Chatterbox was truly a great experience. Though it was a lot of hard work it paid off. I met a lot of great people, the cast and crew was amazing! It was a life changing experience. It helped me realize how much I LOVE TO ACT! I hope future projects are as great as Chatterbox!

Character:
Tina is the BFF of Clesea and Stephanie. She excels in every aspect of school, except for popularity. She is extremely computer savvy and lives strictly by the rules. Although she may be socially awkward, she is ready and willing to go to war for the people she loves.

Experience with CHATTERBOX:
Chatterbox was a truly amazing experience. I feel like my life was flipped and sent through a cyclone for the past two weeks. I have made bonds with the cast and crew that are incomparable. More than anything, it has solidified my desire to be a part of the film industry. In such an unusual environment I've never felt more at home.

Allison Bailey
as Valerie Keaton

Character:
Valerie is the most popular girl in school, she is mean to anyone who challenges her from rising to the top. Her arrogant and snobbish attitude is shown to everyone in school, but she appears to be a smart, sweet student to all her teachers.

Experience with CHATTERBOX:
My whole Chatterbox experience has been amazing. It has been a great opportunity to work with many talented people. I loved learning about how movies are made, and I met tons of experienced crew members from around the world. I have made so many friends throughout this process. The cast was so great and professional. We had a lot of fun hanging out between scenes. One of my favorite scenes in the movie was when I was telling Chelsea to forget about entering the competition in the hallway. Making this movie has been more than I could have asked for. This is something I will always remember. Acting is what I have wanted to do and I hope more opportunities in the future will be just as fun as making Chatterbox.

About Me:
I am currently a tenth grader at Aletheia Christian Academy. I have been acting since I was in 1st grade and I am very active in many theatre programs in Pensacola. I also enjoy dancing and singing. I am planning on pursuing a career in musical theatre, but I also would like to be involved in broadcast journalism.

Caleb Chomer
as Alex

Character:
Alex is one of the most popular guys in school. He is Valerie's boyfriend but is a lot nicer than she is. He is confident but not cocky, and is an overall nice guy. He starts to fall for Chelsea and throughout the movie he is trying to get to know her better.

Experience with CHATTERBOX:
Chatterbox was great experience for me as an actor. It was really interesting to see all that went in to making a movie and how many people were involved. I got to meet a lot of really cool and talented people both in cast and crew. It was a lot of fun shooting but I also had a lot of between scenes hanging out with the other cast members who I had become so close with throughout the long hours of shooting everyday. We had all become like family. My favorite scene was the library scene with Valerie because we got to improvise the whole thing and could do basically anything we wanted as it made sense for the scene which is always fun.

About Me:
I am a tenth grader at Fort Walton Beach High school. I have been acting since 2nd grade and have done a lot of shows and commercials. I also box, wrestle and play football. A career in acting would be fun, but if that doesn't work out I would like to be a General Surgeon.

Grace Tyson
as Jess

Character:
Jess is a manipulative and deceptive girl who betrays her "friends" in order to achieve personal gain.

Experience with CHATTERBOX:
Chatterbox is the first movie I have had the chance to be in, and is hopefully only the first of many. I learned so much about film acting and the making of a movie during the shooting of Chatterbox. Countless talented people were working on the film. The entire experience has been phenomenal, and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to become a better actress and gain so many friends. My favorite scene was the one in which Stephanie, Tina and Jess go into the office to change the test results. So much of Jess conversation with Ms. Valkyrie was improvised. It was very fun.

About Me:
I am currently a tenth grader and am dual enrolled at Pensacola Junior College. I perform in many theatrical productions at Pensacola Little Theatre. I love comedic improv, and I am in Pensacola's teen improvisational troupe "The Lab Rats". My dream is to pursue a career in film acting, but if that does not pan out, I plan on studying psychology and journalism.

Megan McCarthy
as Stephanie

Character:
Stephanie is Chelsea and Tina's best friend. They call her the "Gossip express". She knows everything about everybody or at least she thinks she does. She's defiantly not quiet and not to loud she's just Stephanie!

Experience with CHATTERBOX:
This was the first movie I've ever been in, and lets just say it was very exhausting and crazy experience of my life, but it was so amazing and fun. I have learned so much in just this short period of time, and I have made so many new friends with the cast and crew. Everyone had told me that the crew was going to be so harsh and mean, but they were the most fun and loving people I have ever met. I love them all and I hope to work with them in the future.

About Me:
I am 14 years old and I live in Florida and attend Choctawhatchee High School. I'm a Freshman and am actively involved in Drama, Chorus, Music Honors, and Colorguard.
