Amelia Sheikh was born in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky and lived there until she was 6, chasing fireflys in the summer and building snow-Queens (she is an avowed feminist) in the winter. However, since she could stand herself up and jibber-jabber a couple coherent words, Amelia has been telling stories. From her earliest days, she has been performing plays with her stuffed animals and Barbies and drawing and writing stories, all the while recruiting friends and strangers alike to fill her audiences at home, park and shopping mall play area.

She has been acting professionally for over a year and has shown intense dedication to mastering her chosen art. She she recently earned a guest-star spot on an episode of the Nickelodeon series Game Shakers and she is incredibly excited to take the next step in her career with the exciting role of Evie. She is chomping at the bit to tackle this incredible opportunity!

HILARY BARRAFORD has appeared in, produced and written numerous projects for film, television and digital. HILARY plays suburban snoop Jessica in Megan Freels’ campy horror film THE ICE CREAM TRUCK coming in 2017 and down-to-earth sidekick Sam in the upcoming digital comedy series RILEY. Other film highlights include Oscar-nominated writer-director John Sayles’ drama GO FOR SISTERS, divorce dramedy THE WAY WE TALK and drama INTERWOVEN, starring Oscar-winner Mo'nique. HILARY made her small-screen debut on Showtime’s UNITED STATES OF TARA. She has also written, produced and appeared in several comedy shorts, including WHAT’S UP WITH YOUR FRIEND?, REUNION and LEGITIMATE. She continues to revel in roles on both sides of the camera, and has several projects in development. Born in Boston, she received a B.A. in English from Williams College in Massachusetts. Hilary currently lives in LA. For more info: www.hilarybarraford.com.

Andy Steinhauer is a theatre nerd from Colorado who loves acting in Shakespeare.  He and his wife moved to LA about five years ago so he could continue his career.  His background includes a lot of musical, improv and comedy and taking those broad genres and choices and building them into something usable for the camera has been really rewarding.  Andy is the quintessential "Dad Next Door" and we love him for this role!

Zahra Ingersoll is a thirty-four-year-old actress from Temecula, CA.  She began acting in 2014. I has performed at several Halloween conventions as well as performed at Insomniacs Escape Psycho Circus Rave the past 2 years (2016-2017).
