Was great to finally have another video conference meeting with three out of four Devil’s Five partners (George was the only one who couldn’t make it) last night. I believe it was the first meeting since May. A lot has gone on since then since then. It sounds like things are coming together for Thad to make his episode “The Devil You Know” and Edwin to direct his segment “Choke.” It sounds as though both will go before the camera the first part of October. “Stash” is in the post-production phase as Robert Figueira has begun his initial edit. All of this is exciting developments to say the least.
Terry has cast Tina Surabian to play the supporting role of “Mia” for “Stash.” Tina is originally from Massachusetts, where she started dancing at the age of 3. Trained in ballet, tap, modern jazz and belly dancing, Tina now teaches belly dancing in East Hampton, NY. Her love of acting came naturally , as dancing is a similar art form where one becomes somebody else as they perform a story. Tina is a graduate of the John Robert Powers Finishing School. She has taken acting classes with Steve Hamilton and Emma Walton of the Bay Street Theatre. Trained privately with acting coach D. Candis Paule. Studied with Anthony Mannino of NYC and is a graduate of the Weist-Barron School for Film and Television in New York City . Tina has done a vast amount of extra work on films and in television, PSAs, and under fives. Her other passions in life are Yoga & cooking. Being of Armenian & French decent, this also came naturally. Tina is totally thrilled to be part of this project. Terry says, “Tina made an impact the moment I saw her, which was a prerequisite for the character. I wanted a woman with curves that could turn heads and she certainly does that. Combine this with her unmatched enthusiasm to play the part, there was no way I could deny her the opportunity.”
