In its “Best Of” list for 2011, Berkshire online gives Leigh Strimbeck an honorable mention in the best actress category for her role as Clare in Capital Repertory’s Kingdom of the Shore, written by Terrance Lamude and directed by Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill.
In August I acted in Fighting for Freedom, directed by Farhad Mann with Kristanna Loken & Bruce Dern. I’m playing Florence Dobbe, the wife of Christian Dobbe (Bruce Dern). Look for more news about the film in the upcoming year! Such a great script and a talented cast and production team, I’m honored to be part of this film.
