Whether lighting up the big screen, or calling the shots behind the scene, actor, director, and producer Brianne Davis is one of the most electric talents to storm Hollywood by force. Starring in one of the most highly anticipated new dramas with History Channel’s military series; “SIX,” is an ambitious drama that follows Navy SEAL Team Six, the best of the best whose mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working as a jihadist fighter with the terrorists. Brianne jumps off the screen as ‘Lena,’ a teacher and wife of lead SEAL Team Six commander ‘Joe Graves’ (Sloane). As the pillar of her family and heart of the series, ‘Lena’ leads her family with strength and dignity as her husband leaves for weeks at a time to complete the world’s most dangerous military operations, while she is never quite sure if he will return to her alive.
Brianne was first discovered at the young age of 12 by an agency that hooked her up with modeling jobs and soon after began booking commercial work. Her first taste of acting was after she booked a small speaking role in the widely successful movie REMEMBER THE TITANS starring an all-star cast that included Denzel Washington, Will Patton, Hayden Panettiere, Ryan Gosling and Kate Bosworth, just to name a few. From there, Brianne went on to star in hit television show, CW’s “Dawson’s Creek,” and once graduating from high school, she made the decision to move to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career. Once in LA, Brianne began booking roles in many hit shows including FX’s “Nip/Tuck,” CBS’ “CSI: Miami,” ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” and HBO’s “True Blood.”
Davis has also proved her talent as a big screen actress. Her first lead role came in 2005 with the blockbuster hit JARHEAD, a drama centered on the life of U.S. marine sniper Anthony Swofford, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, during the Gulf War who struggles to cope with being away from home and fears that his girlfriend, played by Brianne, was cheating on him while he was away. She also starred in horror film PROM NIGHT alongside Brittany Snow, Kellan Lutz and Idris Elba, as the flicks somewhat comedic relief.
Not only is an actor, Brianne also an accomplished director and producer. Thriving behind the camera, as much as in front, she has produced five films with her production company Give & Take Productions, and has directed three features: The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story, Psychophonia and Transfer.
When not in front of the camera, or in the director’s chair, Brianne’s undeniable passion is in supporting our troops. She can often be found traveling the world on various USO tours and so far has visited 15 bases. While on tour she has stayed in such places as Iraq and Afghanistan. State side, Brianne champions on behalf of veteran programs, especially in getting the necessary post traumatic stress relief that many soldiers desperately need. This is absolutely something she holds near and dear to her heart. Brianne also helps support the homeless, animal shelters, and volunteering around Los Angeles.
