Carolyn Hennesy To Host the 5th Annual Indie Series Awards

Emmy Award-nominated actress Carolyn Hennesy will those the 5th Annual Indie Series Awards on April 2, 2014 at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood.

Hennesy dazzled as the deliciously vicious "Rosalyn Harris" on Alan Ballʼs critically acclaimed HBO series TRUE BLOOD. Hennesy joined the cast for the fifth season of the sleek vampires-meet-world saga and has fast become a fan favorite. As Rosalyn, the ageless vamp with a Texas twang, Hennesy is at the top of her game. She tosses one-liners like firecrackers, occasionally enjoys a juicy stake, and gleefully partakes in old-timey interrogation.

Prior to TRUE BLOOD, Hennesy was best known for her memorable work as "Barbara Coman" on ABCʼs COUGAR TOWN and and her current Emmy nominated run as "Diane Miller" on ABC's GENERAL HOSPITAL. Kids across America also know her as the hilariously haughty Mrs. Chesterfield on Disney Channelʼs JESSIE. On the big screen, Hennesyʼs credits include CLICK starring Adam Sandler, LEGALLY BLONDE 2 with Reese Witherspoon, TERMINATOR 3 starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and the upcoming HYBRIDS with co-star, Paul Sorvino.

Web Series include MOTHERLOVER, SINGLE SIBLINGS and the upcoming zombie comedy ACTING DEAD.

Hennesy received her training at the esteemed American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Her razor sharp comedic timing was honed as a member of The Groundling's Sunday Company and in ACME Theatreʼs main company. Hennesy has appeared in over a hundred productions worldwide. Among other accolades, the LA Drama Critics Circle has distinguished her with the Natalie Schafer Award and the LA Stage Alliance has honored her with an Ovation Award.

Hennesy's creative endeavors also include a successful career as a writer. She created the wildly popular “Pandora” (Bloomsbury USA) childrenʼs book series as well as penned the New York Times Bestseller “The Secret Life of Damian Spinelli” (Hyperion).

When not on set, Hennesy is privileged to lend her time and talent to a number of causes including caring for our wounded warriors, animal rescue, and fitness for kids. She lives in her native Los Angeles.
