Thanks to all the hard work and incredible effort on everyone's part. And please come to the screening - and the fabulous party afterwards! - if you're in town!

"Le Sejour," the prequel to Rachel Earnest's award-winning short "Le Retour," is halfway through filming.

The film crew flew to Cannes, France back in April to shoot the first section of the film. They captured some amazing footage of the beautiful French Riviera, the crazy Cannes crowds, and even got some beautiful shots of the Cannes Film Festival itself! More info and preview trailer coming soon.

This morning at 8amEST/5amPAC the co-creators of Mary Marie were interviewed by Drew Kelly on 94KX, in Sunbury, Pennsylvania. Their interview follows their last July interview with Def Leppard!

In a few days the recorded interview will be posted here

Thanks for all of your support! Visit the link above and become fans of Mary Marie!!

Thanks to the gracious people at the Sonoma Valley Film Festival, I was given the pleasure and the honor to be a featured panelist alongside Michael Keaton and Matthew Modine for the festival's actors panel. The seven of us answered questions about what its like to be in the biz, the challenges actors face nowadays, and differences between independent projects and studio films.

It was a joy to be involved, and the festival was a delight!

Thank you all!

Thanks to the kind organizers of The Method Festival in Calabasas, CA, I was honored with a nomination for Best Actress in a Short Film.

This is especially exciting, since the festival is specifically focused on the acting side to filmmaking.

Thank you Method Fest!
