SEARCH DOG'S RAVEN
Allex Michael as Mikella
< Allex Michael as Mikella, with her search dog Ebbey.
When your lead actress drops out at the last minute, what does a first time director do? Well if you're Allex Michael, you take over the role yourself.
Allex Michael: "It took us over a year, to get a semi well known actress interested in the part. So when she backed out, because the role was too strenuous, I just couldn't go through that again.
And the last thing I needed was to take over the lead role. This is my first film and I was already writing, directing and co-producing. But it would have been much, much worse to see the project shelved.
In retrospect, I don't blame her for backing out of the project. The role WAS too strenuous. Months of hiking through the snow and ice. I also doubt she was strong enough to handle the dog. Ebbey, who plays the search dog, is incredibly strong. You get her out in the forest and she's literally tracking every critter within a ten mile radius.

When Ebbey finds the squirrel or hare, about the only thing that stops her is the weight of your dragging carcass. So, thank God the other actress backed out. The last thing any film needs is to have one of the cast or crew badly injured."

Allex Michael: "My first job as an extra, was in a film called The Hired Heart. The money guy kept watching me and eventually pulled me off to the side. (Called Les the money guy, by one of the other extras, I think he was a producer.) Figuring I was about to be fired, or see a casting couch, I was very surprised when he remarked that I have appeal and should pursue acting. That's all he said, but those few words certainly made an impression on a first time extra.
Working on The Hired Heart was just great. They had me..." read more
