|Renee about her role: "The character I
play, Ashley, is a dancer who drags her friend with her to Vegas
because she has an audition to play a 'cat.' She thinks she's
auditioning for a production of the Broadway musical. The show turns
out to be 'Kittens.'"
"The movie is a romantic comedy about two ladies who end up in
Las Vegas and find true love. One's an American, the other's a New
Zealander. Bria, the New Zealander, played by Helena Beaven, is
about to be deported and is trying to stay in the United States."
"She ends up marrying Francis who's the son of a casino owner.
But Francis is engaged to be married the next day to the daughter of
a rival casino owner. They're trying to create a truce by marrying
the son and the daughter. However, they're absolutely wrong for each
"Francis marries Bria so she can stay in the country. But she's
afraid because his family is like the Italian Mafioso and they send
their henchmen after her. Bria then falls for the head henchman."
"My character gets food poisoning. I go to see a male nurse who
turns out to be . . . Francis! He helps me feel better and I fall in
love with him." (to be continued)
Renee also said "I chose this script out of all the ones
I've been looking at because it was one of the funniest I'd read. It
has an energy on the page which I hope translates to the screen and
the audience. It came to me by way of Aaron Morton who did the
lighting on "Dangerous Prey," the Xena episode I directed. Aaron did
the lighting on a movie called Nemesis Game and introduced me to the
guys who wrote, produced and directed that movie. They in turn
introduced me to Helena. It all began with Xena."
