Today, I’m talking with Texan actress Kelly Jenrette.
Staring in the ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ and ‘Grandfathered’, she’s been in multiple hit shows and was nominated for an Emmy for her role in the ‘Handmaid’s Tale.’
Kelly tells me all about her career as an actress, how she got into performing, and what she does to prepare for each role. We talk acting, cooking, and how the virus has affected both our lives.
The virus has been tough for everyone but even in these times Kelly gets me giggling and we have a good laugh on the way…
