Kayden Rose Nabs the Lead in Upcoming Feature Film Thanatomorphose
Thanatomorphose. No, it's not the term for how a tadpole turns into a frog or how Chaz Bono turned into ... whatever it was she turned into. Thanatomorphose is a seriously twisted looking upcoming horror film from Canadian director Éric Falardeau. And now the film has its leading lady.
The lovely Kayden Rose, who has previously acted in three short films and done various modeling work, will take on the daunting task of leading the way in Thanatomorphose, which is a French word referring to "the visible signs of an organism’s decomposition caused by death." Good luck, Kayden.
