Catching up with Theodora Woolley at the airport isn’t the worst thing that could happen. I’ve interviewed actors in other places that weren’t half as nice. At least I got to spend a bit of quality time with her while she waited for her plane. Theodora has one of the most genuine smiles I’ve seen in a long, long time, and she made me feel at home, even though we were talking in a busy airline terminal.
My first impression of this beautiful English woman is that she is in control of herself and her career. Her poise and elegance indicate a strong sense of self, along with a great amount of fearlessness and tenacity. All of those attributes, of course, are necessary in her field of acting, which is arguably one of the most competitive industries in the world. To be able to achieve the goals Theodora set for herself and rise to such a high level of artistic competence, she would simply have to be determined to say the very least.
And determination (and talent) is what brought her here from England to study at the prestigious Stella Adler Studio of Acting. Of course, one can’t just sign up at a conservatory like that one and demand a place in the class. You have to actually audition and be invited to participate, just the way Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Bryce Dallas Howard and many others did. Apparently, Theodora’s skill and professionalism was recognized immediately by those very astute judges and she spent three years giving her all to the school.
Working hard has paid off for this lovely and highly intelligent actress who has acted in plays from Shakespeare to The Heidi Chronicles and in movies like Good Bones and Landing Up. Theodora has also worked on innumerable television projects such as the popular and long running show Blue Bloods, along with recurring roles in Eye Candy and Person of Interest, among too many others to add to this page.
Theodora Woolley is one of those rare people who you never forget. Is it her alluring eyes or her stunning overall feminine appeal? Or perhaps, it’s just the way she carries herself. She can be playful one minute and serious the next, but she consistently tells you with all her being that she is a real person, a genuine human being with more talent than one woman could conceivably ever have. However, there it is…and here comes her plane.
