Main Cast

Roe Pacheco
Roe Pacheco as Maxine
Roe Pacheco was born on the East Coast in the smallest state in the
Union, Rhode Island. She’s very proud of of her Italian heritage, and
cannot really survive without at least one plate of macaroni and
meatballs a week. From a young age, she was performing in tap dance
shows an plays and puppet shows. Her interest in design brought her to
Chicago, where she studied fashion illustration and advertising
design. She worked as a stylist for a table top photographer and a
make up artist, with famous models like Kerry Harper, Karen Alexander,
Christina Kempner, etc. Finding herself in front of the camera for
print modeling, she eventually worked on film sets in the Windy City.
After her daughter Alexa was born, she moved back to the tiny state of
RI, and pursued a career in jewelry and accessories design – but she
never really let acting get too far from her mind – thinking that RI
was not a place you could find work – but that’s exactly what
happened. Fast forward to 2012, where she started working in front of
the camera in New England – commercials, web series, indie films,
studio films, shorts and documentaries. She kept getting busier and
busier, with jobs and ongoing training. She now works in Boston, NYC,
ATL and Florida and just about anywhere the film industry takes her.
She uses her design skills in every aspect of storytelling – and has
done many jobs behind the camera in makeup, styling, and crafting..
Her first short film premiered at the prestigious RIIFF, her second
one won Best Concept at Austin Micro Film Festival. Roe owns a small
company that produces wedding and floral designs, and is a master in
faux botanicals. She is very fond of up-cycling old things to create
new designs for any event, party or film set. Her company was featured
in US Bank’s “Resilience Rising” series, and taps into her creativity
and how she managed to uplift her customers during the Covid pandemic.
Her main passions are storytelling and design, and she considers it an
honor to create a character – to design a persona that will bring the
story to life. She recently shot a period piece in NYC portraying
Julian of Norwich, and a national commercial starring Travis Kelce for
Campbell’s Soup. Taking on the role of producer, she is now involved
in a project for a well known actor’s debut feature, and has been cast
in a sitcom and a new indie feature, to be announced soon. Most of
all, she loves to collaborate and hopes to be on set with you soon. www.rosiepacheco.com

Bradley Rhodes

Bradley Rhodes as Dick
Brad is a native-born Texan, but has lived the majority of his life in the Northeast. He loves acting and creating characters, and would do it 36 hours a day if that was possible. Many of his favorite characters have been just on the edge of quirky and unpredictable; for instance: the leader of some unfortunate souls stuck in Limbo (or purgatory), a has-been children’s show sea captain, a four star general in a sci-fi thriller, the neurotic owner of a two-bit theme park in Toledo; and detectives — many of them!
