The Star Scoop:
How did you become involved in Fitful?
A casting director approached me. She was casting for Rich [Brauer, the writer/director]. She sent me the script and said, quote, "I hope you get this" [laughs]. I thought it was great, the reason being is that it has a very peculiar tone to it. It's a dark comedy/thriller. I was intrigued by the comedy aspect and when I realized the writer was going to be the director, I thought it would be a good fit for me. It's such a specific tone that I thought that the writer needed to direct this to get the tone to come across on screen. I really didn't do much research on Rich; I didn't know much about him at all.
That's not my usual style. I usually try to find out what someone's done and how much experience they have and if they are a first time director. And if so, then I usually call and try to get an idea of what they're going for. With Rich, I didn't at all. I just completely went by an instinct based on the script. The script, again, was so quirky and interesting. After I finished the script, it probably took me an hour to try to figure out what the whole thing was about. Then I called back and said I'd love to do it. It was just a matter of Rich looking at my reel and figuring out if I was a good match for him. And that's how that worked out.
