“Kennedy nails the character of Betty. She plays her with the perfect balance of innocence and self reliance.” -Anything Horror
Hey there! I’m Rebekah, I’m originally from Texas, though I’ve never had an accent to deal with. I’m thankful for that as I now live in Los Angeles. I enjoy mountains of books, hot chocolate, and anything that involves nature.
I grew up doing theatre, which I started at age 12, but it wasn’t until I graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University that I discovered my love for the screen, and my need to play dark complex roles. After giving theatre a break, I was over the moon when I booked 15 year old Hanna in the feature “House Hunting” with Marc Singer and Art LaFleur. I then went on to play 14 year old Caroline in “Creature” starring Mehcad Brooks and Serinda Swan. Then came another amazing opportunity when I got to work opposite Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman in “Season of the Witch.”
In 2011, I made my television debut playing a pregnant teenager who couldn’t take care of her baby in “Memphis Beat” on TNT. Then in 2016, I guest starred in “Criminal Minds” on CBS playing a young woman who had been held hostage for 10 years. And I was most recently seen as the lead guest star Esther Labott, a young woman who was neglected by her family, in The Book of Esther in “Law & Order SVU” on NBC.
I can also be seen as one of the lead roles in the horror film “Bastard” with After Dark Films and Fox Home Entertainment which opened in theaters October 2015, “Let Me Make You A Martyr” with Mark Boone Junior and Marilyn Manson, “Street Level” with Sons of Anarchy’s David Labrava and Mark Boone Junior and Netflix’s “To The Bone” with Lily Collins and Keanu Reeves. I most recently wrapped “Limbo” with James Purefoy and “A Dark Foe” with Selma Blair and Graham Greene.
When I’m not working, you can find me in class studying with the Berg Studios, reading, or exploring a new city. I have made my career playing the strange, unique, and unusual and it’s been a joy.
