Annie Dow is, in the words of Dustin Hoffman, “simply said: an actor, and a good one.” She recently made her New Jersey stage debut at Passage Theatre Company in the world premiere of Tanya Saracho’s (How To Get Away With Murder, Looking) new play Song For The Disappeared, appearing as Mila — the Mexican trophy wife with secret machinations. Her performance was received to critical acclaim: the New York Times praised her portrayal as “touching”, while others described her as “hilarious” and commended her “ability to create humor in a dark environment."
Born and raised in Monterrey, México, Annie is a first generation immigrant who first came to the United States in pursuit of a college education; she is the first woman in her family to finish college, earning her BFA in Drama and Psychology at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she focused her studies on the collaborative development of new works and contemporary performance of classical text. Annie’s Mexican upbringing and transition to the US has been essential to her development as an artist, both in honing her natural comedic rhythm and in informing her perspective as an emerging Latina artist.
Annie’s career spans both the stage and the screen. She recently appeared in LMN’s I Love You…But I Lied under the direction of Emmy-nominee Michael Selditch and has also previously performed on The Late Show with David Letterman. She has remained true to her classical training: performing as Hero in Much Ado About Nothing at the Tony-winning Shakespeare Theatre Company in DC (alongside Kathryn Meisle, Derek Smith, and Tony Plana) and as Bianca in Othello with New York’s Kinetic Theatre Ensemble. She has also participated in the development of new plays and musicals at CAP 21, Baryshnikov Arts Center, Playwrights Realm, and The Lark. Annie is a veteran on-camera and voice-over commercial performer, appearing in multiple national and regional ads in both English and Spanish, working with clients such as Macy’s, Palmolive, McDonalds, Liberty Mutual, Subway, and Garnier.
Annie is currently based out of New York City and is a proud member of Actor’s Equity Association and SAG-AFTRA. She likes naps and chocolate.
