GKM Honored To Be Repping Twice EMMY AWARD nominee, JENNIFER BASSEY.

We are thrilled to announce that GKM has the honor to now be representing Twice Emmy Award-nominated JENNIFER BASSEY! Jennifer is a veteran of Broadway, Film, and Television, including a 28 year Contract role on ABC TV’s “ALL MY CHILDREN.” Recently Guest Starred on “Grey’s Anatomy.”  So much more.

Jennifer was born in Chicago. Her first job in entertainment was as a singing Playboy bunny in the very first Playboy Club. She left her bunny ears behind and was accepted into the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, where she got the lowest entrance marks in the history of the academy. Three years later, she graduated from the RADA with honors, finishing just below classmate and future Academy Award-winner, Sir Anthony Hopkins. Jennifer went on to the Big Apple, where she appeared in several Broadway and off-Broadway productions. Some of which included Neil Simon’s “California Suite,” “Not Now Darling,” directed by George Abbot, “In Praise of Love” with Rex Harrison and “The Homecoming” (The Original Royal Shakespeare Production).

Her most recent off-Broadway credits include Molier’s “Tartuffe” and Wendy Wasserstein’s “Isn’t It Romantic,” both staged at the Tribeca Playhouse. Prior off-Broadway appearances included playing “Katherine” in “The Taming of the Shrew” at the Roundabout Theatre, “Lady Macbeth” in “Macbeth” at the Stratford Theatre and “Love Letters,” in which she co-starred with Ken Kercheval.

In 1983, Miss Bassey won the role of “Marian Colby” on “All My Children,” initially signing for a five-month stint. Due to the incredible popularity of her character, she became a Contract Player and spent 28 years on the stalwart daytime drama.

 
Beyond her other dramatic successes, she has enjoyed a flourishing film career that includes such feature films as “Waxwork, “Twogether, which also featured both the performing and directing talents of Nick Cassavetes, and “Dunston Checks In” where in a scene-stealing, skin-revealing moment, she received an orgasmic massage from an orangutan! Jennifer has achieved prime-time success, most recently as a Guest Star on “Law & Order,” “30 Rock,” Grey’s Academy,” and a recent arc in a return to Daytime in “General Hospital,” among many other Prime Time shows.

In addition to her Two Emmy nominations (including one this year), she also received two Soap Opera Digest Awards, the second of which was shared with her co-star, David Canary, for Favorite Couple. 

 
In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys outdoor activities and is an aspiring writer, whose latest effort is a new night-time series called “Nightfall,” which is currently under consideration for production by HBO.
 
Her range is astounding as you can see reflected in the breadth of her roles, from dramatic doyenne to comedy.
