An Actress Prepares: Tiffany Hobbs Talks About a Day On Set

It's Wednesday, which means its time for another installment of “An Actress Prepares” with Tiffany Denise Hobbs. Today, Tiffany walks us through a day on set. And while she can’t actually film on set (that’s a no-no), she invites us to share the in-between moments. Tiffany’s series offers mentorship for early career theatre artists as well as valuable insight for anyone wanting to know more about what it means to be a working actor.

In today’s video, you can follow me during a day on set as a co-star. I’ll share with you how I prepare and my journeys and thoughts throughout the day. Feel free to share your thoughts or questions in the comments section below, too!

Tiffany Hobbs was born and raised in Augusta, GA. Tiffany began dancing at the age of three. In the years following, she discovered a love for theater and music that augmented her passion to be a performing artist. She has trained for over two decades at prestigious liberal and performing arts institutions (UGA, SMU, Yale) and loves every minute of imitating life onstage, on set or in a rehearsal room. A former member of the Brierley Resident Acting Company at the Dallas Theater Center and featured actress at Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre, some of her favorite roles include Juanita in James Baldwin's Blues for Mister Charlie, Beatrice in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and Tonya in August Wilson's King Hedley II.

Tiffany appeared as Shenzi in the National Tour of The Lion King for two years (2015-2017). On TV, she can be found co-starring in Donald Glover's FX hit, "Atlanta"; Netflix's "Ozark" and "The Haunting of Hill House"; the OWN Network's "Love Is ___"; CBS's "MacGyver," "Bull" and "Code Black"; and in SyFy's "Happy." In 2018, Tiffany joined the Broadway musical, Waitress, spear-headed by Sara Bareilles, Jessie Nelson and Diane Paulus. Tiffany just finished a run as Olivia in Twelfth Night at Yale Repertory Theatre and is about to open Much Ado About Nothing with Shakespeare in the Park at the Delacorte Theatre.
