-- Actor Terrence Clowe steps back in time to highlight the early years of feminist icon Gloria Steinhem in the new biopic, THE GLORIAS, now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Directed by Julie Taymor, THE GLORIAS chronicles Steinem's itinerant childhood's influence on her life as a writer, activist and organizer for women's rights worldwide. Clowe emerges as a Barber and supportive father of a young black girl befriended by Steinem during her childhood years living in the south.
The film stars Academy Award winners Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander as Gloria at different stages of her life, as well as Bette Midler, Timothy Hutton, Lorraine Toussaint and Janelle Monáe.
Clowe was excited to join the talented cast and for the opportunity to portray a positive role model that helped shape the young Steinem. Clowe adds, "I have been a fan of Julie Taymor's work for some time. When I received the opportunity, I was floored! The joy and electricity you see in the scene were genuine and so appropriately set in the world of an African American barbershop, a place of community, family and culture. The relationship with my daughter in the film is apparent and I think adds dimension to the many ideals Ms. Steinem would later go on to advocate for. I have so much gratitude to be a part of the film that brilliantly honors Gloria Steinem whom I view as an extraordinary human being."
A Clinton, Maryland native, Clowe has built a solid resume and reputation on both screen and stage. Audiences will recognize him from his previous television appearances on Boardwalk Empire, The Knick, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, I Am Homicide, and Z the Beginning of Everything; as well as the feature films The Eyes with Nick Turturro and Vincent Pastore, and An Act of Terror with Olivia Washington and Tonya Pinkins. He has worked with some of the biggest directors in the business, including Rob Marshall, Chris Rock, Steven Soderbergh, Martin Scorsese, Ann Reinking and Walter Bobbie.
