I am elated to announce that Cassidy Brown has agreed to play the role of Bethany!
After giving her a chance to read the script, we met Tuesday night for a final meeting. I encouraged her to interview me as much as I needed to interview her. It was a blast. We discussed the different ways we like to prepare for a film and found that we have a lot in common. My primary goal was to determine whether or not Cassidy and I will collaborate in a productive and creative way. So after an hour of lively conversation, I was confident that we will work very well together and offered her the role.
Now that I know who will play Bethany, I will make a decision about the role of Rob. I wanted to cast Bethany first to determine who would be the most suitable to play Rob. I’m hoping to make a decision regarding Rob within a few days and will share the news immediately.
Cassidy is excited to join in on this blog, so you’ll get a chance to know her a lot more. I’d like her to share a bit about the audition process and what her approach was. Additionally, we are both looking forward to posting rehearsal videos and other elements capturing our work together.
I’m very fortunate that Cassidy is on-board and know she will embody Bethany in a genuine and powerful way. I can’t wait to start rehearsing!
