Angela Janas grew up in Lino Lakes, Minnesota, just outside of the Twin Cities. Since graduating from the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater BFA Actor Training Program, she has worked regionally and Off Broadway, highlighted by leading roles at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, and The Acting Company. She's a proud member of Actors' Equity Association.
Despite having grown up in frigid, subzero winters, she has a warm, easy-going vibe that belies her ability to take on deep, rich characters battling enormous obstacles like Juliet, Ophelia, and Lady Macbeth. Angela has a soft spot for rescue dogs and all things Minnesota. She's married to actor Carl Howell, and they currently make Manhattan home.
