Here’s what Yoon had to say about the experience:
“Getting to listen to the amazing Bahni Turpin read my words was just thrilling!! Bahni really brings Madeline to life. I might have teared up a little bit listening to her read.”

Producer and director Kelly Gildea added, “Bahni’s reading, as Madeline, gave me chills. She totally inhabited this character, who is sweet and funny and tortured, often all at once. It’s a really incredible performance. And I’m so glad we were able to use Robbie Daymond, as Ollie, in the scenes where the two are instant-messaging each other. These are spots where we can really take advantage of the audio medium, and we get to hear the natural progression of their relationship. Great stuff!”

Hear for yourself!
