Our Guest Today:
Ruth Connell recently filmed Nandor Fodor and The Talking Mongoose with Simon Pegg and Minnie Driver, directed by Adam Segal. She begins shooting Dead Boy Detectives this September. Created by Steve Yockey (The Flight Attendant) and produced by Greg Berlantti with Neil Gaiman as EP, it will air on HBO Max early 2023. This follows on from a 6 season run on the CW show Supernatural where she started out as a guest star in her first USA TV show and went on to become fan favourite Rowena, Queen of Hell! In the UK Ruth built up a strong theatre profile playing lead roles in award winning productions like Goethe’s Faust (Royal Lyceum Edinburgh), Men Should Weep (UK No1 National Tour), No Mean City (Citizens Theatre Glasgow). She was nominated as “Best Actress” for her performance as a female Captain Hook in “Peter Pan: The Boy Who Hated Mothers” at Noah Wylie’s The Blank Theatre in LA. Ruth can also be heard as the voice of Princess Merida for Disney/Pixar in several Brave recordings and Video Games.
