How old is Susannah Flood?

At the moment, there is no information about Susannah’s age. The talented actress has a penchant for staying very private despite her success. Susannah has refused to give out any details about her date of birth and subsequently, her age. This also makes it impossible to tell what the actress’s zodiac sign could be. To hazard a guess, Susannah’s age is most likely to lie within the range of 30 and 35 as of 2022.

Her age aside, there are other important details about the For The People actress that is, thankfully, available to the public. Susannah was born in the bubbly city of Manhattan, in New York City, USA. She was born to middle-class Caucasian parents in the States. Other than that, there is no more information on her family background—there is currently no information on her parents, who they are and what they do, or whether she has any siblings.

She had her high school education at Santa Monica High School. She also attended the University of California in Berkeley where she studied English and graduated top of her class, summa cum laude. After she was done with UC Berkeley, Susannah proceeded to Brown University, also called the Trinity Repertory Company Consortium, where she obtained her Master’s degree in Acting.

She then began to practice her acting career by performing in several stage productions, in both classical and new dramas. Susannah Flood went on to work in several regional theaters across the United States, including featuring in multiple Broadway plays. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the New York Theater Workshop are some of the companies and show that Susannah has worked with.

Susannah Flood began her career journey on stage

Susannah’s career is divided into two—her mainstream acting career and her Broadway career. On Broadway, Flood has played the character of Dunyasha in the stage drama, The Cherry Orchard which was a remake by the production company, The Roundabout. The show starred veteran actors Diane Lane, Joel Grey, and Harold Perrineau as part of its elite cast. Apart from Broadway, Susannah Flood has done some pretty outstanding works on stage including Plano by Will Arbery, first played at The Wild Project and subsequently at the Connelly Theater by Clubbed Thumb.

Susannah also appeared in two David Cromer-directed plays titled The Effect and Tribes which showed at The Barrow Street Theatre. She performed in Scenes From A Marriage, a play directed by Ivo Von Hove and premiered at yh3 New York Theatre Workshop. Susannah was also present at the US premiere of Love & Information, produced by Caryl Churchill. She featured in Anne Washburn’s Mr. Burns drama play that was shown at Playwrights Horizons. Not too long ago, Susannah acted in Bess Wohl’s play, Make Believe, which was directed by Michael Greif and won the New York Critics’ Pick.

She made her screen debut in 2015

Away from stage productions, Susannah has also done brilliant television work. She landed a role as the main character Kate Littlejohn on the Shonda Rhimes-produced ABC television legal drama show For The People. This marked her big break on television in Hollywood in 2018. Her debut on-screen role can be seen on Chicago Fire where she played the role of Athena in 2015. On the NBC show, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, the actress played a minor role as a game designer who was being harassed by online stalkers. She made the appearance in 2015.

For now, Susannah Flood’s television filmography is still very limited. However, her best and most popular character to date remains Kate Littlejohn, a young, ambitious, yet green prosecutor working for the New York Federal Court. This character pushed Flood into Hollywood stardom and separated her from the horde of other Broadway actors who never made it to the big screen.

Susannah Flood also has experience with voiceover work as well. The actress provided conceiver services in the drama podcast episode The Orbiting Human Circus of the Air in 2016. This episode was part of the series, Night Vale Presents, composed mainly of radio and podcast productions.
