Dreamotion Studios would like to state, the actors who auditioned for the role of 'Steven' during the call-back phase were absolutely incredible. So you can imagine just how highly we think of the actor who won the role! We are thrilled to announce, Chris Cimperman will play 'Steven' in the 'From Under The Bridge' film project. Chris is an amazing talent. He is a fluid and natural actor with the ability to apply unique character traits to a role. This was demonstrated both in his self-tape audition AND the call-backs. Chris simply knocked this one 'out of the park' and we had to cast him.
Appearance is also very important here (yes... Chris is easy on the eyes... but that's not what I mean!) There is a subplot where we are invited to observe the relationship between 'Kyle' and his older brother, 'Steven'. And in order to bolster the effects of the scene, and give added strength to the underlying message, a resemblance between the actors was desired. I believe we have found this is Luc ('Kyle') and Chris ('Steve').
This scene is certainly one of my favorites, so I am absolutely ecstatic to know such a brilliant actor will be bringing it to life.
Congratulations and welcome to the cast, Chris! Don't miss your flight and if you're bored on the plane... just practice those slaps!
We would also like to take a moment to praise Joey Heyworth... the 7 other actors who made it to the call-backs... and all actors who submitted for this role. We feel extremely lucky to have seen so many talented actors while casting for this role.. Thank you!
