On Saturday, June 18th I attended the season two premiere of ‘BRIDGE AND TUNNEL’ at Tribeca Film Festival.
The exclusive screening included the first four episodes of the season. It was followed by a conversation with writer, director, and executive producer Edward Burns. Cast members Sam Vartholomeos, Caitlin Stasey, Gigi Zumbado, JanLuis Castellanos, Isabella Farrell, and Brian Muller were also in attendance.
Before the screening I had the opportunity to chat with Sam Vartholomeos. Sam expressed his excitement for season two and the challenges his character was going to have to face and overcome. As an actor, he learned a lot about himself during the filming process which he was happy to speak on.
After the screening, Edward Burns and the cast joined together on stage for a Q&A. Each cast member had an opportunity to speak on their beginnings as an actor. For most, this moment on stage was a full circle moment. Many reflected on their start as actors and how difficult it was at times. Being where they are now being able to look back at the start of the journey is a blessing.
It was evident in the Q&A that the show was a labor of love. Many of the crew members were also in the audience. Edward Burns invited them to stand and get recognition for their hard work.
