RE: THE UNBORN 

When I first read the script I told my agent, "I have to do this film". I was so impressed not only with the quality of the writing but the story. It's movies like these that actors dream of doing. I practically begged Sam and Serita to let me do the movie in our first meeting. I am beyond thrilled to have been a part of such a wonderful crew. Serita Stevens won an award for the screenplay... need I say more? Sam Benavides was tremendous on set. He worked very quick and knew exactly what he wanted. He was overwhelmingly distinguished when it came to collaborating with me as an actor. I am honored to be a part of The Unborn and I look forward to the future of the project. 

Growing up in Texas, I dreamed of becoming a ballerina. Ballet took me all over the country, until the performances made me realize that as much as I love dance, my true passion is acting. I graduated from the University of Southern California, where I studied film production. I have lived in Texas, New York, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, and London. Currently, I live in Los Angeles.
RE: THE UNBORN

My character, Jane, is a young, vulnerable mother-to-be who can't escape her husband Eddie's emotional and physical abuse. Playing Jane made me think about love.  How much are we willing to sacrifice and endure in the name of love?  Jane is willing to sacrifice anything to retrieve the husband she once knew and loved.  She truly believes that Eddie will change once he holds their baby his arms, and that she can endure his abuse until that moment.  This required me to tap into an emotional place I've never been in real life. Playing Jane also made me think about fear, and how fear of the one you love is a fear unlike any other.  Jane is held captive and helpless by her overpowering fear of her husband. Of course, to experience these emotions is draining and exhausting.  But I am thankful for the opportunity to play this amazing role, and for the small insight it provided into the lives of so many battered women.

RE: THE UNBORN
This was a great opportunity to play a very non assertive not confrontational character (the complete opposite of the characters I play)  when yelled at it was an eye opening experience to take the attack and instead of firing back I found myself cringing, even the way I walked and moved physically were changed. This is a character you feel maybe ashamed of because he won't stand up for himself or who he loves even though he knows the relationship she is in will kill her.
