KEWDALE ACTOR MAKES THE CUT
LOCAL Kewdale-based actor Tanya Jade will feature in a film called The Meet Cut, which was selected for the Revelations Film Festival.
The Meet Cut will air as part of the Australian Revelations Screening this month.
Jade said she also felt privileged to have it precede Candy, which was one of Heath Ledger’s memorable roles in Australian film.
The Meet Cut is a short romantic comedy, written and directed by James Pontifex, about a man playing with the idea of manufactured serendipity to get the attention of his dream girl Danielle, played by Tanya.
The short film had its screening debut last year at the highly regarded St Kilda Film Festival in Melbourne, where Jade walked the red carpet and had positive feedback about the film.
“It was such a great experience and somewhat nerve wracking because it was the first time I’d seen a film of mine on the big screen,” Jade said.
“The more I study film and other actors, the more respect and admiration I develop for Heath Ledger as an actor.”
Heath’s father Kim Ledger will present the film at the screening on Monday, February 23. The screening will be held at Backlot Studios in West Perth at 6.30pm.
