How I Seize It

Cinda McCain

Loretta Jenkins

Cinda McCain relocated to Nashville, TN in 1988. A Mississippi native, she now considers herself a Nashvillian, and most of her acting achievements have been performed there. She has received numerous acting awards, and has been referred to as “one of the most naturally gifted actors you’ll find on a stage anywhere,” receiving countless rave reviews, and her reputation is that of a “gut” actress.
Her resume is full of some of the best theatrical roles for women: Blanche DuBois in Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire (which won her the First Night Award for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Play); Beatrice in The Effect Of Gamma Rays On Man In the Moon Marigolds; Meg in Crimes of the Heart; Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - the list goes on and on.
Cinda has also accumulated several film credits which include feature films, independent films, music videos, industrials and commercials. She has appeared in Country Strong, starring Garrett Hedlund and Gwyneth Paltrow and in Black, White and Blues, with Michael Clarke Duncan and Tom Skerritt. Her most recent film endeavor is as Loretta in Trailer Made, a web series scheduled to debut Fall 2010, and its spinoff vlog, How I Seize It. McCain enjoys vacillating between heavy dramatic roles and comedic roles, and is exceptional in both arenas. Cinda has begun sharing her acting secrets by serving as an Acting Coach on a one-on-one basis.
