Anne soon realized that her acting talent would be suited for television and film and was cast as the lead in the British comedy-drama “The Book Group”. The series centered on the life of American Clare Pettengill (Anne Dudek), who, at the start of the series, had recently arrived in Glasgow, Scotland. She starts up a book club to try to find friends with similar interests but met people who had other interest from what she was searching for. The show aired on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom and received positive reviews.

Hollywood could feel like a battleground and here’s what Anne had to say “In a way, I don’t want to know what’s being said in casting offices, because it can get pretty brutal, and I don’t want to have to think about the reasons why I don’t get one job or do get one job. I can say, ‘Oh, my height,’ and that’ll make me feel better, but I don’t know for sure.”


Mixing relationship or marriage with career sometimes don’t go well for many in the show business. Anne has had her own share of marital tale as her union with painter Matthew Heller ended in divorce in 2016. She never disclosed the reason for her divorce, not that she owes that to anyone anyways.
