Photos with Lorrie Bacon
Lorrie was born in Holyoke, MA on April 2, 1974. When she was 2 years old, her parents moved to Santa Maria, CA where she grew up. Ever since she could remember, she wanted to be an actress. At the age of 9 she had the chance to audition for her first play, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". She was cast as a towns-person. Even though this was her first show and a small role, she loved every minute of it! This gave her the acting bug and she never turned back.

Little did Lorrie know that her dreams of being an actress would also be fulfilled. Being in a strange town and not knowing anyone, she needed to find a place to fit in. So, the obvious choice was to sign up for a theatre class and join the Drama Club. She began auditioning and getting cast in musicals such as "Hello, Dolly" and comedies (A Bad Year for Tomatoes) and then her first serious drama, "The Grapes of Wrath" as Rose of Sharon. After she graduated from Eureka High School in 1992, she began performing in area community theaters. She continued doing as much theatre as she possibly could. Building a great theatre resume. She ventured away from musical theatre and began auditioning for comedies (her favorite genre), dramas and thrillers. In 1996 she joined an improv group called RATS (Redwood Area Theatre Sports). She also worked in a local theatre company that solely performed new work plays, called World Premier Theatre/Plays in Progress. That's where Lorrie learned the most about her craft and herself. She became even more of a dedicated and serious actress. She had more passion for acting than ever before. Presently, Lorrie resides on the east coast in a western Massachusetts town called East Longmeadow. She moved to Massachusetts after her grandfather convinced her that she'd love it there. That was in 1997 and at that time she told him she did not want to leave California because she didn't want to move so far away from home. However, she did agree to go for a visit. She'd stay for 2 weeks. After a week of visiting, she decided to stay and never went back. She continued her theatre streak on the east coast, landing a part in a play even before she found herself a day job. Lorrie added her first feature film to her resume in 2006(Cathedral Pines). She's also added short films such as "Crushing Pennies" and "The Women of Harry". A second feature film was added in 2013 called "Lucid" and also two web series, "Worlds Worst Director" and "Family Problems". She's added a couple of local commercials as well. Some of Lorrie's favorite roles include, Belgravia in "Man Alive", Anelle in "Steel Magnolias", Jane in "Out of Order", Jan in "Cahoots" and Mary in "How the Other Half Loves".
