Current life: Rosemary has lived in 5 states but now enjoys living in LA and exploring every aspect of the acting and writing world. Studying and working on film production and editing is also part of current activities.
She discovered acting while living in Albuquerque, NM when an opportunity arose to be a stand-in on Elvis Has Left the Building with Kim Basinger. Her Actors Studio teacher encouraged her to stretch, go out and experience more auditions. After being featured in Coyote Waits with Wes Studi, she later landed the choice role of Rose in August Wilson’s Fences at the Adobe Theatre.
After leaving NM to go back to her home in Albany NY she joined and became part of the Board of Upstate Independence(UI), a film community committed to supporting every aspect of film making. She was cast in many of their film projects and did several PSAs for the NYS Department of Health.
Moving down to NYC she experienced another landmark role. Emmy winner Roger Robinson was her husband in her first short film, Candy written and directed by an NYU student. His professionalism was infectious.
