Rolls since include Eddie in Fool For Love; Pale in Burn This; Estragon in Waiting For Godot; Cassio in Othello; Richard III in Richard III; Brick in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof and Tucker in the theatrical production of What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, directed by it’s author, Peter Hedges, which premiered at The Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC. In LA, Eric was last seen as Looseleaf in Tim Robbins’ The Actors Gang’s production of Kurt Vonnegut’s Happy Birthday Wanda June. His television roles major roles in Weeds; Walker, Texas Ranger; Men Behaving Badly; and Star Trek’s Deep Space Nine and Voyager. He has also done a bunch of very silly movies, the names of which he has now conveniently forgotten.
Andrea Peterson (Woman)
Andrea is originally from Texas, but moved to Salt Lake City by way of Boston, NYC, and Miami. She has a bit of wanderlust. She spent most of her life acting on stage—some of her favorite roles have been playing the Katniss character in the spoof Hunger Game of Thrones, at O.B.T, Katherine in Taming of the Shrew with the New World Shakespeare Co., and most recently as L.D. in the World Premiere of Winter at Salt Lake Acting Company. Andrea is also very involved in the independent film industry and can been seen playing the hot mess, Audra, in the web series You Again. Although, Andrea loves acting, she considers herself a story-teller in whatever facet that life might allow and owns DoYouSee Productions LLC under which she directs, writes, shoots, and edits indie films, music videos, and documentaries. When she is not involved in filmmaking, Andrea’s wanderlust takes over and you can find her hiking through the mountains, on a plane to another country, or relaxing in her backyard with her husband Travis Peterson and their constant shadow, their dog Finn.
