Despite Glennellen's real-life kind-natured soul, she often plays edgier, sometimes mean girl roles onscreen. Casting directors are beginning to acclaim her as "this generation's new Rachel McAdams," with, "the scene-stealing skills of an iconic supporting actress, just seconds away from landing her leading lady status."
In 2016, Glennellen moved to sunny Los Angeles in pursuit of her music career, as well as acting and modeling. She is best known for her recurring role of Nicole on the hit Netflix series, STRANGER THINGS, as well as her guest star appearance as high school lacrosse baddie Brooke on AwesomenessTV's go90 series, VERSUS, starring Brandon Larracuente (13 Reasons Why), Camille Hyde (American Vandal) and Maddie McCormick (Shameless). The red-headed scene stealer landed a role on NBC's TIMELESS, guest starring as a young 1919 suffragette named Jane in the second season’s most popular episode, “Mrs. Sherlock Holmes.”
Glennellen can be seen as the leading role of the beloved role of Mary Lennox, in the new Steampunk adaptation of the iconic classic tale, THE SECRET GARDEN, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The film won several awards at FilmQuest, including best ensemble cast and best wardrobe. In summer 2018, Anderson starred alongside Annie LeBlanc and Addison Reicke in BRAT’s original YouTube series, A GIRL NAMED JO, as cheerleader and glee club leader Linda. She sang in the season one finale, marking her first onscreen booking that merged with her music career. She was also asked to make a guest star appearance in the upcoming FOX pilot, THIN ICE.
She is currently set to appear in the upcoming HULU television series, LESS THAN ZERO. Based on the hit 80’s film starring Robert Downy Jr., James Spader and Andrew McCarthy, Anderson is set to play the role of Mare, an 80s Roxy girl with style and a sneaky agenda. The pilot is set for a late 2018 or early 2019 release.
After less than a year auditioning in LA, Glennellen also booked three national commercials for Disney, Kotex, Dairy Management INC., and Select-Quote Insurance. She has become dearly loved by top casting directors, directors and producers along both the east coast and west coast, as well as producers and other artists in the music industry.
