Genna graduated from the prestigious Central School of Speech and Drama BA Acting course, and has gone on to appear in various productions in Theatre and Film.

A highly versatile and unique actress, Genna has played extremely varied and challenging roles throughout her training and professional career. Notable roles include Lord Aumerle (Richard II), Procne (The Love of the Nightingale) and Pompey (Measure for Measure). She was described by one director as "chameleonic" in her ability to play vastly contrasting roles and has been praised highly for her portrayal of besieged characters and emotional range. As Summer in Happy Here at The White Bear Theatre, one reviewer commented: "Genna Foden's performance was...understated, quiet excellence".

Genna is adept at both passion and restraint and relishes the challenge of playing characters from all parts of society.

Genna is also experienced in comedy and has recently worked with cult director Donald Takeshita-Guy in television pilot (Project A.G.AU) and Sci-Fi rock opera Bikini Blitzkreig which was well received at the London Portobello Film Festival.

She is an experienced horse rider, and has currently started writing scripts.
