CAST

Stephanie Dostal - Cassie Thorne 

I have loved performing ever since I was a little kid singing and playing the piano in home movies. When I was in my early teens I was finally able to start acting and I instantly fell in love. There was nothing like being on stage, theater is an art unlike any other, for me its magical. But the movies have always been where my heart is. I am the biggest movie buff I know. Whether it's live theater or being in front of the camera, I feel acting is what I am meant to be doing. I come from a big family with a lot of big personalities and although we are all very different, we support each other in whatever it is we do. I am so grateful to have them in my corner every day. I am so thankful and excited for the opportunity to be a part of Witch Child. I can't wait to start production on this awesome movie.

Nathan Potter - Dylan 

My name is Nathan Potter, I got serious about acting after high school. Mostly everything before that was just me and my old friend making some pretty ridiculous movies. But after high school, I went to Jean Fowler, an amazing acting coach and attended her classes weekly for about a year. I started going to auditions for student films, indie movies, theater projects, you know, really anything just to get better. I plan on making the big move out to Los Angeles, by this time next year.

Mark Clinton - Raphael 

Mark Clinton spent twenty five years in the music business as a freelance drummer; inspired in part by having run away from home as a teenager to work as a roadie for Elvis Presley. Hoping to eventually work as a studio musician, his plans were thwarted by the introduction of the Linn Drum Machine. Undaunted and optimistic, he spent years in the pit, playing musicals in Los Angeles, as well as performing throughout the U. S. and Europe in countless night clubs, cabarets, resorts and hotels. By chance, an open casting call for a Japanese documentary led to his first onscreen appearance … in Japan. After moving to Phoenix in 2006, Mark has appeared in local, regional and national commercials, as well as in print ads and industrials. He is represented locally by the Ford/Robert Black Agency and nationally by Locke Management. Witch Child is his first full length feature film.
