Alex Speith is a comedic genius, and is the star and creator of the hilarious and quirky webseries, (Blank) My Life. I'm thrilled to play a role in the final episode of Season 2, shooting later this month- it'll be a nice change of pace from crying myself to sleep about our current administration.
Hanging with Super Heroes
Shhhh. I got to work on a super-secret (that is, if you live under a rock) Netflix show about some beloved and well-known super heroes. S.J. Clarkson directed the episode, and she was great- strong and creative, kind and funny...just a wonderful model for women in the film and TV industry. My scene involved some intense work from the steadicam operator- he was the hero of the day, for sure. I'm looking forward to seeing the episode (Ep 101) sometime in 2017!
