Once again, I’m playing catch up with my Blog! 2016 saw an increase in my on camera work along with a steady flow of voice over projects! I was thrilled to appear on an episode of ABC’s “The Middle” (Birds of a Feather) in a scene with wonderful Patricia Heaton and Jack McBrayor! What a hoot!
Then I filmed a short titled “Middle Ground” – hmm, sensing a theme? It is a dark comedy, and I’m so anxious to see the final edit – and get my footage, of course! I had a wonderful time shooting in Chapman and Santa Anna, Ca for that. The wonderful cast included Rory O’Connor, Laynie Mitchell, and Blaine Vedros.
This summer, I had a great time shooting another short film in Shreveport, La. which has been submitted for the LA Film Prize – “Tender Moments”. The character I played was such fun. Again, anxiously awaiting footage that I can share from that one, too! Pictured with me here are the lovely and talented Shelley Calene Black and Julitta Pourciau. Brian Watson, Heather Bloom and Joe Grissafi rounded out our all star cast!
I’ve been spending time at home with family over the summer, and will be heading back to LA very soon for episodic season. Looking forward to having more fun with even bigger and better roles to come!
