Rachel Hendrix

Rachel Hendrix is an American actress from Alabama. She attended The University of Montevallo in Alabama where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography. Before graduating college, Rachel was introduced to filmmaker Kris Kimlin (Summer Snow, Mom's Night Out) and was cast in his first short film, Letting Go, as a pitch for the highly competitive short-lived reality show On The Lot, produced by Steven Speilberg and Mark Burnett. Jon Erwin of The Erwin Brothers (The Cross and the Towers, The Mysterious Islands), a directing duo from Alabama and colleagues of Kimlin's saw the short film and began casting Hendrix in commercials and music videos throughout her studies to become a photographer. Since then, the screen beckoned. After graduating, Hendrix moved to Switzerland with her husband only to continue her acting career through a maintained relationship with Jon and Andy Erwin who in 2009 created a show, casting Hendrix as the lead, on Halogen Network's three episode pilot ALUMNI which aired in over five million homes. After months of development, Hendrix accepted a role written with her in mind to play, and garnered national acclaim for her inaugural debut in the 2011 award-wining film, October Baby.
