Mitchell Holden turned in a nuanced and truly riveting performance. He inhabits and transforms the character of Tim into a multi-layered masterpiece; sympathetic, troubled and terrifying.
I have known Mitch as an actor, a writer, a director. Mitch does everything with the most upstanding character, vision, and intensity. We studied with some of the best acting teachers in the country if not the world at the Stella Adler Conservatory in Los Angeles, California as well as Stella Adler herself who holds a most notable place in the history of American Theatre Acting teachers.
One capacity I must point out is seeing him lead the nonprofit theater which he conceptualized and brought to life focused on a therapeutic development for young actors and artists. He directed the opening production as well as acted in it with the spirit of generosity. I do not know if such an event of its caliber had ever been accomplished before or since. Mitch is highly qualified to guide and train others for success and most importantly to artistry.
Mitch is, by any means, one of the finest performers I have had the opportunity to work with. Be it his quick wit, his charming attitude or his passion for the art, Mitch serves as an asset to a film set that is invaluable. Everyone enjoys his company, which makes a stressful or time-constrained shoot much easier. To finish on an obvious note, his acting is superb, and he won’t hesitate to bring a lot more out of a character than you imagined was possible.
