Film Shoots, Series Shoots, and Commercial Shoots!

Huntington Theatre Company

Side entrance to the Huntington Theatre Company, where Luisa has been invited to attend two auditions this spring. The Huntington received the 2013 Tony award for Regional Theatre.

This year Luisa has turned her focus to TV/Film work, and this summer has been no exception. Two weeks ago, she filmed a principal role in the upcoming TV movie Blutsbrüder, which, as you might have guessed, is completely in German. Luisa portrays Kathie Stern, the longtime friend of the film’s protagonist, Jessica Ashburn. Directed by Helmut Metzger, the Van Wormer International production stars Birte Hanusrichter and René Ifrah and will air via ZDF, home of the popular Wetten, Dass…? series, for those of you up on your German TV. Local casting was done by Boston Casting.

Also in film news, this week Luisa is shooting a principal role in the SAG short Mail.Man. Luisa portrays Aunt Sarah, whose nephew, Frank, portrayed by Bradley Van Dussen, is the protagonist of the film (Luisa appears in a flashback with Frank’s younger self). The piece is directed by William Aydelott and produced by David Graves; local casting was done by Courtland Jones.

This month Luisa was also cast in two series, which she’ll be filming next month. In Lillian Wald: Angel on Henry Street, a Sagacity production, Luisa portrays the supporting character of Rosa Segall, the temperamental wife of aristocrat James Segall, portrayed by Steve Provizer. In Family Problems, an Angelwood Pictures production, Luisa portrays a lead character of Catherine Hamblin, the pushy wife of a minister portrayed by Tony Wright. Clips from both series will ultimately be incorporated into Luisa’s forthcoming acting reel.

In other news, Luisa will be portraying a supporting role in a commercial tomorrow for the Connecticut State Lottery, a Redtree Productions project cast by Boston Casting. She also recently auditioned for the Huntington Theatre Company‘s 2015 production of Come Back, Little Sheba (Luisa’s second audition this year for the Tony-award-winning company), modeled for Hasbro, and performed her first-ever stand-up routine at ImprovBoston. You may view video from that performance here.

Finally, as of this spring, Luisa is SAG-eligible. She received this distinction as a result of completing a principal role in her first SAG project this April.
