Annie is played by Alexandra Clayton. I've known Alexandra for a couple years now because we screened a web series she co-created at our monthly screening series IndieWorks. But I'm really happy that we're now becoming friends and getting to collaborate as a result of this project. She's such a lovely person and a versatile actor. Annie, being the only character in their 20s that we were casting for, led to the most actor submissions of all the roles. We had hundreds, possibly over a thousand submit just for her. But Alexandra stood out right away; not just because she showed up to her audition with a fake baby bump, but because she brought such sincerity to the role right from the start. Watch what Alexandra has to say about her character and the film.
More about Annie:
Annie, the youngest of the bunch, is on maternity leave from her work as a teacher and on the verge of having her first baby with her husband, Paul. Though arguably the most level-headed of the family, she has been known to go to great lengths to keep everyone smiling.
