Meet the Cast – Part 9
Now I will get back to introducing the cast of the upcoming movie – Without a Country.
Imagine yourself in Watauga County, North Carolina… and the Civil War is raging. You are visiting mountain farmers in the small fields in the upper valley near Valle Crucis. These families are subsistence farmers working hard to feed their family. They have virtually no money. Their crop and chickens and pigs are all they have. Their log cabin, barn and everything else they have comes from their hands.
Our lead characters – James Wilburn “Will” Clark and Suzanne Lusk – were surrounded by family. And some of these family members intermarried. For example, Suzanne’s brother Elkana married Will’s sister Evaline.
Lynn Bolinger (below) played the part of Evaline Clark Lusk, Will’s sister.
