Although the pilot I shot in December  (with Jennie Garth, John O’Hurley, and Rachel Cannon) was not picked up by ABC Family (BOO!!!!) you can still watch it on the web at http://vimeo.com/39024851  (YEAH!!!)

11-11-11 was a BIG day – a HUGE day… J. EDGAR opened nationwide (my first feature film) and I was cast in the new abc family pilot, VILLAGE PEOPLE, starring Jennie Garth (WOOT-WOOT!).  The show is sort of like Juno meets Parenthood.  My character, Ione, is a 15 year old kid who is in foster care because her parents robbed a jewelry store and went to prison.  Remarkably, Ione is relatively undamaged by all this drama, and is smart, funny, thoughtful and articulate…oh, there is one small problem though…  I am seven months pregnant.  In the show!  Again, like the smoking thing – this is my character – not ME.  Anyway, Ione is stupid enough to get pregnant but smart enough to know she can’t raise a child, so she finds someone, Alexa (Jennie Garth), to adopt the baby.  The script is super funny and I cannot wait to meet the rest of the cast and start working on it!

It is also super cool because for the past couple of years I have been involved with this charity called BAGS 4 KIDS that puts together comfort packs of stuff to help foster kids feel less scared and alone when they are taken into the system. So, playing a foster kid who puts her baby up for adoption will hopefully give me a chance to raise awareness about how people (like YOU!) can help make a difference in a foster kids life.  You can learn more about how you can get involved at www.bags4kids.org  Check it out!
