Susan Gallagher

Biography

Susan Lea Gallagher is an American actress and producer who was born the youngest of four children in Charlotte, NC, to Jazz Musician June Craton. But it was her father, Buddy Gallagher, who always dreamed of being an actor. Instead, Buddy helped to grow the family business, Good Will Publishers, in Gastonia, NC, where Susan grew up. She began her studies at the Acting Studio as well as with numerous well-known teachers. After raising her family, she now spends a lot of her time in NYC studying with retired Broadway Star/Director/Teacher Zina Jasper. Susan's work takes her all over the US, but most notably NYC for her series regular role of Val, a bisexual Mom coming out to her lesbian daughter in Queering. Other recurring roles are Safe Harbor, Treme, and The Inbetweeners, but her favorite role is that of Lynn, the Homeless woman, in the Karate Kid's new hit series Cobra Kai. Some other notable credits include Strange Weather opposite Holly Hunter, Bloodline opposite Kyle Chandler, and Susan just wrapped on Lifetime's The Christmas Contract opposite Hilarie Burton and Cheryl Ladd, due out in 2018. Susan loves indie films. She just wrapped several including Danny Madden's (Thunder Road), "Beast Beast" produced by Alec Baldwin. Her lead roles have included Picking Back Up where she portrays an alcoholic/addict and received a Best Actress Nomination from WIFF in Los Angeles. Other lead roles out soon are The Door Step and Windblown, both female driven. Her most challenging role is now in production. Susan plays a woman with the early onset of Alzheimers in I'll Be Here For Awhile, which wraps late 2018 in NYC. As a Producer and forming Her Little Red Productions, Llc, in 2014, she has written and/or produced several award winning short films. Susan is excited about her most recent producing project, Portrait of a Woman at Dawn, written and directed by the talented Cullen Douglas, which premieres late October 2018 in Los Angeles.
