Coming Soon exclusively to the Official Claudia Christian Website and Store!

THE ORIGINAL is about movies and acting, but touches on high fashion, martial arts, science fiction, and emergency medical procedures. It is a fast-moving and compelling thriller, with flashes of comedy set against desperate and deadly struggles between the Klassnys and Overlords. It has an appeal to a very wide audience, and contains some rare and honest insights into the real Hollywood.
THE ORIGINAL is the story of Sara Larkin, an actress who thought her career in Hollywood was on the slide. Then she kills herself, some mysterious people dispose of the body, and she gets on with life as someone else. At first everything improves. She gets a good role in a major movie, Assassinelle, and soon she is on the way to becoming a superstar.
All the while she is becoming less human… people called the Overlords are still trying to kill her, but the Klassnys have sent the deadly and psychopathic Doctor Svetlana to protect her. It is vital to the Klassnys that both Assassinelle and Sara become major hits. As the movie nears completion, a shadowy war between the Klassnys and Overlords erupts. Sara is caught in the middle, and neither side seems to be the good guys.
The Original will be available for purchase and download ONLY in the Official Claudia Christian Website Store in November 2014. All proceeds go to support the C Three Foundation.
Next month I’m travelling to beautiful Oregon to begin shooting a new project from Road’s End Films called “Runestone“. I get to play a tough viking lady named Fritha and I’m really looking forward to it. PLEASE go “like” their page so you can receive news and behind-the-scenes updates from the set!
Here is a brief description of the show…
“It is the end of the 9th Century. Determined to find his missing son who has not been seen since leaving on a voyage of discovery years earlier, and intrigued by rumors of new lands rich with resources, a Viking lord gathers his countrymen and sails three massive longboats into unknown waters.
A sudden and unexpectedly powerful storm at sea blows the ships adrift. Two of the boats take on heavy damage and disappear from sight, but the lead boat survives and makes landfall in a lush new world. The Vikings are so taken with their good fortune that they do not see the people hidden in the brush and trees, watching them from high above the shore. Vikings or not, how will they deal with an indigenous population that is more than a match for them in strength and cunning, and who far outnumber them?
Thus begins a journey of adventure, mystery, conflict, and drama.”
Coming to Lifetime TV Saturday night. Check your local listings for the appropriate time and channel in your area.
Sypopsis courtesy of myLifetime.com: In this fresh take on Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Wrong Man,” Ellen Plainview (Danica McKellar, TV’s The Wonder Years), a sweet, caring, working wife and mother, answers the door one afternoon to learn that she is under arrest for attempted murder. She enters a legal nightmare as the evidence against her accumulates until it is overwhelming. Her friends and even her policeman husband begin to doubt her innocence, to the point where even she wonders if she somehow committed the violent horrible crime without remembering it, especially when it turns out that the victim was a young woman who was having an affair with her husband.
The film also stars Fred Dryer (TV’s Hunter), Jaleel White (TV’s Family Matters), Dina Meyer (TV’s Birds of Prey and Starship Troopers), Jennifer Blanc (TV’s Dark Angel), and our very own Claudia!
Claudia recently recorded a segment for Larry King Now! with Dr. Jaffee, Dr. Sophy, and actress Meredith Baxter. The episode should be airing soon so keep your eyes on the Larry King Now! website for where and when you can view the segment.
“We spoke about addiction, mainly alcoholism, and the need for more and better options for addicts and their families. Even though Miss Baxter is a strong proponent of 12 Step and I am all about The Sinclair Method; we all agreed that we can a) work together and b) every addict is different and therefore needs personalized treatment. My years on TSM have been extraordinary and I have met some amazing people, not only did this treatment save my life, it defined my life. I am now 100% committed to saving lives through education and direct help, I council people and provide support, I guide them and I befriend them. I have never felt more excited about getting up in the morning than I do at this stage in my life, helping people has been the most gratifying thing I have and ever will do. In each addict I see the me I used to be and my singular joy and wish is to lessen that person’s pain and to help them not lose the time I lost searching for an answer to my addiction. Making the documentary One Little Pill is the next step in saving lives and providing options and I hope you join me in the fight. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/one-little-pill/x/5251511.”
With principal photography currently underway, “One Little Pill” is on schedule to becoming reality in the first half of 2014. However, we need a little assistance with post-production costs (includes editing, color correction, etc.) that are required to complete the project.
We have started a One Little Pill Indiegogo Campaign to help. We hope you will consider donating to this important and close-to-heart undertaking. Claudia is offering all sorts of signed goodies, including music CDs, posters, books, DVDs, digital downloads, and photographs in an effort to raise the funds needed to complete the film. There are many donation levels available and we would greatly appreciate your support.
