Their NC Casting Director had come down with a case of bubonic plague. Perhaps it was just a really nasty flu bug. Either way, the poor girl had been out for almost 7 days. As I had experience in casting and a good relationship with the current CD, the producers asked me to step in. I was honored to do so. Although, this did mean that I wouldn't be cast in the film now.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with the local cast, including Gil Newsom, Tracey Coppedge, Robert Crayton, R. Keith Harris and many others, notably a cadre of young actors who played the ghosts of children. The lead actors, cast by Pemrick Fronk Casting, were Jason Cook, Valerie Azlynn and the inimitable Lance Henriksen. All three of them were kind people who were an inspiration to our young cast members. I can't thank each of them enough!
We hope you'll keep an eye out (perhaps plucked out?) for the horror film Nevermore!
