Fans of the post-apocalyptic horror television show The Walking Dead are no strangers to the genius of Pollyanna McIntosh who joined the show in its seventh season and stole the hearts of fans. Her rise in the movie industry began at an early age with her appearances in a few movies and television shows. She is not only a live-action actress but has lent her voice acting talents to the characters of certain video games. We take you through the career and life of the talented Scottish actress.
In a town close to the Loch Lomond in Scotland Pollyanna McIntosh was born on the 15th of March in 1979. As a child, Pollyanna was fascinated by life; her interest in horror movies and television shows just like The Walking Dead began when she was six, where she watched as many as she possibly could.
She started taking acting classes at the age of 9 and thankfully those formative years did well to groom her into the actress she is today. For her high school education, the actress went to St. George’s School for Girls and went ahead to study Drama and Theatre Studies in college.
Her career as an actress began in her teenage years at the age of 16 when she had roles in some independently produced films and plays, during that time, she also worked as a director, but she wanted a much bigger step in her career and in 2004 she decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a full-time career in acting.
Her first major job after her move was the production of a play, The Woolgatherer. She subsequently appeared in more movies while her job as a director and producer dwindled. Pollyanna McIntosh has spoken on the pressures that the movie industry can place on an actress all at once where you are constantly reminded of the need to be at the top of your game.
Her first major role in a movie was in the 2005 movie, Headspace while her performance in the 2009 psychological thriller Exam earned her two award nominations. Pollyanna McIntosh has also received recognition for her acting in the 2011 film, The Woman. Some other movies and television shows she has had performances include Land of the Lost, Bleu Dream, Tale of Halloween, Bob Servant Independent, Hap and Leonard, and Talking Dead.
Pollyanna McIntosh has been a model in the past, a fact that is not known by a lot of people. As a teenager, she suffered from obesity as well as anorexia. She used to be a plus-sized model and was a victim of bullying because of the issues she had with her weight.
Family Life – Parents, Husband
Pollyanna McIntosh was raised by two amazing parents. There is a mix-up of information online that her parents are David McIntosh and Judith McIntosh. This isn’t only untrue but impossible as David McIntosh, a former housemate of Celebrity Big Brother 14 is six years younger than Pollyanna which means information about her actual parents is scarcely available.
McIntosh’s father worked as an international trader. He spent a lot of his time in South America countries, Portugal and Edinburg. He took his family with him, which included Pollyanna, her three sisters and their mum on these trips that usually turned into long stays. Her parents were hugely supportive of her early interest in acting as it was her mom who signed her up for acting classes when she was just 9 years old.
Pollyanna McIntosh was previously married to Grant Show, an actor who is known for his performance on the show Melrose Place. The couple got married in 2004 after meeting in 2003 when they both posed for the plus-sized clothing for the women fashion line, Lane Bryant. The marriage lasted for seven years before the couple split up in 2011. Their union produced no children. According to Pollyanna McIntosh, getting married and going through a divorce teaches you things about life – in a different way.
The exact net worth of a lot of people is not certain and Pollyanna McIntosh is no different. Although the actress has had a career where she has performed in a few blockbusters her net worth is estimated to hover around $1 million, however, chances are that she could become more bankable in the near future.
