Lisa's commercial work
Actor / Host
79 Parts, feature film - comedy
starring Eric Roberts, Tony LoBianco & Sandra Bernhard. I was cast from the very first staged reading of this screenplay. Although the writing went through many changes, I still really enjoyed playing Vera.
Bronx Paradise was an extreme contrast to the physical comedy of 79 Parts. My character, Tina Manfredi, is a drug addict prostitute. Before filming my scenes, one of the producers of Bronx Paradise drove me by Hunts Point in the Bronx for some research. Wow, that was frightening and very sad. It certainly gave me a deeper understanding of my character's world. Actor, Arthur Nascarella played my dad in this gritty indie film.
