This was Abbey’s first work on a Starfield Studios production…
“Abbey was a real pro,” said Douglas. She accepted direction incredibly well and found the emotional core of the character quickly during some difficult scenes. And she was totally at ease during the love scenes… I think I was a lot more nervous than her about it,” Douglas joked, “but she’s also a well trained model as well an actress, so she’s very relaxed about her body and the physical aspect of that type of scene.”
“Never had I experienced such a range of emotions in such a short amount of time as an actress” Abbey told Douglas after filming the final scene on day three of the project. Abbey definitely had an emotional roller coaster ride, which is pretty evident when you see the film.
“I would absolutely work with Abbey again as an actress,” remarked Pritchard. “I think she really shocked people- even some of her closest peers – when they saw the depth of her range. I think that’s the advantage as a director when you bring in someone new to you. You can spot things in them during the process that others might overlook. I’m looking forward to working with Abbey soon- hoepfully on some feature projects in the near future… Hmmm. Maybe on a little film called The Manslaughter which is in pre-production right now.”
