ROLE CALL

ANNALEE JEFFERIES

Profession: Actor and farmer

Hometown: Born in Houston, raised on a ranch in the Houston area

Current home: An 1870s farmhouse located between Austin and Houston

KNOWN FOR: A company member at the Alley Theatre for 20-plus years, appearing in everything from A Streetcar Named Desire to Angels in America, she recently returned for the Alley’s 2019 staging of The Humans. Other projects include a 10-hour Tantalus, Horton Foote’s Orphans’ Home Cycle, and the TV series Queen Sugar.

WHAT’S NEXT: For now, she is taking time to run a farm, though she never knows when “the next phone call will come” for a role that she “couldn’t not do.”

When Brandon Weinbrenner joined the Alley seven years ago as associate producer and casting director, everywhere he turned was “a photo of Annalee in an Alley production or a quick aside about how fabulous ‘that Annalee’ is or a mention, in which she not only provided a “tour-de-force performance,” but was also a joy to work with. “Annalee is a star, and the kind of star that doesn’t need us to tell her that,” Weinbrenner says. “She is happy being who she is, contributing to the team without seeking attention. I adore her in every way.”
