Sarah Carter on That One Audition with Alyshia Ochse

Sarah Carter

Sarah Carter 1920 960 Alyshia Ochse

Sarah Carter is a writer, director, actor, filmmaker, and CEO of Cheshire Moon Productions. Her success as an actor inspired a quiet pursuit of the director’s chair beginning with Judd Apatow and Seth Rogan inviting her into the writer’s room to develop her character on their comedy series ‘Undeclared’. Since then, she has shadowed and worked with several top directors, including Spike Lee, Martin Donovan, and Miguel Sapochnik most notably over the course of her 5-year run on Steven Spielberg’s “Falling Skies”. Her debut feature, “In Her Name”, premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in June 2022, winning an Audience Award. Along with “A Pity”, a film she starred in and produced with her husband, writer/director/editor Kevin Barth, “In Her Name” continues to collect accolades and recognition from international audiences.

Her mission is to exemplify the simple truths that offer hope and freedom amidst the insanity that is our human condition. With equal reverence for innocence and shadow, her work is infused with compassion, forgiveness, and wisdom and is an example of what can come through within the madness of life when the feminine is empowered to lead.

Chukwudi Iwuji

Chukwudi Iwuji 1920 960 Alyshia Ochse

Chukwudi is a brilliant, British/Nigerian classically-trained actor who’s versatility has already started paving the way for a bright career ahead. Chukwudi is making his Marvel debut as the big bad villain ‘High Evolutionary’ in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 3, the next installment in the blockbuster franchise, premiering May 5, 2023. GOTG3 is one of the most anticipated films of the year, and Chukwudi’s character is already being deemed as one “who will steal the show in 2023.”

Last year, Chukwudi made his DC debut in the hilariously chaotic DC Comics and HBOMax series PEACEMAKER from the mind of James Gunn. The series was quickly “Certified Fresh” by Rotten Tomatoes. Chukwudi’s portrayal of ‘Clemson Murn’ had him buzzing as one of the biggest breakout stars of 2022.

An accomplished theater veteran, Chukwudi previously starred in OTHELLO for The Public Theatre’s Shakespeare in the Park as well as in ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, KING LEAR, and HAMLET. Chuk’s performance in THE LOW ROAD, directed by Michael Greif, earned him an Obie Award, as well as 2018 Lucille Lortel and Drama League nominations. An Associate Artist of the prestigious Royal Shakespeare Company for his numerous Shakespearean performances, he has also received two Olivier awards for his titular role as HENRY VI in the RSC’s 2009 productions of parts I, II, and III.

Other credits include the BBC drama THE SPLIT, Michael Morrissey’s THE GIRL WHO GOT AWAY, and the Amazon limited series THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD for director Barry Jenkins.
