Julia Witschger
 
"Lacie"
       
 

A lifelong resident of Fallbrook, Julia Witschger has loved singing and dancing from the very young age of four, but never thought of pursuing these talents on a serious level until just recently, finding success quickly. Along with taking choir classes in high school and faithfully attending her church choir, where she has occasionally stepped in to lead the congregation in song, Julia has appeared in several local musicals and is currently taking top-of-the-line singing lessons with SLS, a vocal method used by many famous vocalists, including Josh Groban.

Julia has also recently shown a growing interest in the performing arts and has found success as an actress as well as a singer. Along with joining the Fallbrook Film Factory and being cast as the lead in the film, “My Necklace, Myself,” Julia will appear in “The Importance of Being Ernest” at her high school this fall and will showcase her singing and dancing skills in the school’s Spring musical.

In her downtime, Julia finds refuge in design. She has spent countless hours (with Josh Groban spinning endlessly in the CD player) beading jewelry and sewing. Her achievements include rosary bracelets, which have been added to the shelves of Mission San Antonio de Pala’s gift shop, and the recreation of period costumes from the Medieval and Regency eras.

Whether it’s singing, acting, or beading jewelry, Julia stays busy crafting her arts, her mind and talent. And, having been approached to sing for a jazz band at an exclusive club in San Marcos, California, Julia has already begun to see the fruits of her hard work and dedication come to life.

Christiana Minga
"Serrin"
     

Christiana has been involved in some form of the arts since she was a small child. Her first foray into theater was as a mouse in The Nutcracker Ballet at the age of four. It was also at this tender age that her father, a seasoned stuntman, brought her on location of the television show Baywatch. It was there that Christiana became enthralled with acting and performance. She informed her parents that she wanted to be an actress and soon thereafter, began performing in local theater. She would go on to perform in more than a dozen plays, the highlight having been landing the lead role as Christmas Past in classic Christmas play, Scrooge. By the time Christiana was 12, she landed agents in both San Diego and Los Angeles and began booking parts through both agencies, while also taking acting classes and becoming a cheerleader, in which she lettered as a sophomore in high school.

Now a junior in high school, Christiana stays busy beyond mere acting. Along with being a member of her schools performance dance team, Christiana is also a member of the ASB, an assistant coach for the freshman cheerleading squad and president of the French Club. “My Necklace, Myself” is Christiana’s first time working under the direction of writer/director Bryan Caron and second time co-starring in a Fallbrook Film Factory production, the first being Josh, which is currently being submitted to film festivals.

Derek Majewski
 
"Jeremy"
       
  Derek has always loved being the center of attention, even if it was only in front of his grandma's video camera! His performing experiences began when he was in christian preschool, and they have grown from there. One of his biggest performing influences is his mother, a successful animal educator and trainer who's productions have traveled across the United States. Among his proudest moments is being a two-time special guest on the hit late night show Jimmy Kimmel Live.
 
Now, as a high school junior, he is Associated Student Body President, member of the top notch Fallbrook Highschool Madrigals, Rugby Club President, AP Student, and avid equestrian. When the idea of being in a movie was presented to him, he was interested, but unsure of how he could fit into this new realm of personalities. Little did he know that he would become the last piece of the puzzle for this production. He is thrilled to be taking part in the movie My Necklace, Myself as Jeremy. This opportunity has presented him with many new experiences, and he knows that it will be something that he remembers forever.

J.G.
Franklin
  "Gary"
                 
 

Deanna Lynn Walsh was born in San Diego, California and attended high school at Mt. Carmel. It was there that she first took Speech and Drama, and found that she was blessed with a natural ability to act and speak in front of people. After high school, however, she pursued her first love of working with Thoroughbred racehorses until the responsibility of raising a family influenced her to rethink her career path. As a result of this, she rediscovered her love for acting, which she now actively pursues.

–Biography by Wendy Lyn Cook

   

J.G. Franklin is a character actor. He has been working since October of 2006 as such and, fortunately, has enjoyed a high level of success, having completed 20 roles in 18 months. In addition to getting his acting career off the ground, he hopes to get his musical career "jump-started" as well. To this end, he is currently working, under the nickname "Gunner", with his friend, and former band mate, Jon Jump, a fantastic guitarist and songwriter in his own right, to promote GUNNER JUMP. They have released their debut EP "TAKING CHANCES," available on Cdbaby.com and Indieheaven.com.

Valencia
  "Heather Jackson "
                 
  A native of San Diego, Norman was born to an Okinawan mother and American military father. Norman fell in love with movies at an early age and has been intrigued ever since. Going through life he held numerous professions and always felt something was missing. He made the bold decision to take acting seriously 3 years ago and to find out who he was and let his creativity flow. The acting bug bit and he hasn't looked back. Since then he has been in numerous national tv shows, independant films, commercials, and student films (one of which his son Norman Jr. was a featured character). Norman has offered his free time and worked with University of California San Diego Film Dept staff and film students and continues to happily do so to this day. He strives to bring an honesty into his characters and lives through them. So much that if a character needed an accent or didn't have one, Norman would create one, sometimes reminded by friends that he would speak through a created character days after a shoot. Character building is a strong point for Norman and he enjoys it immensely. Its an outlet that brings out the best in his artistic abilities. Norman is always looking for the next adventure and wherever that road may lead him to...     Bio Coming Soon
