Beyond The Mat: How ‘GLOW’ Stars Look When The Cameras Are Off

Published

on

Since debuting on Netflix, GLOW has become a smash hit for the streaming service. Aside from positive reviews from TV critics, the show earned critical acclaim from WWE Hall of Famers Kurt Angle and GLOW alumni Lisa Moretti. The show involves some elaborate makeup and costuming, but let’s take a look at how some of your favorite GLOW actors look outside of the ring.

Sydelle Noel

Sydelle Noel, who plays Cherry Bang, believes the show is a strong display of womanhood. “We’re showing empowerment, we’re showing a friendship. [‘Glow’] is basically you’re losing yourself and you’re finding yourself at the same time,” she told IBT Times. The Florida native was recently a part of the global hit film Black Panther.

Britt Baron

Britt Baron’s character Justine “Scab” Biagi got the main cast bump in the second season. When it came to getting in shape, the gym was her second home. “If you weren’t in a scene, or if you weren’t shooting that day, you just would have to go to the gym and do training,” she told MTV. Aside from GLOW, many video game fans recognize her voice from Dishonored 2 and Halo 5: Guardians.

Alison Brie

Actress Alison Brie almost didn’t land the part of Ruth “Zoya the Destroya” Wilder. She continuously auditioned for the part, but she kept getting rejected. “I cried in my car after every audition,” she told Indiewire. Fortunately, the Community star managed to land the role in her fourth audition.

Kia Stevens

Kia Stevens, who plays Tammé Dawson, knows a thing or two about being in the ring. Known to wrestling fans as Awesome Kong, Stevens wrestled for promotions such as TNA and the WWE. Her wrestling experience helped the producers give the show an authentic feel. “I feel that they’ve heard me, and that they’ve incorporated parts of my story throughout GLOW, whether it’s through Tammé or someone else’s character,” she told The Ringer.

Betty Gilpin

Betty Gilpin, who plays Debbie “Liberty Belle” Eagan, had some close calls with filming her wrestling scenes. “There are many moves when you’re flipping over and you’re not quite sure how far from the floor you are, and those first couple moves, you’re like, ‘Is my neck about to break?’” she told the Huffington Post.
