Vilardo came into this community theater two years ago as a volunteer, but she's held this post full-time for a year and a half now.
She treats the staples of the Triangle arts press like a bartender treats regulars—with kind familiarity, a warm smile, an open ear.
I think you kind of get the impression that her mother also abandoned her, both her parents. She probably ran away from home and had a rough time. and Michael Mc Keon, I was just like a kid in a candy store.
An exceptionally gifted actress, Evan Rachel Wood specialized in playing girls who had often seen and experienced too much at very early ages.She is tremendous, too, in Todd Haynes' HBO mini-series Mildred Pierce as the headstrong, spoilt and promiscuous daughter who wreaks misery in her mum Kate Winslet's life.As befits someone who plays Sophie-Anne Leclerq, the vampire queen of Louisiana, in True Blood, her skin is preternaturally pale.They got matching tattoos of each other’s initials; in Wood’s case, a “J” on her left ankle.
