For the last day of the Spiritus Free promotion, I thought I'd give my readers a glimpse at the faces behind the characters. As I was writing, I had specific faces in mind for each of my characters and developed my own mental cast of characters. How do they compare to what you had in mind? I would love to know!
Hilly Hindi's Biography (TheHillywoodShow.com)
The Hillywood show® is the brainchild of internet celebrities, comedy sister duo Hilly and Hannah Hindi. Each parody features satire sketches, character impersonations, song and dance parodies and spoofs of big box office films such as “TWILIGHT” and “THE DARK KNIGHT”. Every parody/sketch the Hindi sisters create include relative famous pop culture references aimed to the teen/young adult audience.
The look and style of The Hillywood Show® is constantly changing to keep up with the pop culture and newest franchise, but keeping the same mix of comedy, quirky performances, dead on impersonations, musical pastiche and movie spoofs. Their incredible costumes & make-up would impress even the most seasoned “Saturday Night Live” cast member! With over 5,000,000 viewers The Hillywood Show® continues to grow!
Hilly has been dancing for fifteen years. She takes ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, and hip-hop. She has received honors for her dancing abilities from the Royal Academy of Dance and, also, the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing in London, England. She has performed in numerous church functions, National competitions, conventions and concerts.
Since the age of five, her family noticed something different and unique in her acting. She loved using her personality in annual dance recitals, children’s pantomime shows and drama competitions, which earned Hilly her first blue ribbon at the age of six.
Hilly began imitating characters when she was thirteen. Her first character impersonation was Pippin Took (Billy Boyd) from “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. Since then, Hilly’s impersonations have grown into a much broader range of approximately 20 characters. Hilly now plans to act in major motion pictures, television shows etc. God willing, her endeavors will come to pass.
Alastor: The part of the romantic ghostly lead had to be a man that was sexy, with amazing eyes, and able to draw you in. When I first saw the Vampire Diaries from the Hillywood Show, I knew I had found my Alastor.
Nick Strong is a model that was selected to play the part of Damien. I loved how he looked with Hilly Hindi.
Jonah: I wanted to Jonah to be sexy, but lacking the dreamy quality of Alastor. To me, Alex Pettyfer seemed perfect for the part!
