Tanna Frederick Tries Out Life as a Dog

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

hollywoodnews.com: Red-tressed “Queen of the Lot” star Tanna Frederick made a New Year’s wish to get back on stage, she tells us – and, lo and behold, a last-minute opportunity presented itself to take on the lead role of the title dog in A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia,” opening tonight (1/14) at the Sierra Madre playhouse outside L.A..

“It’s a role I’ve been wanting to play for a long time. This play was originally written for Sarah Jessica Parker, who did it in New York. It’s the most charming story about a dog’s relationship to its owner. This husband brings a dog home, the wife doesn’t want the dog. and it really becomes this love triangle,” reports Tanna.

She’s prepared for the role by – what else? – hanging out with her dog, a Shiba Inu “that looks like a little wolf. She gets distracted easily. She can smell people from, like, a block away. She’s always hungry, always wants to be petted.”
