Kris Paul as Winnifred Mather
The part of Winnifred will be my debut film performance. Normally I work from my home office doing software and web development, but acting has always been something I’ve wanted to try. When the director, Heather, explained the plot to me I knew it would be a powerful film. Heather saw something in me that would be right for the part, and I was drawn to the story because it deals with a lot of difficult topics that need to be looked at more closely on screen and off.
