I’ll be performing a staged reading of the new play “The Truth”, based on the popular book “The Truth (I’m A Girl, I’m Smart and I Know Everything)”, by Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein. (Those who know me may say I was type cast…) The reading, which will take place on June 2nd in Asbury Park, is produced by the ReVision Theater and is directed by Bob Angelini.
I spent a fantastic birthday weekend shooting “Meet Me There“, written and directed by the very talented Steve Morey. I love this story – it’s a thriller – and sort of a twisted love story. The fabulous Robert Pate starred as my husband and my son was played by the adorable Alex Kagan. We shot in a gorgeous old mansion in Brooklyn – a perfectly big, creaky house for a thriller! The footage I’ve seen so far looks fantastic – I can’t wait to see it – and for you all to see it too!
Today I shot a commercial for Prestige Motors Mercedes Benz! I played a very satisfied new Mercedes owner, and the mother of the lovely KylieRae Condon. The spot was directed by Michael Schmidt. Look for it to start airing on or about March 18th on CBS in New York, New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania.
Filming wrapped last night for “Benny”, which was bittersweet, as shooting a film with my son was an experience I will always treasure and I didn’t want it to end, but after two 12-hour shoot days, he was exhausted and I couldn’t wait to put him to bed! But I am thankful for the chance to share what I love to do with my talented little man. And I would be remiss if I did not mention how it was also wonderful to share the screen with Ashley Licata, the actress playing Benny’s imaginary friend! We had a great crew and it was a pleasure to work on another Carey Hu film. Look for “Benny” to hit the festival circucit!
I am super excited to be playing the mother of my actual son, Colin, who will be playing the title role of Benny. He is such a natural performer and I am overjoyed by how much he is enjoying acting in his first film. We had a read through and blocking rehearsal today and we shoot “Benny” this weekend! I am also happy to be working once again with the very talented Carey Hu (Director), with Htat Htut as Director of Photography. “Benny” is an independent short film which will be shot on Super 16 mm film.
