Co-written by and starring Wally Marzano-Lesnevich and Francesco Nuzzi (plus we also have the crazy-talented Garry Pastore!), “Therapy, Bro” will have you in stitches! Thank you to Francesco, Wally, and our director John Hedlund for inviting me to play! Now in post-production… stay tuned for more information in the coming months!

Late on Saturday night we wrapped our shoot for “The Gift”. This shoot was indie filmmaking at its best. Cool story by Tom Ryan. Excellent cast including Adam Ginsberg, Danielle Najarian and John Zion. And a fantastic crew – lead by our director, Tom Ryan.
My character was unlike any character I’ve played to date. She was gritty, flawed, vulnerable and living a rough life. The kind of rough life that’s never touched my own. I want to thank Tom for giving me the opportunity and for having faith in my ability to become Donna, despite my body of work consisting of mostly white collar suburban Mom roles, giving no specific evidence that I could tackle such a dark character. This was such a meaty role – she had so many layers – and I was honored to peel them away and find her – and find a little bit of myself somewhere in there, too.
I play the lead role of Annette in this suspenseful short 1960’s period film, directed by Nancy Menagh. We had a fantastic turnout and it was wonderful seeing it on the big screen for the first time and hearing the overwhelming words of praise for our project. We’ll have more festival announcements coming soon but, in the meantime, have a look at our TRAILER!

Thanks, Bill, for having me on New Jersey 101.5 this morning to discuss my new film As It Seems, our premiere this weekend at the Manhattan Film Festival, expired leftovers, and bathtub scenes…
