We’re very excited to announce three of the people who have joined the cast of Delantare! They’ll all be playing different roles in each of the time periods of the story. Without any further ado, here they are!
Laura Seabrook is a talented actress with a contagious zest for life and a passion to impact and inspire the world through media! She is also an accomplished equestrian, pianist and singer. She has appeared in such films as In His Steps, Inner Quest, and Stolen Path.
Laura will be portraying three characters across time in Delantare:
Samantha Starr, a wealthy heiress of a large ranch outside the Old West town of Adobe Flats. Haughty and entitled, she enjoys the power that her wealth gives her, and wants to use it to force the town into her own ideal image as a means of dealing with grievous past.
Summer, a homeless girl in present day Adobe Flats, doing anything she can to survive, even working with a street gang. Hardened by life, she is highly suspicious of anyone’s motives and intentions. She knows how to use her situation to manipulate people to get her what she wants.
Overseer Sheina, a member of the ruling elite in a distant future. Puts on a facade of being selfish and cruel to blend in with her peers, but is secretly kind and benevolent to those in need, though not always discerning about who really needs help.
Henry Frost III hails from Michigan. His aspiration and zeal has made him a formidable actor, a desire he feels will give him a sense of fulfillment in his life. He has appeared in such films as Transformers 3, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Real Steel.
Henry will be portraying three characters across time in Delantare:
Jake, a shady drifter who finds himself brought to the Old West town of Adobe Flats. Grim, intelligent, and with a code of honor all his own. On the run from his past, he finds refuge in Adobe Flats and immediately gets on the bad side of some very powerful people.
Jekrth “Jek” Ta’an, a mysterious and somewhat unstable man that’s convinced he doesn’t belong in this world. He is obsessed with finding and reuniting his friends, even if he has to tear apart this universe to do it.
John, in the distant future, a former security guard for Overseer Sheina’s political rival. Acts as a liaison for an outlawed group, helping members escape the city everyone is forced to live in.
Juli Tapken is a multi-award winning actress dedicated and driven to bringing her characters to life in an honest and relatable way while being a strong asset on set. She has appeared in such films as Providence, Mission Improbable, and Godsend.
Juli will be portraying three characters across time in Delantare:
Nora Maxwell, widow of Old West Adobe Flats’ former pastor. No children of her own, but is viewed as a beloved mother figure by the people of the town, holding the respect of even the roughest citizens.
Nicole, a waitress at a small diner in the present day. While not naive by any means, she prefers to err on the side of being trusting and generous, even when the recipient doesn’t warrant it.
Nat, Overseer Sheina’s personal assistant. Timid and easily manipulated, she’s ignorant of her boss’s benevolent side as she often bears the brunt of Sheina’s harsh facade.
