After a career at ESPN and beyond, Betty Gilpin makes a return to the stage in the newly-minted role of director of creative development at Arena Stage in Washington, DC. We caught up with Gilpin to discuss the impact of Arena Stage on her career and how her new position is shaping her life on and off the stage.

GLOW

Gilpin had supporting roles in such films as Ghost Town (2008), Take Care (2014), True Story (2015), and Future '38 (2017), but her breakthrough came with her starring role as Debbie "Liberty Belle" Eagan in the Netflix comedy series GLOW (2017–2019), which was inspired by the 1980s female professional wrestling league of the same name. She received significant critical acclaim and numerous award nominations for her performance, including two Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and three Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Between 2019 and 2020, Gilpin appeared in the fantasy romantic comedy film Isn't It Romantic, the comedy-drama film A Dog's Journey, the action comedy film Stuber, and the action horror film The Hunt. In 2021, she appeared in the science fiction action movie, The Tomorrow War. In same year, Gilpin is set to star in the upcoming HBO series Blood Sugar. (Source: en.wikipedia.org

Back in September 2019, Gilpin readied for the release of Craig Zobel’s “The Hunt.” It marked her first big-screen leading role, but outcry from no less than then-President Donald Trump led to the film’s cancellation. The film was eventually released in theaters in March 2020 — days before the country (and its movie theaters) began to shut down. Then Netflix canceled her beloved series “GLOW” before it could finish a planned fourth season. In January 2021, Amazon picked up Gilpin’s other planned blockbuster film, Chris McKay’s $200 million Paramount feature “The Tomorrow War,” opting to release it direct to streaming and forego a long-planned July 2021 theatrical release.

Gilpin seems happiest in the “ensemble-based thing,” including “GLOW,” which brought her three Emmy nominations. Last October, the streamer pulled the plug on a planned fourth season, owing to how “especially challenging” it would be to shoot “a physically intimate show with [a] large ensemble cast” under COVID safety guidelines. Gilpin, like her castmates and the show’s fanbase, was heartbroken by the cancellation, but she won’t give up hope for more. (Source: www.indiewire.com Gilpin’s career might look different had “The Tomorrow War” or “The Hunt” come out as planned, or if “GLOW” got its promised final season — but all of that would demand no pandemic, no political hysterics, no truncated theatrical releases, no streaming homes. Gilpin regards all of it with a measured sense of perspective. (Source:www.indiewire.com))
