Director Terry R. Wickham has cast New York Actress Janice Silver for the role of “Betty” for the upcoming film Whatever It Takes. Wickham says, “I really liked Janice’s audition. She was sweet and feisty, which are the qualities we are looking for in this character. She reminds me in some ways of Hollywood actress Lin Shaye (Insidious, A Nightmare on Elm Street) in the way she carries herself and has such sharp wit. She’s definitely going to be an positive attribute for the film and I can’t wait to work with her.”
Janice Silver appeared in The Derelict, a movie that was selected for the New York Short Film Festival. Her diverse roles include a nun in the feature film Little Sister, a mature prostitute in an Off Broadway production and a prisoner in Orange is the New Black. TV appearances include Pandora’s Box as well as A Crime to Remember for the ID Discovery Channel. She can be seen in Closure, an upcoming independent film this spring. Janice occasionally performs at cabarets around Manhattan. When not acting or singing she enjoys playing the piano. She lives in NYC with her husband Andy and their 2 Maine Coon cats.
