I have an updated bio on imdb and now my profile has two separate, almost the same but not the same, mini bios. I've asked that the older version get deleted. Hopefully they will do that. imdb is a little strict. Here's the updated bio:
“Best known as the Rosa, Miguel’s doting grandmother on Cobra Kai (Netflix), Rose Bianco is a classically trained actress. A few of her other notable small screen credits include a recurring role on Being Mary Jane with Gabrielle Union, New Amsterdam starring Ryan Eggold, and the upcoming Wandavision. On the big screen, Rose was most recently seen in Ric Roman Waugh’s Greenland and a Netflix original movie Project Power, and in 2021 will appear in a supporting role in The Tomorrow War with Chris Pratt. Born and raised in Chicago, Rose made her acting debut at the Victory Gardens Theatre and shortly after went to DePaul University as a Speech and Drama major. She also studied acting for two years with Ted Liss. She worked with the theater company Les Nickelettes in San Francisco and originated the role of “Crystal Glitz” in The Didi Glitz Story: I’d Rather Be Doing Something Else based on Diane Noomin’s underground comix character Didi Glitz. After gaining an Equity card in Ed Bullins’ City Preacher at the famed Magic Theatre, Rose relocated to New York, studied with Julie Bovasso and Bill Hickey, and appeared in various showcases including a New Dramatist production, Public Transportation. Rose took some time away from the spotlight to fulfill her most important role as a mom, and returned to show business in Atlanta just as the city became known as the ‘Hollywood of the South.'”
Hannah Asleson is first up. Hannah is a really pretty, hard working, athletic actress with improv skills and just everything positive. I met her briefly at Dave Pileggi’s The Creative Movement studio. She teaches (or, taught) some kind of combination acting/yoga. I guess that’s not happening anymore. It’s great listening to Hannah’s perspective.
Brook Spivey is funny. She is taking time off to start her youngun off right — yay! But (like me, when I was first stuck at home with a toddler, living the civilian life… Years ago) i’m sure she felt the need to do something artistic, creative. So she started a podcast. She interviewed a lot of people, including myself. The podcast will launch on June 1. I don’t even know what platform yet, hopefully I can find it on my “podcast” app on my iPhone. Brooke, you will just have to let me know more.￼￼￼.
UPDATE: I found her podcast on my mac by just typing in “Brookita Talks” so it is easy to find even for the podcast-challenged!
I had new pictures taken; new headshots coming, and a couple of lifestyle pictures. Nice photographer, that @TracyBosworthPage ! I love that lady. Above is a picture Tracy fixed up for me in advance — she’s cool like that. 🙂
“Rose Bianco has many film and television credits, and is probably best known for her recurring role as Miguel’s hilarious grandmother in the highly successful Netflix series, Cobra Kai.
Rose was born in Chicago and moved around the country, working in theatre, commercials and occasionally television. For the past 20 years Rose has been living in Atlanta, Georgia, where she raised her children and then returned to the business of acting. This year, Rose appeared in season 3 of Cobra Kai, and has been able to shake off the pandemic blues by garnering roles in the movie Red Notice, as well as Doom Patrol and a new limited series, Dopesick (airing later this year on HBO Max and Hulu).
Rose will also be appearing in the upcoming film The Tomorrow War, with Chris Pratt and Sam Richardson. Her previous work includes recurring on BET’s Being Mary Jane, guest star spot in New Amsterdam, and a memorable cameo in Wandavision. Additionally she appeared in recently released films Capone, TheQuarry, and Greenland. This summer Rose will be working on an independent film, Haint; she is excited and pleased to be working with up and coming filmmaker Gaby McNicoll.”
I am very excited for the premiere of #TheTomorrowWar with Chris Pratt, coming soon to a television screen near you courtesy of #AmazonPrimeVideo. I worked on this film in 2019. The scope of this film is epic and I #CANTWAIT
Here is just a sampling of the sweet interviews — here Peter and Brihana Cobra Kai Kompanion interviewed me after Season 3 came out and it was like buttah…. these guys are like old friends.
This guy Shamoon — oh my he is a respectful, courteous and sharp young man. It was a very nice interview!
Chris from Hellblazerbiz is all heart; he’s a real mensch and I think may have been the first Cobra Kai fan with a vlog to interview me. It put me quite at ease as it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be- thanks to this lovely gent.
Here’s something we can all feel good about – Cobra Kai is coming to NetFlix. Seasons 1 and 2 will all stream starting Friday, August 28. Season 3 coming right around the corner. This is EXCELLENT news! ❤ #CobraKaiOnNetFlix all day every day
