I am so happy with my last work adventure, the CBS show Limitless, and I have to say thank you to the two men in the picture to the left who are the kindest, most humble, talented and real people I have ever worked with!
Peter Werner is an Oscar winning directing genius!!! Working with him was one of the most memorable times in my career. He is the most humble, warm, grounded and generous man who makes everything so smooth, professional, and calm. He makes you feel safe allowing you to open up and flourish as an actor. I was able to open my heart and share it fully! I cannot say much about my character before it airs but her name is Sophia and she loves watching TV! It was a great pleasure to work with the writer/co-executive producer of this particular episode, Taylor Elmore, who has some of the wittiest and funniest lines. It was delightful to see them bring my character to life.
It was equal fun and pleasure to work with the wonderful stars of the show, Jake McDorman, Christina Vidal and Maggie Reed.
Special thanks to the two of the best casting directors Ross Meyerson and Kim Krakauer for trusting me and casting me for this role!
While on the set working with the master Peter Werner he said something I will never forget - he said "You remind me of truly fine actors the finest people and why I love to direct"! This is one of the reasons why I do this art as well. To meet and work with great talents. I am so happy about this job and can't wait to see what else 2016 has in store for me!
My episode is 15, airing February 16th.
I am also so happy to share with you that I was nominated for a Best Actress Award at the 2015 Blow-Up Chicago International Arthouse Film Festival For our film Let Them Have Their Way!

2015 was very exciting! I started it off with the filming of the film PRICE FOR FREEDOM, Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas; Nixon; The Firm); Navid Negahban ("Homeland"), Sally Kirkland (Academy Award nominee; Anna; JFK); Ken Davitian ( Borat, The Artist)). The movie is based on the book & true story of Dr. Marc Benhuri, an Iranian Jew who worked to counter oppression after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Here is a link to the Official trailer: PRICE FOR FREEDOM
On the set of PRICE FOR FREEDOM
Also, PRICE FOR FREEDOM, was profiled on the LARRY KING SHOW. The film will has it's premier as an Opening Night movie at the Hoboken International Film Festival on May 29th at the Paramount Theater in Middletown, NY. Some clips from the Larry King's show you can see here: PRICE FOR FREEDOM on Larry King.
In the past year one of the most exciting projects Ii did was starring opposite Ellen Burstyn in the Actors Studio Production of THE CHERRY ORCHARD by Anton Chekhov, directed by John Gould Rubin. We had a thrilling run with raving audiences.
On the set of SEX & DRUGS AND ROCK & ROLL
I am also excited to share with you that I have a fun and sexy role in the new FOX comedy series SEX & DRUGS AND ROCK & ROLL created by and starting Denis Leary! You can see me in Episode 9 called: "Take My Picture by The Pool"! Yey! The coolest of all is that it will air on my birthday September 10th at 10 pm!
I also featured in the independent film "DREAMS OF THE LAST BUTTERFLIES" which is currently part of the selection of 27 international film festivals so far and won 5 awards.
The latest project I am working on "Scars of Passion", a wonderful production of George Leconte Creations, is coming out this December.
There is so much more happening in the following months that I am eager to share with you, and I hope you will come back soon to check up on my little space here.
