About Panda

Jennifer "Panda" MacLean recently won a “Best Guilty Pleasure” Award at the New York City International Film Festival during October's Fright Fest, and a Best Supporting Actress Award for a 17 minute monologue in “All the King’s Women” for Workshop Theatre. She also received a Best Actress nomination by Canadian Playwright Sharon Pollock at the Calgary One Act Play Festival. She has performed the Vagina Monologues twice but her parents only came the first time (wait… that was a poor choice of words.) She knew she made it "big" when a door girl and bouncer said to her, "HEY you're that chick in that thing! You were fantastic!" but still had to pay to get into the bar anyways. She likes robots. And turtles. And killer mutant robot turtles. And Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger II Tanks. And killer mutant robot turtles driving Panzerkampfwagen VI TIger II Tanks. And fluffy bunnies.
