“Deidra Kathleen has proven to be an amazing actress in all the times I have worked with her. She’s a very reliable person to have on set by how punctual she is, and the joy she brings with having her. When on set and giving her direction she will apply it to her best of her ability which saves time on set, and a great performance.
On the nights when nights are going later than expected and needing her to stay longer, she is completely on board to go the extra hours to make sure that the project gets finished. She understands the director’s passion and sometimes the need of going a later happens, and she will do it without hearing any complaints from her.
I recommend Deidra as an actress to people, and am pleased to use her when I am able to.”
-Tyson Galland, Director of Döppelganger
