Hollywood Magic Productions
Mike Shu, Director
An author of bestselling stories is inspired by his nightmares. But as the
stories become true, he begins to question the source of his inspiration.
I would play FBI Agent Darla Seager who with her partner Agent Denton,
investigate the inexplicable, very much like the team of 'Scully and Mulder' in
the X-files. My character Seager is like Mulder's as she is the one who
'believes'. I really enjoy playing women in official roles. Women in control and
project never got the green light, all I have is my audition piece which I was
very thankful to obtain from Mike. In general, when I am asked to bring a
monologue, I select from my repertoire, one that reflects the character I am
reading for. When I auditioned for the role of Agent Seager, I selected "Paula",
a woman whose strength and success has been fueled by her fear of becoming a
weak woman like her mother. Warning: It contains profanity. Click on my
image on the left to view. TRT: 3mins 17secs.

strong-willed and independent woman. Always focused on achieving her personal
goals, Kobane led a fairly solitary life until she met, fell in love and married
John Lewis, an attorney in the Public Defender's office. She developed a deep
love and a profound attachment to him and was devastated when years later John
decides to end their relationship as it was getting in the way of his
professional aspirations. Unable to deal with the break up, Kobane believes
finding the serial killer is the only way to end her pain.

when I brought Rivka to a class performance, I evolved her into a chain and
leather drug addict (right).
Saffron Productions, England
Keith Eastwell, Director

half-an-hour on the internet." Janus is a story of misunderstandings. David and
Chandra find their visit to the countryside shattered by events that leave them
fleeing for their lives. Seeking the help of Simon they quickly discover all is
