It's with great sadness that today I have to announce that we've parted ways with the lovely and talented Trin Miller, who had been slated to play Sarah in Reunion.
Two days ago (Tuesday, August 2nd) we discovered an issue that had arisen from Trin's involvement in another feature, which she's wrapping up this week (we start shooting tomorrow, August 5th). After trying to work around the problem that evening, and then sleeping on it that night, I discussed the matter with my producer, our director of photography, and our assistant director, and ultimately made the call to make a change.
It was a very difficult decision to make and the ultimate responsibility for that decision is all mine. We called Trin yesterday afternoon and it was a call we dreaded making all day, but as hard as it may have been for us to make, I have no doubt it was even harder for Trin to hear. She has been a passionate supporter of Reunion -- talking us up to her many friends on Facebook and to her many followers on Twitter (@trinmiller -- you should totally follow her).
We can state, unequivocally, that we are all Trin Miller fans. We were thrilled to have her in the cast (I've worked with her before and so has our assistant director, Jared Hagen) and had been excited to get her on set. She's a delight as an actor, and an even bigger delight as a person (she bakes brownies for the crew!). We wish her nothing but the best and I hope I get to work with her on many projects in the future -- and you shouldn't hesitate to consider her for one of yours.
Take a moment please and let Trin know you'll miss her in Reunion. I know we all will.
Be seeing you...
