Film Work

The transition from stage to film has been seamless for Debra.  She was recently cast as the lead character Polly for the science fiction film, "The Holdout". The Holdout is a bittersweet story about a hopeful romantic who repeats the same patterns of behavior over several lifetimes, in attempts to find his true love. Debra plays the role of an otherworldly guardian who follows the holdout from one lifetime to the next in an attempt to guide his destiny.  

Watching Debra on film you know that she’ll be driving the plot. You have the faith that she’s taking you in the right direction.
