DAY 81: Actress Stacey Sargeant & Actress Amy Lynn Stewart
Mentor Project double-take!!
You may recognize Stacey Sargeant from last year's Mentor Project season - she starred in Natalia Naman's LAWNPEOPLE. You might have caught her in these "little known" (ha!) pieces as well: RENT, THE COLOR PURPLE, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM and even toured nationally in LEGALLY BLONDE (just to highlight a few). Not to mention, she's appeared in hit shows like THE BLACKLIST, GLEE, and GOSSIP GIRL. Stacey's debut short film - a documentary about the physical and psychological dangers in the world of ballet for young girls - THOUGH I'M NOT PERFECT took the 2012 Honolulu Film Award for Best Educational Award.
And if you don't recognize Amy from Mentor Project -- that's only because THE RAGGED CLAWS hasn't hit the stage...YET. On APRIL 2ND Amy made her CLT debut in this year's final Mentor Project play by Lina Patel. But, like Stacey, she's already a seasoned performer with credits from greats like CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, ELECTRA and RICHARD III. She is an alum of UNC Chapel Hill, UC San Diego and The Public's Shakespeare Lab... and recently was honored with an Action on Film Award for her performance in the short film MAMA.
Check out their happy birthday video (double-awesome!!) from the Mentor Project launch party last December.
