Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison 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.
Wool will play Denise, a former Showgirl, and current Dance Captain, of Rhapsody at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino. She lives in Vegas full time, desperate to stretch out her career on the stage and provide for her young daughter.
Wool currently stars as Lou Linklatter in Audience Network’s, Mr. Mercedes. She also recently co-starred in the indie feature, Mother’s Little Helpers, opposite writer/director, Kestrin Pantera. She’s repped by Bold Management & Production and Innovative Artists Agency.
