Tate Elizabeth Hanyok

Who: Tate Hanyok is a writer and moviemaker. She received a BFA from VCU School of the Arts, became a company member at the B Street Theatre, and has since appeared in dozens of television shows and films.  

How She Got Her Start: “Coming up in Hollywood as an actress, the only roles I read for were one-dimensional girlfriends, logical thinking wives, and exposition pushing receptionists. I felt phony, and always wished I could audition for the male roles that got to make the sharp points and land the jokes. So I started writing for myself. I wrote complex, layered characters that made me laugh and cringe and cry. Characters I hadn’t seen before. Characters I would be thrilled to play.”
