Originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia, a recent transplant from Hollywood, and now living in Austin, Texas, Pamela began performing for family at the age of 4 and by age 6, was singing and dancing professionally on stage with the "Weaver Sisters" at USO shows, aboard Naval ships, US Naval Hospitals and USO Clubs in the Tidewater Area. She made her television debut at age 6 on The Ted Mack Talent Hour. She has performed in more than 100 plays on both the East and West Coasts in addition to more than 15 films, 4 television shows as of 2011. Her dreams came true at age 30, when she was cast in the role of Bob Hope's best friend, Sophie Tucker for A Salute to Bob Hope and realized her childhood dreams of being on stage with Mr. Hope, the man that inspired her during her work with the USO as a child performer.Her feature film debut was playing the featured role of the saloon waitress, Patsy in "Butterfly" starring Pia Zadora, Stacy Keach and Orson Welles, among others. She starred opposite Lionel Stander in the film Joey Takes A Cab, which co-starred Kathleen Freeman, Jackie Gayle, Kaye Ballard, Eileen Brennan, Bruce Kirby, Michael J. Pollard, Alex Cord, among others. She studied with some of the greatest teachers including Joseph Bernard, Stella Adler, and received a scholarship to attend the Lee Strasberg Institute in Hollywood.While continuing to study her acting craft, she was employed in the entertainment legal field as an executive legal secretary. Here, she learned about contracts and the business side of film and television. Her 8-year marriage to musician and band leader husband, Carl Hosbond, produced one daughter, Ariana, which gave her additional experience working for her husband as a music copyist. She also gained invaluable experience as the Personal Assistant to internationally known singer-songwriter, Paul Anka.As many students of the arts are plagued with the tragedies of life as well as joy, she experienced many heartaches in love, family and illnesses but believes it was those tragedies that have allowed her to experience life to its fullest in a sort-of balancing act. "No longer do I look at difficulties as problems but as new adventures to be experienced. I believe these experiences have enriched my character and have permitted me to go more deeply into portraying characters and being a part of the story-telling process," says Pamela.In 2008, she created the Austin Actors Conservatory, a group of professional actors who have teamed up with talented filmmakers, writers and musicians to present live staged readings of a chosen writer's screen and/or teleplay and providing educational seminars, with the aim at raising the bar in Texas.After a life-transforming experience in South America in 2006, Pamela went behind the camera with her directorial debut, having directed and edited the documentary portion of "Keepers of the Light." This film is a true story that Pamela felt compelled to share with the world.
