All Saints’ Graduate and HotHouse Company member Ryan Panizza lands role in Australian Feature Film.
Last year I was fortunate enough to have been cast in an upcoming Australian feature film, ‘Love you twice’ written and directed by John V. Soto (Reckoning, Needle). The film concerns a particle physicist played by the talented Jacqueline McKenzie (The 4400’s, The Water Diviner, Romper Stomper) still grieving over the death of her husband, who uses a revolutionary machine to bring him back, with dire consequences for her family.
Also starring Myles Pollard (McLeod’s daughters, X-men origins: Wolverine), Hayley McElhinney (The Babadook), and Shannon Berry (Logie nominated actress for Offspring).
My character, Jake Chandler, plays the son of the protagonist and also is dealing with the grief of his father just recently passing.
The film was a real learning experience for me and was certainty a quick introduction into the industry. Within the first day of being on set we had immediately constructed an authentic family both on and off camera, making the performance that much more real and genuine.
I would like to thank the College for its support and I’ll see you soon in the HotHouse Co.
The film is set to be released in the later part of 2017.
