Adria Tennor is an actress, writer, producer, director and restaurateur. The grand daughter of Sam Tennor, a song plugger for Irving Berlin, Tennor made her film debut playing a twelve-year old boy in Hal Hartey’s Amateur which premiered in the Directors Fortnight at Cannes. She works regularly in television and film, and is most known for her recurring roles on AMC’s Mad Men as Betty Draper’s frank-talking friend Joyce Darling and the kooky Professor Clarissa Hawn on ABC Family’s late but great Greek. She also appears in Michel Hazanavicius’s Academy Award winning film, The Artist, released by The Weinstein Co. in which she plays John Goodman’s dutiful if not impish assistant. Tennor made her foray into producing with Doug Blake (The Sessions) on Smothered, a film by John Schneider, and then made her directorial debut, with Cracked, starring Talyan Wright & Marguerite Moreau. Her one-woman show, StripSearch, based on her studies in pole dancing with Sheila Kelley at her SFactor Studio also played to rave reviews in Los Angeles for over a year and a half and will soon be published as a memoir. Tennor also owns and operates three restaurants in Los Angeles with her husband, Claudio Blotta – barbrix – named one of LA’s top ten best new restaurants as well as Best Wine Bar by Los Angeles Magazine, – Cooks County – named Best New Restaurant of 2012 by Los Angeles Magazine, and the freshly opened All’Acqua – an Italian spot in Atwater Village. Adria's feature project, Never Been Born, is in pre-production and stars Dale Dickey, Thomas Sadoski and Annika Marks.
