AMC Alum Lands Feature FilmBy SOD Posted: Nov 22, 2013
Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall, AMC) is hard at work in Lansing, MI filming her latest project, The Funeral Guest. The romantic comedy follows Emily (Julianna Robinson), a socially isolated woman, who spends her time attending stranger's funerals. Minshew plays Robin, a recently divorced lawyer who fights to win back her ex before Emily takes his heart. "I am thrilled to be playing the role of Robin in The Funeral Guest," Minshew tells Digest. "When I read this script months ago, I knew I wanted to be a part of it! It's such a wonderful story. It is just a bonus that I get to play a fun character! Robin is a strong, feisty, take no prisoners kind of woman. A lawyer who is used to getting what she wants. But when she doesn't -- her insecure (and possibly bitchy) side comes out! Fun! I just love both the director [Matthew Kohnen] and his brother writer/producer [Sean Kohnen]. They are hilarious and insanely talented! I am also really enjoying working with the lead actress -the beautiful Julianna Robinson. She is also such a talent. I am having a blast here in Michigan (freezing my doodles off!)!"
