Judith O'Dea

Judith O'Dea is an acting veteran of over 60 years on stage, screen, radio, and TV.  Horror film aficionados remember her as Barbra in George A. Romero's 1968 horror classic, Night of the Living Dead.

Judith began her entertainment career in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania when she was just 15 years old.  Musicals were her thing back then, but as time went by, she moved into more dramatic and comedic roles that took her from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles, California.  Some of her all-time favorites include South Pacific, My Fair Lady, and The Sound of Music, as well as The Great Sebastians, The Odd Couple, and Doubt: A Parable.

Today, Judith has been doing more independent film work than ever before.  Thrillers such as Abandoned Dead, November Son, and Women's Studies have kept her in the public eye.  And if all goes as planned, we'll soon be seeing Judith in Jason Collum's Safe Inside and Matt Cloude's Night of the Living Dead: Genesis.

In addition to her acting career, Judith has been extremely fortunate to have enjoyed a second fulfilling career in business communications.  Using her stage and in film experience, Judith began helping clients fine-tune their oral presentation skills.  She spent over 25 years in this training and consulting field, building her own very successful company, O'Dea Communications. Among some of her notable clients are Hughes Aircraft Company, Raytheon Company, DirecTV, Spacelabs Medical, Inc., Datex-Ohmeda, and L-3 Communications Integrated Systems.
