Tristan Risk, who wowed audiences in the role of Beatress in American Mary last year, will be bringing her fabulous talents to the set of director Ryan M. Andrews’ newest project, Save Yourself, which begins filming soon.
Little Miss Risk can also be seen in the new short film Call Girl, the upcoming Fetish Factory and Fembot, as well as many other entertainingly twisted underground projects, leading to what is sure to be a huge and exciting year for her. Currently, she joins Jessica Cameron amongst a fully Canadian cast in Andrews’ Save Yourself.
Andrews is completely stoked to be working with Risk. “The Soskasâ€™ film American Mary was arguably the biggest indie film of last year, and Tristan Riskâ€™s character, Beatress, was a stand-out performance,” Andrews said. “The character was so unique and interesting. Risk played it perfectly, and to have a talent like her bringing her edge and attitude to Save Yourself is truly exciting.”
And the respect is mutual as Risk is very excited to join such a talented cast and crew. On joining Save Yourself, Risk said, “Iâ€™m so thrilled to be doing this since itâ€™s got some great traditional horror elements with girls road tripping and running afoul of some folks of a deviant nature but also because of its other qualities. I think this will surprise quite a few people and continue a proud tradition with Canadian genre.”
From the Press Release
Director Ryan M. Andrews is excited to attach American Mary star Tristan Risk to a powerhouse ensemble cast of Canadian talent in Save Yourself. Risk joins the previously announced cast of Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare), Ry Barrett (The Demolisher), Tianna Nori (Clean Break), and Sydney Kondruss (The Drownsman).
And the talent does not stop there. Andrews, along with executive producers Pino Halili and Allen Ormerod, did a grueling casting session to hand pick for each role, including Caleigh LeGrand (Late Night Double Feature), Bea Santos (Antisocial), and a special appearance from veteran star Bobbie Phillips, whose credits include Wes Cravenâ€™s Carnival of Souls, Showgirls, Evil Breed, “The X-Files.” and many more.
Phillips says, â€œIâ€™m thrilled to be joining the cast of Save Yourself and looking forward to working with the delightfully twisted Ryan Andrews, Jessica Cameron, and the rest of the bloody talented crew.â€
Returning to Andrewsâ€™ side to shoot the film is Michael Jari Davidson (Berkshire County, The Last Halloween, SICK). “Mr. Davidson shares the same love and passion that I have for this genre. His skills are beyond reproach, and his style compliments me perfectly,” Andrews says about his cinematographer.
