Cassie is played by Sarah Haruko. Since we've only shot the first scene of the film (and can't shoot the rest without raising our full goal), I haven't yet worked with Sarah. But I'm so impressed with her as a person and as an actor. We knew we wanted to cast her from her reel and video submission alone; an in-person callback was merely to confirm chemistry with Ben (playing Burgh). She's an excellent, versatile actor; and based on even just our table read of the script we can see she brings so much heart and depth to the often overzealous Cassie. I can't wait to work with Sarah and see her bring Cassie to life on screen. Watch what she has to say about her character and the film.
More about Cassie:
Cassie is a winner through-and-through. She's currently running for City Council, and getting pretty tired of keeping her relationship with Burgh a secret from his sometimes overbearing family.
