Harri Molese is a New York actor who has performed principal and featured roles in films, TV, commercials, industrials, webisodes, infomercials, music videos and print ads. Among her credits she has had featured and main roles in the independent feature films “Shankman’s Deli” and “For Never”, as well as in the independent short films “In the Bag” (a PBS Winning Short Film), “Remembering Susan”, the Japanese feature film “Manhattan Diaries”, and the Italian-American family-based film “La Mia Famiglia”. By the way, coming herself from an Italian-American background, she laughingly says she is okay with playing a teasing “Rocker Grandma” in the intense, hardcore action thriller “CIRCLE”.
On TV, Harri has brought her comedic sense of humor and playful spontaneity to “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart, the CBS-TV episodic “Love Monkey”, and the Primetime ABC-TV series “What Would You Do?” with John Quiñones. She recently worked on a new comedy feature film starring Vince Vaughn scheduled for release in 2013. Above all this, as interesting as it is, CNN-TV has actually done a story about this lovely actress.
Bekir Ognat, clearly intrepid man of many hats, started studying acting 5 years ago as an exciting fun experiment. He earned the nickname “Big Boss” from his acting friends in New York due to his choices during improvisation exercises. Some of these strong choices, however, led him to be kicked out of school where he had been studying the Meisner Technique for 2 years. Nevertheless, he is not easily deterred, and soon after his tenacious curiosity had propelled him on to filmmaking courses at the School of Visual Arts, New York University, New York Film Academy, and the New School. At one point he concurrently had a full time job and classes 7 days a week at different schools. What is more, he sometimes slept in his car, and seriously wished he had an RV to make his life easier.
Down the road, he has now actively taken part in some film projects and he even volunteered in a number of indie movies, including “Hitting Rock Bottom”, and not long ago he also participated as a producer in the short film “Kill St”. Bekir currently has other upcoming movie projects of his own to be developed after this short film “CIRCLE” is fully completed and released. He still takes classes from HB Studio to stay connected to acting, which he firmly believes is the foundation of good filmmakers, writers, and directors.
