Oh, the magic of the internet...
I love Internet Movie Data Base. I decided to do a little, where are they now for the actors that appeared in my film. One of the things I hung my hat on when I first showed Wrong Turn in my film class was that I had casted, by far, the hottest actress for my lead. Frank Miller's Sin City story required nothing short of a drop dead beauty. And Kristi Clainos was that.
Now it's a cliche that everyone in Hollywood is an actor-slash- (waiter, bartender, production assistant, street performer, you name it.) But until you're there in LA, it's hard to get a sense of what that really means. As it turns out, many aspiring actors and actresses are willing to do free film work so long as you provide them with a copy of the finished product and give them a credit. So casting my movie was actually a lot easier than I thought.
Kristi, who I cast as Deliah in my film, was a real trooper. She actually was shooting a nylon stockings commercial the following day, but was still willing to roll around on the ground in a somewhat physical shoot. So, I'm definitely happy to see that she's managed to make a career out of acting. IMDB tells me that she went on to do an episode of Showtimes' Sleeper Cell, Cold Case, CSI, Las Vegas, and Desperate Housewives, among other things. So go Kristi.
