Actress, Zenith Ander Talks About Her Life In The Entertainment Industry

Updated: Dec 28, 2020

Zenith Ander started her acting career as a teenager. Casted in a multitude of Children’s Theatre shows from her very first audition. In 1999, she was casted as the lead, 'Straw', in a 2-week run of 'The Three Little Pigs Y2K'.

“Right after this, I worked as a character performer for the iconic Australian theater company, Cartoon Creations. They created Fat Cat and Humphrey B. Beard. I guess the American equivalent would be the Teletubbies - big, fluffy suited characters!” Zenith shared with FAME.

“My first theatrical agent, Janine J Cowie then poached me when I was studying at the William Bates Academy of Performing Arts in Melbourne, Australia. I studied under William Bates himself for 3 years.”

She describes Bates as an “eccentric teacher” who was “integral in exposing her to many aspects of performing”.

“My agent got me an audition for what ended up being my debut network television role on the multi-award winning ‘Blue Heelers’, on Channel 7 in Australia, which casted other guest stars who came to Hollywood, such as Luke Hemsworth (Thor / Westworld), Hugh Jackman (X-Men/Wolverine), Angus Sampson (Fargo) and Sam Worthington (Avatar).

For Zenith, it is the creativity and expansive nature of storytelling that draws her to the Entertainment Industry.
