Hey, everyone, my name is Veronica Burgess, and I play Sarah, the parole officer in the film Death in Texas. I’m really, really excited for this film to be released into the universe because I really think that it’s a phenomenal story, a beautiful story, and a very touching story. Lots of drama, lots of emotions, lots of things happening. But deep down, it is the story of Billy’s journey. Billy is our lead character who is played by my husband, Ronnie Gene Blevins. Fun little fact, we’ve been together for seven years, married for four and we have been in the same projects together, but we’ve never actually been scene partners and so this film was the first time that I got to act with my husband, which was super fun and gratifying in many ways.
Everybody that worked on this film was just phenomenal. I mean, down to, you know, obviously, Scott Windhauser, our writer, director. He wrote this story several years ago, and so to see it all come together was really fun. He did an amazing job, directing, and really bringing this story to life. And, you know, we got some phenomenal actors. I mean, obviously, my husband, the legendary Bruce Dern, the infamous Lara Flynn Boyle, Stephen Lang, John Ashton, I mean, these guys are, you know, people that I only dreamed I would ever get a chance to meet and work within some capacity. And so that was really a dream come true with this particular film.
Additionally, all of our producers, Alan and Riki our Executive Producers are just salt of the earth, amazing, creative, kind, phenomenal people. Brandon, Tony, my brother-in-law, Andy Godbold, he was also a producer. It was really cool to have this be like a family affair. It was just such a wonderful time, like working the environment on set was always you know, everybody was there to do their jobs and to do them well, but we were having fun and you know, long days didn’t seem long because we were all really enjoying the process of creating this film. So I really hope that when it comes out, you will watch it and enjoy it. And, here’s to Death in Texas!
