Rachelle LeFevre speaks up for NC Film

Although Rachelle LeFevre could not attend the incredible NC Film Rally yesterday, she took the time out of her day to speak up for NC Film.

“ARachelles an actor, being away from your home, your friends and your family can often be the hardest part of the job. It’s for this reason that I’m so happy to say that Wilmington has come to feel like a second home for many in our cast, myself included. During the first season of our show it quickly became evident how much this beautiful state has to offer both productions and those relocating with them. Although I was sad to leave my life in Los Angeles, I was also excited to return here for our second season. The people here are welcoming, the locations are stunning and our North Carolina based crew is easily among the best of any in the world. Film and television production isn’t what it used to be ten years ago, where networks and studios flashed deep pockets and producers had enormous budgets with money to burn. The landscape has changed and I haven’t filmed a series in the last five years where the decision of where to to shoot wasn’t based on one factor: economics. Productions go, sadly, not where it’s most beautiful or where they have the best crews, but where it’s most affordable; losing the tax credits here WILL send production elsewhere. This would be devastating for the thousands of people whose livelihoods depend on the incoming flow of productions, and the local businesses that would indirectly suffer hard losses. As a supporter of NC Film and Wilmington Film Crew it is my sincerest hope that the talented, hard-working people I have met be allowed to continue doing world-class work right here in North Carolina, and that other actors get the experience of living in this beautiful state and the charming, fast-growing city of Wilmington where I have come to feel so at home.”
