The British made paranormal thriller ‘The Casebook of Eddie Brewer’ produced by Rookery Pictures, in which I play Glenda Blakewell, the distraught mother of a disturbed 8 year old girl has been released in America. After a successful release in the UK this is really exciting news! This independent feature film has already won 5 prestigious festival awards in the UK and America. Let’s hope the US really embrace the film …. I was also immensely proud to act alongside my real daughter Erin, in her feature film debut.

A remarkable coincidence! I will miss playing Rachel and the lovely members of the team very much.
