"Jenna is incredible to work with. She is prepared and pours her entire self into the role. This was a true collaboration between director and actress, communicating ideas in every scene and take, helping each other make a better movie. I guided her passionate performance and she filled me with creative energy.
If you want an actress who always has a good attitude, who works hard, who delivers what you want, hire Jenna Ciralli."
