Ross Partridge was last seen as Matt in the critically-acclaimed Duplass Brothers’ film BAGHEAD (Sundance 2008). Upcoming films include THE FREEBIE (Sundance 2010) directed by Katie Aselton, THE OFF HOURS directed by Megan Griffiths, THE TREATMENT with Joshua Leonard, directed by Steven Shardt and Sean Nelson, and FEED THE FISH, alongside award-winning actor Tony Shaloub and Barry Corbin.

In addition, Ross wrote and directed the feature film INTERSTATE 84, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, starring Kevin Dillon and Clifton James and executive produced by Kevin Spacey.

Tara Summers has appeared in major motion pictures that have been both critical and popular hits, including ALFIE with Jude Law, THE JACKET with Adrien Brody, and WHAT A GIRL WANTS with Amanda Bynes and Colin Firth. She costarred in FACTORY GIRL with Sienna Miller and Guy Pearce, and LOVE LIES BLEEDING opposite Jenna Dewan, Brian Geraghty and Christian Slater. She will soon be seen in the much anticipated indie drama LUSTER. Tara had a recurring role on FX’s “Dirt” and has just completed two seasons as a series regular on “Boston Legal”.
A graduate of Brown University (where she received a B.A. in History) and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Tara has also written and starred in her own one-woman theatrical show, Gypsy of Chelsea. The play is the story of Tara’s childhood, charting her mother's turbulent journey from cocaine addiction to recovery. Seen through the eyes of Tara aged eight to 18, we encounter an astonishing range of characters that make up this extraordinary story.
Gypsy of Chelsea performed to critical acclaim and a full house at the Royal Court Theatre in London (where Tara is a member of the Young Writers Programme) and most recently at Studio 54 in New York City in aid of Action on Addiction, where audiences included Annette Bening, Jack Nicholson, Harvey Keitel, Lorne Michaels and Anjelica Huston. Given Tara’s experience with addiction, its no surprise that the young actress was tapped to play blue-blood Brigid Berlin (aka Brigid Polk) in FACTORY GIRL.
Tara resides in Los Angeles and London.
Kay Panabaker is an award-winning actress with numerous television, stage, and film credits as well as a history degree from UCLA – all earned before she turned 18.
Kay can next be seen in the highly anticipated ABC show coming out this fall “No Ordinary Family.” The show is about a normal, modern family who suddenly acquires supernatural powers after their plane crashes in the Amazon. Kay stars as ‘Daphne Powell’ the daughter of Julie Benz and Michael Chiklis.
In the spring of 2010 Kay played ‘Young Kitty Walker’ on the hit ABC show “Brothers and Sisters” and also starred in the Lifetime movie “Secrets in the Walls.”
Teenagers will recognize Kay from her role as angst-filled teen Nikki Westerly on the drama “Summerland”, for which she won the Young Artist Award for “Best Performance by a Leading Young Actress in a TV Series – Comedy or Drama.” Younger fans know her from her work on Disney Channel, including the telefilm “Read It and Weep” and a recurring role on “Phil of the Future.” Kay also played Lindsey Willows, daughter of Marg Helgenberger’s character on “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.” Her other screen credits include “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Medium,” “Ghost Whisperer,” “Boston Legal,” “Two and a Half Men,” and “Weeds.”
In 2007, Kay was seen on the big screen playing best friend George to girl sleuth “Nancy Drew” in the Warner Brothers feature film adaptation of the classic book series, and later on the small screen, in Lifetime’s “Custody”, alongside Rob Morrow and James Denton. She played the title character in “Moondance Alexander,” an award-winning family film which also starred Lori Loughlin and Don Johnson. That role earned her the Dixie Film Festival’s award for “Outstanding Actor/Actress in a Film.” She was also recognized in 2007 for her performance in the Dylan and Cole Sprouse film “A Modern Twain Story: The Prince And The Pauper,” receiving the inaugural “Rising Star Award” at the Temecula Valley International Film Festival.
In 2009 Kay starred in the MGM remake of “FAME” along side Kelsey Grammer, Megan Mullally, and Bebe Neuwirth.
Extraordinarily focused, Kay was able to accommodate a rigorous academic schedule in addition to her work, graduating as valedictorian of her high school at the age of 13, and then completing her undergraduate work in history at UCLA in March 2007, at the age of 17. That made her the youngest graduate on record for the UCLA History Department – which is ranked 9th in the nation.
