Rachel Cannon: Oklahoma to Hollywood and back

Rachel Cannon's Instagram feed says a lot. It highlights a successful and impressive career. Images from TV and movie sets mix with photos of family and hugs with friends.


Oklahoma native Rachel Cannon talks about her career that has included successful roles on "Mad Men" and "Fresh Off the Boat" and her upcoming film "Send Me Wings."

Those images are accompanied by informative descriptions. Cannon is intentional. She studied film at the University of Oklahoma with Hollywood on her radar. Her efforts resulted in a resume that includes starring roles on "Mad Men" and the recently concluded ABC series "Fresh Off the Boat."


She's back in Oklahoma now to focus more on family, trading traffic on the 405 for living in the 405 while continuing her career.

Cannon sat down with us in The Oklahoman's studio on Monday morning to recap her run on "Fresh Off the Boat" and to tease what's next, including if she embraces social media or is just good at it. Watch that interview in the video embedded above.

For more coverage, my colleague Brandy McDonnell previewed Cannon's final episode of "Fresh Off the Boat" and will have an upcoming preview of "Send Me Wings," a film Cannon produced with Lance McDaniel.
