In Spite of Obstacles, Wendy Conrad Has Continued on Her Path as an Actress
Wendy Conrad is an American actress who originally began working in the industry in the 80’s, when she was doing hair and makeup on movie sets. She stepped back from the industry five years ago, but never gave up on her dreams, even when she became a colon cancer survivor. In fact, despite not being able to walk eight years ago, she still had hopes of acting.
“I went through two hip surgeries and went back to acting school and graduated. I landed one of my first speaking roles, Murder Made Me Famous, that aired on the Reelz Channel in 2018. Now, my IMDb Wendy Conrad page shows my body of work. I’m excited to say I am in an upcoming movie starring Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones. I’m a voice singer in the choir. I pray my success is an inspiration for people to never give up on their dreams and to always lead with love,” Wendy says.
