In December 2019 I had one of the best experiences of my life both professionally and personally. I flew up to the wonderful town of Henderson to shoot the sequel to the 1994 classic: Chantilly Lace. I didn’t know when I booked this job what a dream come true it would be. I got to work with some absolute legends of film and TV: Talia Shire, Lindsay Crouse, Patricia Richardson, Jill Eikenberry and Helen Slater. How they have enriched my life and my craft as an actor is beyond measure.
Even more of a bonus is the wonderful people from a town that has captured my heart, not only did I get to live in this unbelievable mansion which was more like a fairytale than I could put into words:
But the friends I made: the wonderful production crew from the town who put all other crew’s to shame – their hospitality, kindness and friendship will stay with me forever and I am now so grateful to be able to say they will be my life-long friends – Jill, Torre, Gail – my girls! And the best Line Producer and friend on our second project together: my darling Dee.
From start to finish this was a dream come true – I will be grateful for as a long as I live for that incredible week I got to spend living like a movie-star princess. Acting is not just a passion for me – it is me, it opens up worlds and possibilities that make every day worth getting out of bed for, to see just what it has in store. #longmayitcontinue
