Elaine Hendrix stars as “Ava” – the one person on earth capable of putting up with Johnny Rock’s bullshit and somehow talking him out of his destructive, self-sabotaging behavior. She does this mostly by screaming, which is often preceded by a solid, dead-arm sucker punch and a heavy dose of sarcasm. Back in the day, they each had their own sexual escapades while sharing an “open” relationship. The truth is, Ava’s escapades outnumbered Johnny’s quite a bit, and Johnny doesn’t know the half of it. Ultimately, she’s got brains, balls and experience. While she continues to support Johnny no matter what, part of her wonders what would happen if she took a step into the spotlight. A step she was always afraid to take – until now.
With a resume that includes over 100 film, television and stage credits, Elaine Hendrix is best known for her dynamic roles in such films as Disney’s The Parent Trap, Superstar, the documentary sensation What the Bleep Do We Know? and the cult classic Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion. On the television side, Hendrix most recently had recurring roles on ABC’s hit series Mistresses and FX’s Anger Management as well as IFC’s Maron and Amazon’s Transparent. Hendrix’s greatest passion is the humane treatment of animals. She spends her time off screen traveling to rescue, lobby, educate, protest and build new habitats on their behalf. She is the founder of ThePetMatchmaker.com, a non-profit dedicated to celebrating and inspiring the rescue, foster and adoption of homeless animals everywhere. For her extensive work in this field, Hendrix received the Guardian Award at the National Animal Rights Conference, among numerous other awards and honors.
