A while back, I filmed a movie called Angels in Stardust. It’s a story about A teenage girl named Vallie Sue (played by the AJ Michalka) living in a small town whose imaginary friend, The Cowboy (played by Billy Burke), helps her realize her potential and place in her trailer park community.
I love coming of age stories and I think that this film has a very unique take on it. I was drawn to the idea of playing Tammy, the single mother searching for Mr. Right. She has a hard time with motherhood and her search for love, and she often messes up when trying to find a balance between the two. She is a complex character and I loved the challenge of playing a role I had never done before.
I also like that Vallie Sue is dreaming of a better life for herself. It’s a complicated relationship, but one filled with love nonetheless.
