    Shelly is such an amazing person and a wonderful actress. I’m almost in preproduction with my latest feature and Shelly will be part of that and be playing one of the characters.

    Shelly is a gem. Not because she is precious but because time a pressure have made her invaluable to the film community. This is the kind of voice we all need to hear more of!!

    Shelly! You’re so amazing… love this interview and how you don’t take yourself too seriously. You’re very aware of yourself which I find both vulnerable and endearing. Thank you for being open and loving with your fans!!!
