Five main roles.
Three hundred actors auditioning.
It doesn’t take a math major to know that the odds of ending up on the big screen in this scenario aren’t the greatest.
But Trisha Carr ’08—a math major—went for it anyway. And it paid off.
She received one of the five main roles in the full-length independent feature film Brilliant Mistakes, which is scheduled to be released this summer. Although she has performed on stage for many years, this was her first try at a film role. She plays Erin Penney, a college-age girl whose sister, Gabby, gets into a horrible accident. The Salisbury Film production centers on Gabby’s fiancé, Marcus, and how he and Gabby’s family react to and cope with the accident.
