“Working with Glenn was an absolute privilege. He pulled out the unspoken pain of the character and portrayed it in a dimensional I could only dream of. Very professional and great actor.”
– Arkee Linden, Director, “Shaking Cup”
“What a great experience it was to be on set last week for the shooting of “Shaking Cup” – a film written and directed the brilliant Arkee Linden, produced by the wonderful Ina Rose Farestad, and for which I am composing a score. I have never had to get my hands quite as literally “dirty’ for the sake of art – and how great it was! (actually, it’s makeup!). I had the honor to work with the fantastic and expressive actor, Glenn Ratcliffe, both as the “stunt double” for his hands (while playing the piano), and in coaching him to look like he is singing the aria Vesti la giubba from I Pagliacci, which he did absolutely brilliantly.
– “Tomasz Golka, Composer, “Shaking Cup”
Glenn was an absolute pleasure to work with. He brought an authentic dynamic to the character and was very gracious with everyone on set. I would jump at the opportunity to work with him again and will be keeping an eye out for his future work as a fan.
– Mark Robinson, Director. “Haunts.”
“I had the chance to work with Glenn on a scene from Arthur Miller’s All My Sons and I was quite impressed with the level of not only preparation he brought to the role and scene but the insights he was able to gather from an act of interpretation. He was so open and brought this sense of commitment to the part. He is a wonderful actor with a wide range of choices and tones. I would extremely recommend working with him.”
– Diego Andoni Rubio. Director. “All My Sons”
“Glenn fully enlivened the central role in this story. From the first round of auditions through shooting, he brought enriched nuance and depth to his portrayal of the character. I was blown away by his understanding, his character work, and the chemistry he had with his fellow lead. It was an absolute joy – and revelation – working with Glenn.”
– Emily Timmer. Director. “Latent”
“When Glenn delivers a line, you’re immediately transfixed by the richness of his voice. In short, every word engages the viewer, which is a brilliant quality for an actor to have. I was pleased to have Glenn on my film “Side Effects” and would definitely recommend him for other productions.”
– Jordan Gorman. Writer/Director. “Side Effects”
“Working with Glenn was a breeze. I directed a short film named “HOME” and from preparation to understanding the character was phenomenal. On production, I was surprised he knew what, where, and why the character is acting a certain way. Trust. I’d definitely recommend him for your film, you’ll thank me later.”
– Xabiso Mthoba, Director, “Home”
Glenn has access to a pool of energy that brings the character to life. His commitment is reflected in his eagerness to understand every aspect of the character as well as making sure to deliver what the director is looking for. It was a pleasure to have Glenn be part of my team. His presence on camera is captivating. Thank you, Glenn! Wish you all the best!
– Lula Barneche, Director, “Eyes Wide Open”

I’ve been proud to know Glenn Ratcliffe for over ten years. He’s a gifted actor who delivers a brilliant, raw, original performance that instantly connects with the audience, and touches their hearts. That genuine, open, unfiltered authenticity, combined with his powerful screen presence; 6 ft. 3 in., 190 lbs., Brown Hair, Blue Eyes, and the strength, determination, work ethic, and athleticism of being a former Professional Soccer player… Makes Glenn a force to be reckoned with! That special, goal oriented, practice till you drop, and learn from the best, until you are one of the best, that all the top athletes like Glenn possess, always makes him the “Directors Favorite”.
I recently saw Glenn do all of the above, when I was guest at his Sold Out World Premiere screening of: “I LOVE YOU” at the Staples Center here in Los Angeles. Where he commanded the Lead Role (David Mutch), with a Powerful, Honest Dignity, that was loved and respected by everyone on screen and in the Theatre. Amazing performances like these, are why Glenn has been ‘On Fire’! Booking five back-to-back leading roles in Feature Films: “Shadow of the Monarch”, “Merry Exmas”, “Sex, Marriage and Infidelity”, “The Black Tape”, & “I Love You”, all to rave reviews! He has also done great work in his Guest-Starring roles on “General Hospital”, “Days of Our Lives”, “Sirens”, “Reasonable Doubt”, & “Baywatch Nights”.
– Gerry Donato, Owner of Abraxas Talent.
Glenn has done all the ground work and is now reaping the rewards of his years of hard work. Offers for leading roles and commercials are pouring in, so you’d better act quickly and Book Glen for your project ASAP — while he’s still available.
– Gerry Donato, Owner of Abraxas Talent
Bringing a level of enthusiasm and thought to every line, Glenn is dedicated and truly talented at his craft. His level of preparation is enormous, but he is also extremely versatile, taking direction and delivering the desired performance in seconds. He’s a master at improv – in one scene, Glenn made up lines that were funnier than what I’d written, and I ended up using this take in my final film. Glenn brought a level of comedic genius to the role that made my film pop. Not only is he a great actor, but he’s also a great guy – positive, patient, encouraging, and kind, he’s definitely someone you’d want to work with.
– Rosa Nguyen, Writer/Director, “X-Rated”
“Glenn Ratcliffe plays ‘Marion Whitfield’ brilliantly.”
– Gerry Donato, Axeman II
“Glenn is a powerful and focused actor he was so great to work with, he brought realism, and deep emotional range that was so real you don’t know if he is acting or it is the real Glenn. I think it is both worlds, a great presence he has.”
– Oriah Mirza, Producer
“Glenn brought a tremendous amount of energy, enthusiasm, and creativity to his role in the Young and the Wrestlers. He is the rare actors who listens to direction but can also bring his own perspective and unique take. He was a pleasure to work with.”
– Eric Gross, Director, Young and the Wrestlers
“Glenn is a dedicated and passionate actor…he is reliable and delivers the work professionally and on time. He cares about his craft and has worked with me frequently to build his skills and experience. He is extremely versatile and a good energy on set. I would highly recommend him…not just generally for who he is as a person but for his acting ability…particularly in the market of lawyers, fathers, husbands and doctors. A Powerful presence in drama and Great at Comedy. He knows his craft”
– Linda Slade. MA , Royal Central School of Speech and Drama London, B.ed Hons Cantab. Cambridge University
Authentic, genuine, Glenn is the real deal: an actor’s actor, a director’s actor, and an audience’s true love. He can make viewers forget that they’re viewing; he brings them right in to the life he is creating as if it’s real — because, with Glenn, it is.
– Ann Crawford, Talent Associate
Glenn is a wonderful actor plus a great human being. It is obvious Glenn was born to be an actor, he has a natural talent and gift for the craft. He is an actor that completely dives into the character he is playing. In addition, Glenn is always a joy to work with, his kind heart and sparkling personality make him an actor any Director would be lucky to have on their set. Glenn is the whole package, a talented actor and a great person.
Kara Sullivan, Casting Director
I personally worked with Glenn as a director of Shadow of the Monarch suspense thriller feature. Glenn is a powerful, charismatic actor who is equally accomplished at drama and comedy. He can play anything as a talented, gifted professional who is always on time, courteous, and kind on the set with his loving energy and humor. One of the best actors going around. I would not hesitate to recommend Glenn for any film project.
– John Luksetich. Creator. Shadow of the Monarch.
Glenn is terrific to work with! We just did a Christmas Movie, Merry Ex-mas, and Glenn was so strong and easy to work with. Thank you Handsome!

– Ramone Menon
Glenn has got that thing that other people don’t have — a natural actor, great features, whiskey soaked voice, and great attitude. On set he is very eager to please and, when asked, can go off the script improv with the best of ’em. He really connects — the man has a presence. It’s an honor to work with him.
– Paul Gervasi. Director
Working with Glenn was a walk in the park. His ability to jump into character is almost baffling and a sight to behold. An absolute pleasure.
– Konstantin Vlas. Director

– Ross Jordan, Producer, Director, Editor
It was a pleasure to work with Glenn and get to know him. In addition to his training and diverse filmography, Glenn offers valuable life experience that transcends acting and reads incredibly naturalistic on screen. He could articulate the script, story and character both emotionally and intellectually, bringing a wide range of diverse takes and interpretation. Thank you, Glenn, for lending your energy, enthusiasm and talent to Wish We Were There.
– Ryan Oksenberg, writer/director, Wish We Were There
“Glenn was a pleasure to have on set, he showed up on time and prepared with the right questions in mind. A great person to have both in front of the camera and on set in general, would definitely recommend giving him a call!”
– Aidan Keith-Hynes, Director, Chrysalis

-Jameson Carr, Director

– Penny L. Moore, Director/Producer The Actors Group Theater
When I saw Glenn’s reel, it was a no-brainer to hire him for a role in our project. His performance in our Palladium Enterprises Industrial film did not disappoint. From rehearsal through delivery, Glenn carries a vivid authenticity that makes my job easy. Add to that, Glenn is truly a pleasure to work with. Can’t wait for the next opportunity to work with him.
– David Kalisher, Director, Jolly Road Productions
“Thank you for your positive energy on set. You really channeled the character. You came to set well prepared and asked questions. I appreciate all your hard work and the time you put into this project. I can’t wait to show you the final product.”
– Shila Farahani, Director/Producer, Rehab Time
GLENN IS EXCELLENT BOTH AS AN ACTOR AND A PERSON! I’m so glad to have him in my film. He did a lot of study for the role and always offers feedback — which makes my work easy! I also leaned good rehearsal skills from him during the rehearsal time. It was definitely a wonderful experience to work with Glenn! Especially during the shoot, when I had no time to speak with my actors, I found out he was practicing with the other actors by himself! I truly appreciate all he brings to the table and specifically to this project. I hope to work with him again in the future!
– Xinyue Li, Director/Producer. Wave.
“Glenn Ratcliffe added tremendous nuance to his role, drawing on his personal experiences to both understand and deepen the character as written. He had a very compelling take on the character, while remaining completely receptive to direction, and the questions he asked were smart and precise. He was also a pleasure to have on set: professional, friendly, and offering both guidance and praise to his co-stars.”
– Evan Baker, Director. “Rapacino’s Formula.”
“During an early table read for our production of Dennis Wilson Forevermore: A Beach Boy’s Fable, Glenn Ratcliffe was invited by cast member, Jasmin De Main, to read for the part of Beach Boys’ father, uncle and 1st manager, Murray Wilson. After finishing that early table read, all of us on the production staff were floored by Glenn’s unleashed dramatic read of volatile Murray Wilson, father, uncle and early manager of the Beach Boys. Glenn was hired by Eric O’Meara, playwright and executive producer of Dennis Wilson Forevermore, quite literally on the spot!
Glenn never missed a rehearsal. Glenn showed up prepared, consistently, night-after-night of run throughs and endless rehearsals. Glenn was our first actor to go off-book during the first week, and remained off-book throughout 3 months of our long, grueling preparations for the stage.
Glenn Ratcliffe is an accomplished, dynamic actor and professional. All of us on our production staff thank Glenn Ratcliffe for his amazing contribution to our play, Dennis Wilson Forevermore: A Beach Boy’s Fable.
Moreover, Glenn took it upon himself to not only research his own character in the play, Murray Wilson, but dug even deeper and thoroughly researched and studied Murry’s own family, especially Murray’s father, Buddy Wilson. Again, the level of work Glenn Ratcliffe did to prepare for his role as Beach Boy Father, Murray Wilson, was both exhaustive and very impressive.”
– Eric O’Meara. Playwright & Executive Producer. “Dennis Wilson Forevermore: A Beach Boy’s Fable”
“Dennis was a victim of extreme domestic violence at the hands of the tyrannical father-manager Murray Wilson (WELL PLAYED BY GLENN RATCLIFFE). Ratcliffe is so good at being bad, that you really have to hate his character and sympathize with the band members, especially sensitive, good guy Dennis, who tried so hard to make his life and career work.”
– Harrison Held, as published in his review of “Dennis Wilson Forevermore: A Beach Boy’s Fable” in the Los Angeles Beat
Glenn’s innate ability to find the emotional core of his character and bring us right into it is uncanny. When it comes to building a team, he is certainly someone you want to have on your side. His willingness to give of himself without expecting something in return makes everyone around him want to respond in kind. His positive energy is infectious. He inspires everyone around him to give their best effort. As a writer, I look to an actor as someone I can learn from. Glenn is a great teacher. He inspires me….
– Bob Bland, screenwriter, Doc Band-Aid
“The Beach boys groundbreaking innovative music was created in the midst of an angry controlling father (GREAT ACTING FROM GLENN RATCLIFFE) who caused permanent scars to both Dennis and Brian Wilson.”
– Wayne Jobson in his review via 103.1 FM Los Angeles.
Glenn recently voiced a few video game characters for me. He is a dedicated and talented actor. He brought a tremendous amount of energy,
enthusiasm, and creativity during his recording sessions. His voice range allowed him to give life to the characters. He totally understood the universe of the game and really channeled his characters. It was a pleasure to have him part of our production.
