Jeanette Bednar (she/her) is a New York based artist and recent graduate with a BFA in Acting from Montclair State University.
As a creator she aims to make innovative art that challenges the way people think and move through the world. She is particularly interested in physical theatre and has extensive Viewpoints and Suzuki training.
When she isn't acting, you can find Jeanette visiting her roots in North Carolina, training for her next half marathon, painting & drawing, doing yoga, or obsessing over her plants and her golden doodle, Nola.
Jeanette is currently developing an auto-biographical short film about her battle with Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome- a rare chronic illness. She hopes to shed light on the isolating world of invisible illness.
Recently Jeanette produced, directed and performed a movement-piece, Emit, which explores loneliness in all its complexity. The project is in post production.
In June 2021 Jeanette released a video showcase with peers from her Montclair State University BFA Acting class of 2020.
Since graduating, Jeanette has acted in various short films including Juju (dir. Abbey George), Quarter Life Crisis (dir. Raven Smith, Abbey George) and Caretaker (dir. Evan Bradley).
