New "Kahnversations" Podcast with Actor Alanna Ubach!


In this episode of "Kahnversations," we interview Alanna Ubach.

Alanna Noël Ubach was born in Downey, California, USA and is of Puerto Rican and Mexican decent. A chameleon-like actress and voice over talent, she is best known for her roles in MEET THE FOCKERS, RANGO, the Peabody Award- winning MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE, HUNG, LEGALLY BLONDE, WAITING, and her portrayal of Jo Frumpkis in Bravo's first scripted series,  GIRLFRIENDS' GUIDE TO DIVORCE. She was recently seen in the Netflix film TO THE BONE, alongside Lily Collins and Keanu Reeves, and has a voiceover role in Pixar's upcoming COCO. She has voiced several cartoon roles on series such as EL TIGRE, WELCOME TO THE WAYNE, TEAMO SUPREMO and HANDY MANDY!  

Ubach is hardly recognizable from one character to the next, leveraging her broad width of versatility on stage, screen, and animation. She began acting professionally at the age of five. Quoted as "an exceptionally talented and protean actress" by The New York Times and Variety, Ubach made her Off-Broadway debut at the age of fifteen in CLUB SODA. She later starred in KINDERTRANSPORT at the Manhattan Theater Club and PATRIOTIC BITCH, a one woman show at New York's Harold Clurman Theater.

Alanna resides in Los Angeles with her husband, Thomas Russo.

There are so many inspiring podcasts with fabulous stars out there. But their careers feel light years away from ours, don’t they? Wouldn’t it be great to hear from the guy who just booked his first pilot? Or the kid finally doing a studio pic after a bunch of low budget indies? Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in Brentwood? We’re producing “Kahnversations,” a podcast that provides access to THOSE people -- your immediate predecessors -- so that you can learn from them while their battle scars are still fresh.

In “Kahnversations,” our own Ryan Bailey interviews some of Lesly Kahn & Company’s working actors, directors, and writers in order to learn how they got started in Hollywood, the challenges and hurdles they faced, and how they overcame the odds. (They also dish out some crazy stories!) Listen in and enjoy as these entertainers speak candidly about their paths, processes, and experiences. You might even hear a bit about how Lesly and the Kahnstitute have influenced and shaped their careers.
