For those who didn’t know, Steve took part of a short film last year titled Affection which he also helped produced. The film is about a woman that has been fighting with self-doubt all her life with nowhere to call home until she’s faced with a conquest that results in something much more, thanks to her facing a raw feeling she’s rarely faced before: affection.
The short film was written and directed by Tricia Lee who had this to say when asked about the casting of the film in an interview with IndieActivity.com
indieactivity: Did you start writing with a cast (You or any) in mind?
Tricia Lee: I did not have anyone in mind when writing. I like the characters to grow into who they want to be on the page before inhabiting them in a body and giving them a face. I am not an actor, so it definitely would not be me starring in it! But I did find the perfect people to play the characters of Laina and Tyler.
Steve Lund had an older look than I had originally conceived the character to be but when his agent sent his portfolio to me, I knew immediately that I needed to change the role to fit him. I wrote Steve a personal letter to convince him to be in the film and he wrote me back the sweetest letter, accepting. I later found out that he had written the letter without even reading the script! You would recognize Steve from Bitten, Reign and Schitt’s Creek.
You can watch the 9 minute short film below, in addition to the HD screen captures in the gallery now.
Personal Trainer by day, Bartender by night. He’s not the sharpest tool in the shed, but Dane has all the confidence in the world when it comes to the ladies. He loves a good laugh, but often finds himself on the tail end of Riley and Scott’s practical jokes.
Steve was joined by his Flung co-star Meghan Heffern as they stopped by CP24 Breakfast in Toronto yesterday to discuss the film, which is set to premiere at the 2016 Canadian Film Fest this week. Check out the video below if you missed it!
