Lucinda Carr is always smiling. That’s what people say about her. She usually plays a lovable wife, grandma, or other caregiver types. When she played 89-year-old Rose Marie McCoy in the musical, “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine,” her production received 9th place honors in the Strawberry One-Act Festival. She has appeared in numerous commercials with her favorite being Scary Mommy: What happens at Grandma’s stays at Grandma’s.
She has studied on-camera technique with Shon Middlebrooks, John Pallotta, Roz Williams, Natalie Roy, Christine Horn; commercial and scene study and audition workshops at Actors Connection, One on One Studios, and The Network; Improv with UCB and Sketch Comedy with the PIT; Voice Over with Maggie Phillips; training for the theater with the Harlem Theatre Company and the Negro Ensemble Company.
At times, Lucinda has as many as 5 commercials running at the same time. She laughs about her role as aging superhero Lady Marvelous in the short film “Zero Issue.” That was so much fun. She also enjoyed working with Century Tree doing hosting work as well as self-taped projects.
Born in Georgetown, South Carolina, Lucinda now resides in Mamaroneck, New York. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Math from Fisk University and had a long corporate career working with computers before quitting to pursue acting. Over the years, she wrote a book entitled, “30 Days to Life - poetic expressions and musings” and started a consulting business helping people to publish their books and complete other computer-related projects. Lucinda sings soprano in her church choir and is an avid Sudoku puzzle solver.
Her favorite saying is, “Take what you got and make what you want.”
