Cast Bios (alphabetical order)

  1. Andreas Anderson (Root) Andreas born in Hamburg, Germany and studied Physics in college (even though he'd always had a passion for acting). At the age of 26, he had enough money saved to start a new life  and decided to move to LA and become an actor. He has been studying at Theatre Group Studio in West Los Angeles for 5 years now, and has appeared in several plays and films as well.

 

 


  1. Geneviere Anderson (Dolly Malone) Geneviere is a chameleon of an actor - she can play a sassy vamp or a girl next door with the same apparent ease. That comes from being a seasoned actor, who has ten movies and TV shows under her belt. Along with “Creature”, Gen has two other movies coming out soon as well – “Sugarboxx” and “The Adventures of Umbweki”. Geneviere is also a master cheff, who has travelled the world extensively to find exotic recipes, which she then modifies to fit today's healthy lifestyles. Gen recently put these skills to use in her own cooking show “Gen’s Guiltless Gourmet”, now playing around the world. At the set Geneviere mesmerized us by her professionalism. The editor had the easiest task putting her scenes together, since she always repeated her gestures precisely the same way take after take.


RSON

  1. Melissa Anderson (Latisha) MELISSA ANDERSON  is a actor from Southern California of Jamaican descent. By the age of eight, she had been cast in her first school play, igniting a passion that led her to study English and Theatre at the University of Southern California. Since 2006, she has studied Method acting with Lorinne Vozoff at the Theatre Group Studio and also is an active member of the Towne Street Theatre company. Creature of Habit marks her feature film debut. Between acting and her newest role as a mother, Melissa runs The Hip Green Mama, helping other parents create eco-friendly, sustainable homes.

    1.  Taisto

    2. TAISTO LISKI (Mr. Reddenbocker) Taisto is the incarnation of the American dream. The Finnish native brought his family to the U.S. back in 1967, and ffter a successful career, he  recently retired in Signal Hill, California with his wife and business partner, Helka. In Creature of Habit, Taisto was able to showcase his flying and driving skills plus his humorous outlook on life. Taisto hosted us graciously in Idyllwild at his vacation house, a key location for the movie.  We added his jovial persona on the screen as well and he did fine without any formal training as an actor.
