I’d like to thank everyone who submitted the audition video.
All of them are quite impressive.
And it’s amazing that I actually got anyone willing to read the part of Mara in the first place. When I wrote the script I was angry at a girl who’s name is not Mara but happens to be a lot like her. At times I feel like I painted her a little too vibrant but all the positive feedback just goes to show that it creates a strong character. I think we should all thank the real “Mara” for the inspiration. You’ll always hold a special place in my heart.
Anyways, I can only select one actress. There’s only one Mara.
