Britannica is the wrestling persona of British print model Rhonda Richardson in the hit Netflix series, GLOW. Her attempts to make it big in America didn’t work out. She is first introduced in the show as homeless, living in a car, and relying on men to give her money in the glitzy Santa Monica area. Her persona is characterized by her love of books, and of course, the fact she hails from Great Britain.
She eventually takes the role of the intellectual wrestler. Her trademark look is part wrestler, part librarian. She runs into trouble throughout the show because she is working illegally in the United States. After being refused a work visa, she is faced with the choice of returning home to her drunk parents in England or marrying in the US in order to stay. This forms a big part of the season 2 season finale–we won’t spoil the surprise!
