Jeanette Bednar (she/her) is a NJ/NYC based actor and filmmaker, with a BFA in Acting from Montclair State University.
Jeanette is interested in stories that challenge 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 & Michigan, training for her next half marathon, painting & drawing, or obsessing over her plants and her golden doodle, Nola.
After graduating into a pandemic and healing from a life-altering surgery for a rare stomach condition, Jeanette is excited to start creating again. She is currently developing a film that explores her battle with Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome, through which she hopes to shed light on the isolating world of invisible illness.
In early 2021 Jeanette produced, directed and performed a movement-piece, Emit, which explores loneliness in all its complexity. The project is embedded, below.
In late summer 2022 Jeanette will be filming Quarter Life Crisis, a web-series by writer and fellow MSU alum, Raven Smith.
