The Cast Comment on I OUGHT TO BE IN PICTURES - Opening July 16

Left: Hayley Ferguson comments on her role as Libby: "Once I began to learn the role, I came to really connect with Libby. She may have naively moved to Hollywood to gamble on success on the silver screen, but I feel her real gamble was in trying to reconcile long differences and being brave enough to look in long abandoned closets."
Right: Vanessa Taylor comments on her role as Steffy: "This is perhaps Simon's most autobiographical work, as Herb, like the playwright, is a Hollywood screen-writer. I know also that Simon has daughters and was married several times. For me, playing Steffy was not dissimilar to playing an arbitrator to the fantastic emotional highs and lows experienced by Herb and Libby."
