Episode Ten – The Season Finale of “Lilith’s Children” will premier on Wednesday September 5, 2012. It has been nearly a year since the series began on September 7, 2011!
I have been anxiously awaiting the completion of this series. It’s been over a year of work and I am VERY pleased with what I accomplished.
The Cast was FANTASTIC!!! Everybody in the story was wonderful!
Michael Breckenridge as the “Voice of God” who was the Narrator! I had said in interviews that this was the case. He was God, he was also 2 different Priests in the story. So he was the Voice of God. He also played Crane the Helicopter pilot.
Gary Washington as Elias the Rogue Angel. Gary and I first met through Patrick Thornsberry and his Animated work “Ninja Cat”. Gary played Ninja Cat and I played his nemesis The Evil Doctor Dog! I knew when I heard Gary’s voice that I wanted him to play the role of Elias. He has such a hard-edged voice and he had that “Noire” quality I wanted in the Rogue Angel – sort of a Detective with Angel Wings that does not take any crap from anybody!
Lesa Dyer-Cross played the Succubus Grace SO WELL! In real life Lesa is an extremely talented Poet and Writer. She is beautiful inside and out. But when she turns on her charms and amps it up with a bit of Mae West she is so Sexy! Lesa has been on my “Whispers in the Dark” Blog Talk Radio Show several times and listening to her voice I knew that she would be the PERFECT Grace! This was her first time as an actress and she was EXCELLENT! Everyone thought she had acted in the past. Perhaps in a previous life, because she channeled it when she played Grace!
H. Keith Lyons played Teddy in Episodes 1 through Episode 7. Keith sent me an audition for Teddy without me having to tell him how I though Teddy should sound and he WAS Teddy! I was SO impressed! Also the ad-libs and outtakes were hilarious and a BIT dirty! LOL! It was a real pleasure! Keith was one of the first professional actors that was brought into the cast and he was amazing! Unfortunately his schedule was unable to accommodate more episodes and we had to re-cast the role for the remaining 3 episodes of Season One.
M. Sieiro Garcia who played the Angel Arakiel was WONDERFUL in the role! She completely made the role her own. She gave me SO much material to use. Most actors give 3 readings of a line. She gave me more and each time was better and better! She was amazing and I really am glad she was involved in this series. When I wrote Arakiel I really wasn’t sure how I wanted the character to sound. I knew she was tough and business-like. A no Nonsense kind of Angel. She had been imprisoned and released with the goal of tracking down an Angel-Gone-Bad… but she soon learned that Elias was not a Bad Angel, he was on a mission for good. M. Sieiro Garcia out-did herself!
Frank DeF played Lucifer. Frank had been on my radio show several times and if you hear those episodes you will realize that Frank was NOT playing a character. I wanted him to play Lucifer as himself. I knew early in the writing that I wanted characters to NOT be what you would expect. Angels were tough, Demons could Care, but Lucifer was a character that I wanted to be most different. Usually he is played smooth and velvet-voiced. Frank played him more Down-to-Earth and more like an average guy, more like a Boss. Although we all know that it is a facade because Lucifer was out to get what he wants. Even in this story, Lucifer was one step ahead of everybody else, and was out for his interests. Frank is a Writer and a Poet and a Genius! Each word he writes has Volumes of information behind them.
Jeff Niles played the Mysterious Stranger and then he was called Sir, but then eventually we learn he is the Arch-Angel Raziel who has his OWN plans for the Universe! BWAH HA HA! Jeff did SUCH a wonderful job as the Evil and Insane Raziel! I absolutely LOVED his Evil Laughter in each Episode! I had no doubt that Jeff would be the perfect Raziel and he surpassed my expectations. Jeff and I have been friends and business partners for a year now. We both work on projects for the 4077th and we created All Better Audio! Jeff and I work well together. He is the perfect IDEAS man! We bounce stories and ideas off of each other on a daily basis. We have several NEW series arriving soon and our past ones are doing well! Lilith was our first but we also produced “Victoria! Empress of the Universe!” which is a spin-off of his Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes but set in the Steam Punk Universe! Plus there is more coming soon! Three new Series before the end of the year!
Gwendolyn Jensen-Woodard played Lanaia the Earth Spirit. Lanaia was based on my dear friend Lanaia Lee – who protects those of the Dark Realms! Gwen played Lanaia better than I had imagined! She is a fantastic actress and a DEAR sweet friend. She is one of the most dependable people that Jeff and I know. We know that every role she performs will be on-time and beyond our expectations!That’s why we ask her to be involved in almost every project. Her southern charm as Lanaia was beautiful. I wanted Lanaia to be sweet and kind but also a strong and powerful force of Good and basically Mother Nature or Gaia. Her sisters Lenore (the power of Balance on Earth) and their sister Lilith (The force of Chaos on Earth) were always fighting one another with one another. Lenore trying to Lessen Lilith’s Wrath and allowing Lenore time to Heal the World’s damage.
Julian Bane played the Mercenary Treasure-Hunter, Jaxon Tanner. I planned for the character to be a modern day Indiana Jones but this character was MORE than Indy! He possessed a character that was beyond all other men. He would have made a GREAT Green Lantern! But the Ring that Jaxon finds is more powerful and any Ring from the Guardians. This Ring was forged by the Arch-Angel Michael and given to King Solomon. It was created to control Demons to build the Temple of Solomon but it also allowed the wearer a Much more important power! Julian was the ONLY choice for this role. I heard him in several Doctor Who audio stories and I knew his voice was perfect! Jaxon was Tough and a bit Fool-Hardy…. but he loved his girlfriend Nyssa Ravid. So I needed someone who could convey all that range! And Julian was the only one. The tenderness in his voice when he was with Nyssa in the story will bring a tear to your eye.
Natalie Van Sistine played the Archeologist in the team of Mercenaries hired by Sir Raziel. Nyssa is very intelligent and knows many languages and forms of writing. She is an expert in history, mythology and religious studies. Natalie played the role perfectly. Her charming wit and her chemistry with Julian Bane was phenomenal. Every scene that they played felt absolutely real. You cared for these people because they sounded like they were in love and you felt sorrow when they were hurt and you cried when they kissed. I am looking forward to more adventures with the Mercenary Team in the second season of Lilith’s Children. They will be back!
Kurt Bergeron played Roberto Diaz in several episodes and also played the Arch-Angel Michael in Episode 10. Kurt is another professional actor who brings so much to his roles. He went from the rough Hispanic gunner Diaz, to the Arch-Angel Michael. He is a true professional in ever sense of the word. He surpassed my expectations! I can’t wait to have him in more episodes next year.
Radiah Nunez played Lenore, the Spirit of Balance. I met Dia on another Radio show and instantly fell in love with her joy and spirit! She was exactly what I was looking for in the character of Lenore. I wanted her to be completely different that her sisters. She needed to be free-spirited and open minded, full of creativity and fair. Dia played all of that SO well!
Sally Wiget played Lilith. Although Lilith is mentioned in the title and mentioned in the narrations and the story, she didn’t appear until the middle of the series. Jeff suggested Sally as Lilith and he was correct to do so! I wanted Lilith to be opinionated, loud and a real Bitch, but she also was caring of her creatures and her sisters. Sally was perfect in the role! She completely surprised me because I did not know what to expect. She was wonderful in the role! The sisters played off of each other exactly as I had planned.
Michael Romero who played Ricardo the Werewolf was the character before I had even written the role! Michael writes romantic Vampire/Lycan stories with himself as the Werewolf! I knew he had to play this character! Michael has been on my radio show a few times and I asked him if he was interested in being in my series. He had never acted and he was a bit shy, but he did a great job as the quiet unassuming romantic husband to Contessa Tabitha Campbello. Michael is also in another series of mine “Victoria! Empress of the Universe” as the First Mate on a Pirate Space Ship!
Lisa Dousharm played the Contessa Tabitha. Tabitha is a Vampire who has lived for a very long time. She and Ricardo have been married for over 500 years and she was the actual Mona Lisa! Our Lisa played her with grace and charm and the elegance of a Countess! She had the kindness and love that the role needed and she was a great and welcomed addition to our cast!
I was SO lucky to have this cast of actors in my series! Thank you ALL for making my dream come true!
