Cannes Film Festival 2016 Spotlight: Rising Starlet Hannah Barefoot


Behold the enticing actress/model/singer Hannah Barefoot who is primed to enrapture ardent hearts around the globe. Having emerged as one to watch at SXSW in 2014 in the drama “All The Wilderness”, she enchants once more as Amanda, the wife of an unstable cult leader in the sci-fi short film “Omniscient”. While he plans to mine his daughter’s telepathic ability in order to control humanity, Amanda puts everything on the line to stop his insane agenda. In 2016, she also pulled off a poignantly, emotional expanse as Marla Harrison, the distraught wife of a murder victim in the 2nd Season of “CSI: Cyber”. Additionally she’s nabbed a juicy role on “The Young and The Restless”. Showcasing her striking resonance as a dramatic performer, Hannah is undoubtably on the verge of prosperous accomplishments.

Here’s Hannah revealing more about her short “Omnicscient” and her must-watch upcoming projects:

I’m so excited to have ‘Omniscient’ premiering in Cannes this week, because I really believe in it as a story and in the people behind it. It’s a female directed, produced, and edited psychological thriller, with strong female protagonists. That’s not at all to discount the incredible contributions by the men on the project, including the writer, cinematographer, and actors, but I just think it’s a really exciting time to support and endorse women in film. So I’m doing just that!

I premiered last Friday as a recurring character on CBS’s ‘The Young and the Restless’. I play Fiona, a former model-turned cosmetics buyer who mires herself directly in the family drama. It’s great fun, and I’m loving the opportunity to play something of a villainess. Plus, it’s a treat to be on the Number 1 daytime drama and work with such pro’s, many of who have been on the show for thousands of episodes. It’s incredible.

I’m also working as a recurring character on a new Amazon Prime show, ‘Good Girls Revolt’. This show premieres online in October, and I am beyond excited about it. It’s a 1969 drama surrounding the women who research and write the articles at a weekly news magazine, and the men who get the credit for it. The Good Girls . . . Revolt! It’s sort of a ‘Mad Men’ meets ‘The Newsroom’.

And finally, I’m working on a feature that I’m not really allowed to talk about (unfortunately, because I’d love to). But I can say that I have a leading role in it and the story is deep, impactful, and hopefully very healing for a lot of people in our world.


From multi-platform entertainer to budding soap opera starlet, Hannah is making waves with infinite effervescence. Just like how she describes on her website, she does exude Movie Magic! Check out the HANNAH BAREFOOT OFFICIAL SITE for all the latest updates and a wealth of fascinating info.
