ONE MOMENT WITH SHANNON MURRAY AND YOU KNOW YOUR CHARACTER IS IN TALENTED AND DEDICATED HANDS. WHEN I CAST A ROLE, I LOOK FOR SOMEONE THAT LISTENS TO MY STORIES AND UNDERSTANDS MY INTENTIONS FOR WHAT OUR AUDIENCE SHOULD BE EXPERIENCING THROUGH THE ROLE. SHE IS NOT ONLY AN AMAZING LISTENER BUT HAS THE TALENT TO FULLY EMBODY THE ROLE, BOTH PHYSICALLY AND TO HER SOUL, A LAYER THAT I VALUE VERY MUCH WHEN CASTING HER. HER OPEN MIND AND DEDICATION BRING LIFE AND ACTION FROM THE SCRIPTED WORDS THROUGH THE CAMERA TO YOUR HEART. RESULTING IN A STRONG AND REAL PERFORMANCE, EVERY TAKE.
