The Character: On the outside Anne appears to be a normal and kind woman, but in reality she is remarkably strong in will and conviction. She served her country during the cold war as a spy, and always got the job done. She has faced many hardships in her life to bring her to where she is today, and then to top it all off, she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Knowing she doesn't have much time left, she sets out to confront her past and faces her fate head on. The only person she ever loved was murdered, and she is going to find out who ordered the hit. After the brutal life she has endured, she will be dying on her own terms.

The Actor: After taking a 12 year break from acting to get a degree and raise her son, April finally returned and secured an agent in Dallas and an agent in the Southeast and resumed her journey to become a great actor.  She now has over 30 feature film credits, over 40 short films, countless commercials, theatre, stunt work and voice-overs on her resume.   April has had films tour the festival circuit all over the United States and abroad including Cannes Film Festival, USA Film festival, and many more.  Not only have her films done extremely well, they have also earned her 8 best Actor nominations and 5 best Actor wins.  She just finished production on two features:  Howlers, starring opposite Sean Patrick Flannery and Chad Michael Collins and stunt double duty for Tammy Blanchard for the feature Warning Shot.  She still studies with the same acting coach in Dallas after 8 years, Theresa Bell.  April is currently represented by Linda McAlister Talent in Dallas and Action Talent agency in Mississippi.

The Character: Barker is old fashioned with strong militaristic values and characteristics. He fought in Vietnam, which left emotional scars on him. Perhaps the last friends he ever made were his war buddies and he is left very much alone in solitude. A tough exterior combined with strong pride in his country make him appear very hardened. The only person who has the ability to break this hard outer shell is the one that got away: Anne.

The Actor: David Raizor is a full time working professional actor who has appeared in over eighty films both feature length and shorts.  He has performed in over 300 live shows, including theater, murder mystery shows, clown shows, improv shows, and magic shows.  In addition he has appeared in several commercials, industrials and has been featured on billboards, bus stop benches and other print media. He studies the Meisner style of acting and has taken acting classes at Valencia College, Art’s Sake Studios, Class Act Studios and others.  He also takes every workshop he can to always be growing in his craft.  David loves to bring characters to life both on stage and in front of the camera.
