Exclamatory Statements!

august 6, 2021

We're doing the thing! So grateful Justin Hobson, Phil Kruse, and Donnie Jarmon invited m to be a part of this really special project for the 48 Hour Film Festival. Okay gotta go finish filming bc time is running ooouuut!

June 16, 2021

When they sent me this script, I could not WAIT to get my Ripley on and go disobey stupid orders and kick some alien hindquarters. Then to find out I go to work with the inimitable Sean Young who originated the role my character was based on back in the 1984 DUNE... Let's just say I have been pumped every day to get up and go to set.

 

Stay tuned for Planet Dune coming this Fall!

May 18, 2021

Ugh I'm so sick of having to work with the most fun, collaborative, creative group of people I've ever met. Can't Harmon Brothers just give it a rest and stop being so absurdly talented and hilarious?!

But for cereal, getting transported back into time and channeling my best Rod Serling/Rita Hayworth love child was some of the most fun I've had on set since... well since the last time HB let me come play with them this summer!

Stay tuned for this national spot for Lume Deodorant!

April 17, 2021

New poster art for The Discernment, the film adaptation of the original graphic novel by Dewayne Hill. You know you're in for a treat when your director is an actual magician. Prepare to be amazed...

March 28, 2021

Whew! Just wrapped my first solo directing gig! Remember back in November when I said I got to see some old pals on set? One of them was Derek Ocampo who brought this beautiful story to me, and Tim Buel just shot the heck out of it! Such a challenge working on and behind the camera at the same time, but what an amazing team to help get us through it. "I'll remember you..."

March 22, 2021

Wooowww today ended an incredibly special shoot. Anthony Ferrante, thank you for continuing to want to work with me, and for bringing such an inspired, poignant story to life. Really excited to share this one, y'all.

February 12, 2021

Today's ADR session offered a little look-see into how our Lifetime film is coming along! Y'all, I am cheering for this one-- it's going to be steamy, dreamy, AND scheme-y....

February 11, 2021

Okay last year's birthday I got paid to be a princess and improvise with some of the funniest folks in Utah. THIS year, I got paid to improvise with one of my favorite comedic actors of all time, and he even sang me happy birthday when production surprised me with the most delectable cupcakes I've ever had! I don't know what kind of one-upmanship the universe is playing with me, but this will be pretty impossible to top...

January 31, 2021

ADR for AOI. Always fun to get a sneak peek of upcoming releases! Cannot wait to see this end-of-the-world schlock we had so much fun filming.

december 21 2020

I don't know what energy I'm putting out into the universe, but this is my third role this year where I get to save the world from destructive forces. No complaints here though... Next stop: Marvel?

Also we were too busy shooting non-stop that this is literally the only photo I got during the shoot. My "husband" and "step-daughter" are so prettyyyy!

november 7 2020

So I got a call two days ago asking if I could shoot pickups for a film that was shot this summer. The next day I had my fitting, but still had no pages--- Okay cool, must not be a lot of dialogue. Midnight before my 7am calltime, I get the script. Turns out they turned this character from a name mentioned by her ex-husband into a supporting lead in the plot to save the world! Thank goodness for a lifetime in theatre and enough brain plasticity to inhale these words... And ran into some old pals along the way-- Chris Boudreaux killed it! 

october 31, 2020

What better way to celebrate Halloween than filming a seance scene in a rickety old house in Ybor City while being directed by an actual practitioner of magic? Trick question. There IS no better way. Magician Dewayne Hill is making something spooky and... well, magical. So grateful to be a part of it!

september 23, 2020

Give me an L!

Give me an I!

Give me a... FETIME!

What's that spell? Lifetime. It spells Lifetime. Kinda. Luckily, I only play a cheer coach on TV. You'll learn not to cross me as I FINALLY get to play a villain in this incredibly fun tale of revenge and rah-rah-rahs. Thank you , Stella Nova Casting!!

 

Stay tuned for updates about its air date...

august 14, 2020

We did it. It's been 3 years from the start of pre-production. A year and a half since I signed on. And just like that, principal photography on Libra has wrapped. Josh Mabie has led us through fires to get here, and I cannot wait to see where he takes it from here. Sean Gallagher is a prince among men. I love working with people so good at what they do, and these folks are THE BEST!

July 6, 2020

We had no fun on this set...

Harmon Brothers are at it again! And they let me come play too! Jason Gray is one of the funniest dudes alive. Seriously, I can't decide what part of the shoot was more fun: Jason's improv with our writer Zach Atherton, or meeting the llamas and baby turtles... the fact that he's even in the running with live animals speaks volumes. Thanks B-Hyve, for letting me represent your stealthy flood detector and roll my eyes a ton at my pretend husband :)

June 25, 2020

Here I come to save the daaay! So this would have been a lot easier to shoot in the snow-capped Mammoth Mountains in March, but thanks to certain pandemics which shall remain nameless, here we are in sweltering San Fernando Valley in June. But I get to save the world, so I'll just keep stuffing my bra with ice packs for nursing women and carry on...

LIFELONG DREAM ALERT #2!

I can't believe it y'all. It only took a global pandemic for me to realize my true self as "depressed woman in grayscale who doesn't have the product we're trying to sell you."  (I also got to be enlightened and happy once I had a new vacuum, but that wasn't part of my childhood dream, so who cares)

Suck it, Coronavirus!

march 31, 2020

Not necessarily news, an announcement, or an exclamatory statement, but in today's quarantine living, working on my selftapes has been the most noteworthy achievement of the past couple weeks! Stay healthy, stay sane, and stay home, everybody!

Sharknado Poster.jpg

march 15, 2020

LIFELONG DREAM ALERT! Seriously, as a youngin' my two career ambitions were to be in a Sharknado-esque film and to be the bumbling gray-scale idiot in an infomercial. One down, one to go!

 

I just booked a lead role in an Asylum film! These are the whacky filmmakers that brought us precious gems like Sharknado, Airplane Vs. Volcanoe, and every other incredible end-of-the-world guilty pleasure. Could not be more excited to start filming our icy apocalyptic mockbuster!

Wear It To Heart BTS

feb 19, 2020

Always such a treat to work with DP Nik Shaw! Today we got to kick it in the beautiful Pacific Palisades overlooking Los Angeles in some incredibly comfortable Wear It To Heart gear. You can bet I went and ordered myself two sets of workout clothes during lunch! (Also it was super sunny so we were saving our pretty faces for when the camera was rolling...)

Screen grab from Keto Chow commercial

No better way to spend my birthday than doing stunts in a 10 ft wig in the snowy mountains of Utah with the incredible team from Harmon Brothers (The Squatty Potty folks!). Please note, this is not sarcasm, rather an expression of my most sincere and grateful feelings. This shoot was one of the most fun to-date and I am tangled with excitement to see the final cut!

Well today is the Super Bowl and the original air date for my Mr. Peanut debut. Planters is reevaluating the campaign, given the recent tragic helicopter crash, so my portion of the ad will not air today. My heart goes out to the families of all the victims. Anyone looking for a much-needed laugh during this dark time can click the video to see Matt Walsh and Wesley Snipes act like fools (next to an animated little ol' me).

UCB classes started today!

Jan 6, 2020

After 4 years of putting it off, I FINALLY enrolled in the improv training program at UCB! Following in the footsteps of some of my favorite improvisers like Amy Poehler, Zach Woods, Kate McKinnon, Donald Glover and billions more. To that I say, "Yes, and!" (Ew I hate myself a little for that incredibly niche dad joke).

What a stinkin' honor to be a part of Libra, the latest series from writer/director Josh Mabie. This was my first attempt at learning stunt choreography, and Alfred Hsing is one of the most knowledgeable, competent, badass, (er uh PATIENT) stunt guys around. Here's some BTS of what we were working on. Now going to find an ice bath...

Okay, real talk, this is the most fun I've had on set for a while. When Anna Golin calls you to ask you to be an intergalactic aerobics instructor, you break out your Jane Fonda and get to set! Stay tuned for this quirky, charming film, FIDO

Loved working beside Tom Williamson and Michael Figari in this gorgeous story.

Who knew I had to travel 3000 miles, over the river and through the YouTube woods to partner with my neighbor from the South, Sawyer Hartman. Had so much fun shooting this vlog for Malibu Rum! Also, "rum" rhymes with "yum" cuz God don't make no mistakes.
