Dear Stephan, I know that Michael has thanked you endlessly for your work on this project. I just wanted to personally reiterate my professional gratitude to your development and execution ofthe Felicia character. Your commitment to the character and the project rose the expectations ofthe actors and crew around you. Thank you. Felicia was not well defined when we put theblueprint in your hands. Ned had done research about where Felicia was coming from, but all of us realized that without a great actor putting more work into the role Felicia could have very easilybecome a cliched and exploited subplot. We saw actors in the audition who first thought to takethe role in that direction. But you found the beauty in this character, you found the heart. I hopeyou are as proud of the character you created as we are. Thanks, Sam
And just so you know, Felicia, in my writer's role on the sidelines, I too have been quietly amazed at the quality and passion of your performance. She is much more now than she started out to be. We all look forward to working with you and/or Stephan again! Ned
"...a superbly gifted cast... mesmerizing, breathtaking, and haunting...Guido is played by the autocratic and thoroughly riveting Stephan Smith Collins."
