TRILBY GLOVER is a director, actress and writer. Her directorial debut, Awkward Expressions of Love, had its world premiere as the opening night film of the highly regarded Palm Springs International ShortFest. She is currently developing her own feature film script and is set to shoot her follow up short film later this year.
A seasoned actor, Trilby is best known for her work in Emmy award-winning miniseries The Starter Wife (with Debra Messing) and feature Righteous Kill, in which she acted alongside Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. She was lucky enough to work with Al Pacino again in Sony Pictures’ 88 Minutes.
Trilby has worked on a number of feature films including upcoming horror Keepers (due to hit screens this October) and has just wrapped filming the lead role in the supernatural thriller Threshold (Lake Forest Entertainment). In other television projects, she has had recurring guest star roles in Starz’s Crash series and appeared on NBC’s The New Normal and ABC’s Mistresses. She also appeared in the royal love story Will and Kate (Lifetime) as Kate Middleton's hilariously snobby English nemesis.
Trilby is originally from Perth, Western Australia, and grew up in Hong Kong and Singapore. She studied and worked in journalism and has a Bachelor’s degree with a triple major in English, Philosophy and French. She graduated from the acclaimed NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art) in Sydney, Australia in 2003 and later went on to study at the prestigious Royal Academy of the Dramatic Arts (RADA) in London.
