Brianne Davis

From bringing compelling characters to life on screen as an actor, calling the shots behind the scenes as a director and producer, lending her thoughts and opinions to the podcast airwaves, and even penning her debut literary work, Brianne Davis has emerged in the entertainment industry as a powerhouse female creative in 2022.

In film and television, Brianne most recently starred on the History Channel’s “Six.” Additional TV credits include Netflix’s “Lucifer,” Hulu’s “Casual,” and HBO’s “True Blood.” Brianne’s first lead role in film came in 2005 with the blockbuster hit “Jarhead” starring opposite Jake Gyllenhaal. She also starred in the horror film “Prom Night.”

Thriving behind the camera, as much as in front, under her production company Give & Take Productions, Brianne has produced three films while also directing “The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story” and “Deadly Signal.”

With over 12 years of recovery as a Sex and Love Addict, Brianne hosts the popular personal journal podcast “Secret Life.” The podcast launched in August 2020 and features inspiring true confessions from an eclectic group of guests, unpacking a plethora of taboo topics. Brianne’s latest venture in the “Secret Life” brand is her debut novel, “Secret Life of a Hollywood Sex & Love Addict,” which instantly hit the best-sellers list on Amazon earlier this year.

She is a renowned sober coach in addiction recovery. She has spoken on over 200 podcasts and television shows, including The Doctors, The Daily Blast, and many more as an advocate for creating awareness of the deadly disease of sex and love addiction. She has also penned several articles on the subject for Cosmopolitan UK, Daily Beast, HuffPost, and The Drill. She is currently in rewrites for the follow-up novel of the Secret Life series and developing it as a tv series.

Brianne currently resides in the Los Angeles area with her husband Mark Gantt and son, Davis.
