Well we had the very first table read through with the cast of ‘HICCUPS’. And I have to say, it was great. It was so cool to finally hear the words that have just been on the page being read by actual actors in actual voices. Up until recently the only people that I knew for sure were going to be in this thing were myself and Nancy. We had our picks for the rest of the cast, but had to wait awhile until we could get them approved and deals finalized and all that other fun legal/business shmutz that always accompanies the creative stuff. But it’s all done now. We were allowed to cast the actors we wanted, and after having heard them read the parts, I could not be happier or more excited. They’re an incredibly talented bunch. We just may have a hit on our hands. Uh oh… hope I didn’t hex anything.
So the main cast of Hiccups is as follows:
Millie Upton (children’s author/borderline lunatic) – Nancy Robertson
Stan Dirko (life coach/borderline putz)– Brent Butt
Joyce Haddison (Publisher, Haddison House) – Laura Soltis
Taylor Rymes (Millie’s literary agent) – David Ingram
Crystal Braywood (Haddison House receptionist) – Emily Perkins
Anna Dirko (Gardener/Stan’s wife) – Paula Rivera
Today was our last day of prep before we go to camera on Monday. I’m really looking forward to it. So here we go – WISH US LUCK!
