Began her film career at the age of 15 selling popcorn at a local movie theatre in Newport, R.I. She later traveled throughout the U.S. working as a stage actress in regional theatres. Anna is also known as a playwright, director, screenwriter, and award winning documentary filmmaker of THE PIONEERS and THE PROMISE OF TOMORROW. These two documentary features, narrated by Olympia Dukakis, highlight Greek American history from 1900- 1960. As an Arts-in-Education advocate, Anna taught acting and playwrighting throughout LA County. Most recently she completed SPY, a screenplay based on a former OSS operative's life story during WWII and the occupation in Greece. "The role of Maria in Sun Don't Shine For Us, was profound and inspiring. This is not a typical Greek household in America. The cross this woman bears is much too heavy for anyone with less character and sheer will, but she never gives up." Anna resides in Los Angeles with her composer/ husband Bob Luna.
