MATCHMAKERS' Pilot filmed on location in Hollywood

Hi all,
my first filming experience of 2012 is a wrap!
MATCHMAKERS is a new webseries, filmed under a New Media SAG contract, which will hopefully be picked up by Comedy Central.
I play the rather free-spirited, sometimes naughty lead character of KYLIE who ends up in some awkward situations.

This is an awesome and fun project, directed by Aaron Matijasic and produced by Amy Main.
I will keep my fingers crossed that this pilot will get picked up. It would be a perfect fit for Comedy Central.

Proudest moment on the set:
Producer Amy Main announced that during the casting process for the role of Kylie they had no one else read   after I auditioned for it because they made their choice right there and then and didn't feel the need to see anybody else. Wow - that is quite a compliment:)

Most surprising moment on set:
Director Aaron Matijasic decided it was time for my first film kiss! No need to worry: it was a little kiss on the lips....and my mom was nearby to keep an eye on everything too:)

That's all.... And how was your week-end?

Thanks for stopping by!

"A.B.S." Screening on 1/3/12 in North Hollywood

I was honored to attend the private screening of Brighid Fleming's project "A.B.S." tonight at a theater in the heart of North Hollywood. 
Brighid is the writer/director of this SAG short film and she also played one of the roles.

I am very happy that so many people came out to support her because it is really quite an accomplishment to make a project of such high quality when you are just 12 years old!
Actress Maria Olsen and me
It was wonderful to see accomplished actress Maria Olsen, who plays Madam Vladimer in the movie. We took the opportunity and discussed our upcoming table read for the horror/psychothriller SOLACE, which will happen by the end of this month.
