Judy O'Dea Judy O'Dea is an acting veteran of over 40 years on stage, screen, radio, and TV.  Horror film aficionados remember her as Barbara in George A. Romero's 1968 horror classic, Night of the Living Dead
Judy began her exciting and varied entertainment career in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania when she was just 15 years old.  Musicals were her thing back then, but as time went by, she moved into more dramatic and comedic roles that took her from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles, California.  Some of her favorite shows include South Pacific, Babes in Arms, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music, The Great Sebastians, Mary, Mary, The Odd Couple, Top Girls, Breath of Spring, and oh, so many more!

Today, Judy has been doing more independent film work than ever before.  Thrillers such as October Moon, November Son, and soon-to-be released Women's Studies are keeping her in the public eye.  And now, if all goes as planned, she'll be heading to Texas in July 2010 to film the remake of the 1973 classic, Don't Look in the Basement.

In addition to her acting career, Judy has been extremely fortunate to have enjoyed a second fulfilling career in business communications.  Using her experience on stage and in film, Judy began helping clients fine-tune their oral presentation skills.  She has spent over 25 years in this training and consulting field, building her own very successful company, O'Dea Communications. Among some of her notable clients are Hughes Aircraft Company, Raytheon Company, DirecTV, Spacelabs Medical, Inc., Datex-Ohmeda, and L-3 Communications Integrated Systems.
