Anne Sorrentino
Rosanne Sorrentino was born on January 15, 1968, in Oceanside, Long Island, New York. She made her professional stage debut in the 3rd National Tour of Annie in 1980-81, playing the title role of Annie. 
 
Sorrentino was “bitten by the acting bug” in 1976, when she played a schoolgirl in the American Academy of Dramatic Art’s summer workshop production of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Although Sorrentino received critical acclaim for her stage portrayal of Annie, she was considered too old (13 years) to be casted as Annie in the film version. Instead, after auditioning, she was offered and accepted, the role of Pepper-the oldest, bossiest orphan.
