Breeda Wool joins GLOW season 3 for a recurring role
According to Deadline, UnReal alum Breeda Wool has signed on for a recurring role in the third season of Netflix‘s GLOW. Wool is best known for her role in the crime drama series Mr. Mercedes, based on Stephen King’s novel.
Wool is set to play the character of Denise, a former Showgirl who now lives in Vegas as a full-time Dance Captain of the Rhapsody at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino. She will do everything in her power to further her career on the stage while trying her best to provide her young daughter’s needs.
Inspired by the short-lived, but beloved show from the ’80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin) a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.
Alison Brie (Community, Sleeping With Other People) stars, along with Betty Gilpin (Nurse Jackie, True Story) and Marc Maron (Almost Famous, Marc Maron: Thinky Pain). GLOW is created by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie, Orange Is The New Black, Weeds). Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann executive producers alongside Flahive and Mensch who are serving as showrunners.
Recently, the series has earned six Emmy nominations including outstanding comedy series. GLOW Season 2 is currently available for streaming at Netflix.
