was my professional calling, so now I focus on volunteering at local animal rescues and help foster their new intakes. Mommy cats with kittens are my specialty.”Anna Said.
As a student, she’s a member of The National Honor Society, as her dedication to education is as focused as her professional career.
And about her influence she said: “My mom because she’s always been so supportive of my career. She does everything from travel with me, helps me practice lines for my auditions, and most of all keeps me laughing. I just bought her a t-shirt that says “A Mom-ager’s Work is Never done” because she’s always willing to help me when I need it”.
About her motives & qualities she said: “Someday I’d love to write, produce and star in a music video. I’m teaching myself keyboard and ukulele and also working on my dancing skills.”
“I am most proud of my determination. I made my mind up a year ago that I wanted to become a professional actor. I researched, attended an open casting call for a talent agency, was offered a contract on the spot and began pursuing my dream. I’ve given up sleepovers with friends, and even attending my prom because I was working on my career. I truly believe you can do anything you set your mind to.
I would say loyalty is my best quality. The original filming of the movie “Justice Through Redemption” began filming in 2018 and people walked off set because of budget problems. I don’t think I could’ve done that. A cast becomes a family and that’s not something that I can walk away from. The lesson is always bigger than just creating a project and furthering your own dream, it’s about supporting other people and their dreams too.” She added.
About her fav. celebrities Anna Said: “The celebrities I most admire are Lizzo and Camila Cabello. They are both extremely body positive, confident in their own skin and are great role models, especially to young girls that feel so much pressure to look/be a certain way.”
