Brianna Brown – Actress/Philanthropist
A life less ordinary, on screen and off. Actress Brianna Brown made her first on-screen appearance in 1999 in the pilot episode of NBC’s cult teen comedy Freaks and Geeks from mastermind Judd Apatow and has since graced the silver and small screen in a variety of roles that have earned her recognition and praise as a bright young star. With a list of credits too long to mention here, Brianna is not only an accomplished actress, but a passionate philanthropist.
In 2006 she founded non-profit The New Hollywood, a women’s goal group. In addition to providing support in achieving personal and professional goals, the organization donates upwards of $10,000 to various charities and produces charity events. In 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Brianna was nominated by Los Angeles Business Journal feature “Women Making a Difference” for her work with the organization.
In this Legacy Series episode, Lisa Haisha learns about Brianna’s challenging childhood, her exodus to Los Angeles where she was quickly well-received, and her passionate efforts to create a Hollywood free from the exploitation and subjugation of women, both on and off the screen.
