TESTIMONIALS


"Kristen is a wonderful actress to work with. She brought so much life to not only the character but the set as well. Not only does she have a great range of emotion but she is also very easy to direct. She got along with everyone on set and even stayed after wrapping to lend a hand wherever was needed. She's a joy to work with on set and her passion and work ethic shine through effortlessly!"

 

-Zerelda Rodriguez, Director/Writer (Ally & Viv)


"Kristen is an actress of great vulnerability and passion. She brings to each process a sensibility that is beyond her years and a "take no prisoners" ethic. She is just the bomb!

-Dell Howlett, Director & Choreographer


"Kristen's performance as Audra was flawless. She perfectly captured the emotion behind every line,but still spoke clear enough to let listeners catch every word. I could not have asked for a better person to bring this character to life and hope to work with her again."

-Shannon Messenger, author of Let the Sky Fall Let the Storm Break
