Stunningly beautiful, Bree Condon is a professional model and actress who was born in Newport Beach, California.
She is known for roles in many popular productions, one of them being the film Ironclad, as Agnes (2011).
Bree can be seen in Lionsgate’s highly anticipated drama Bombshell. Taken from real headlines the docudrama is directed by Jay Roach and follows the women who revolted against late Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes for sexual misconduct. Bree shines in the almost uncanny portrayal of news personality and former co-host of FNC’s The Five, Kimberly Guilfoyle. Guilfoyle, who began her career at Fox News in 2006, left the network in the summer of 2018 with reports alleging that she was released amidst accusations of sexual misconduct.
The film, which also stars John Lithgow as Ailes, Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson, Margot Robbie as the fictional Kayla Pospisil, Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly, and Allison Janney as lawyer Susan Estrich, has already garnered awards buzz, being included on a handful of Academy Award predictions lists. Bombshell will be released nationwide on December 20, 2019.
On television, Bree appeared as Sarah in season 5 of Tyler Perry’s hit drama series The Haves and the Have Nots. Other TV credits include ABC’s American Housewife, The Real O’Neals, The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Fox’s Lucifer, and CBS’s The Young and the Restless, to name a few. She also appeared in the 2015 Lifetime biopic Whitney, based on the life of Whitney Houston.
Chilled sat with Condon to discover some of her most beloved dishes and drinks.
Tell us about the projects you are working on.
You can find me playing Kimberly Guilfoyle in Lionsgate’s Bombshell directed by Jay Roach.
With your busy schedule, what do you like to do with your downtime?
I spend most of my downtime outdoors. I’m a California native so I love to play tennis, swim, and go on hikes. When I’m not getting active, you can find me at my local French café, Zinque, chatting with friends. I love having a neighborhood spot where locals just pass through and you can meet your friends by chance.
When you go out to eat, where do you like to dine?
I’m a sucker for the atmosphere. I love an intimate and romantic feel to a restaurant. Candlelight is very important for the mood. An old-world feel is what I’m after.
What types of dishes do you typically order?
I love Italian food. I spent a lot of time in my early 20’s living and modeling in Italy. So, I know and love fresh food. To me, a plate of homemade pasta is the perfect meal.
Any favorite bars?
I love a good dive bar or any establishment where there’s a chance that people might break into song. I love the spontaneity of an Irish Pub. A good time is basically guaranteed.
What drinks do you order when out?
After spending a lot of time in Europe last summer, I’ve been ordering an Aperol Spritz. It’s light, and it can evoke a feeling of being abroad in the summertime. Any drink that can conjure up a nostalgic feeling is wonderful.
Do you prepare drinks at home?
Very rarely, only when I have guests over. I recently made a delicious Elderflower Thyme Martini that went over well, almost too well!
Tell us about your home bar. What is it stocked with?
My home bar is mainly stocked with vintage cocktail recipe books. I like to browse old bookshops, but I like to have a task! I’ve recently been on the hunt for old rare cocktail books.
What’s your favorite drink?
When I do drink, I only drink wine. So, I would say a nice crisp glass of Sancerre.
If you could share a drink with anyone, who would it be?
I would love to share a drink with Mata Hari. She was a Dutch courtesan who was convicted of being a spy for Germany during WW1. I can’t imagine the stories she would have to tell.
