Annalee Jefferies (born May 14, 1954 in Houston, Texas) is a stage actress.


Jefferies started acting at the Twelfth Night Community Theatre [ [ Twelfth Night Community Theatre] ] in Brisbane, Australia when she was 10 years old. She studied drama under June Smith at Bellaire High and under Sidney Berger and Cecil Pickett at the University of Houston (Pickett also coached other notable actors including Cindy Pickett, his daughter, Randy Quaid, Dennis Quaid, Brent Spiner, Trey Wilson, Robert Wuhl and Thomas Schlamme). Her formal training also included two years at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

Her most noted roles during 17 seasons with the Alley Theatre in Houston, Texas are Blanche in "A Streetcar Named Desire", the title role in Hedda Gabler, Harper in "Angels in America", Nurse Ratched in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and Marion in "Danton's Death". During her time at the Alley, she has also performed in over 15 productions across the nation and abroad.

Most recently she played a lizard in Edward Albee's "Seascape" and took a sabbatical from the Alley during the 2000-2001 season to perform Clytemnestra, Helen of Troy and Andromache in John Barton's 10-hour epic "Tantalus", directed by Sir Peter Hall, which originated at Denver Center Theatre Company (co-produced by the RSC) and had a five-month UK tour. Prior to the Alley Theatre, she spent three years as a company member at the Arena Stage Theater in Washington D.C. She lived in New York City for five years working at local and regional theatres.

Her film and television credits include "No Mercy", "Violets Are Blue", "Ned Blessing", "Walker Texas Ranger", "L.A. Law", and "Charlie's Angels".
