Congratulations to Brooklyn Rae Silzer, who was awarded the “Star on the Horizon” at the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival for her work in the film The Storyteller! Fans of GENERAL HOSPITAL already know how talented she is from her performances as Emma Drake on the daytime soap (she earned a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in 2016!) but now everyone will know, too!
In The Storyteller, Silzer stars as Abby, an enchanted young girl who brings wonder and healing to a broken family. And there are other familiar GH faces in the cast as well! Constance Towers (ex-Helena) stars as Rosemary, and Kristina Wagner (Felicia) plays Doctor Gordon. The movie is still making the rounds at film festivals, but you can actually watch it for yourself with Hallmark Movies Now. Check out this lovely trailer!
Silzer is definitely proving herself a young actress on the rise. In addition to her recurring appearances on GH, she has guest starred on CRIMINAL MINDS: BEYOND BORDERS and CODE BLACK as well as starring in Hallmark Channel’s Christmas in Homestead alongside daytime alum Jeff Branson (ex-Ronan, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS; Shayne, GUIDING LIGHT; Jonathan, ALL MY CHILDREN).
Silzer’s award for Star on the Horizon is just one of the many accolades The Storyteller has been racking up at film festivals. The movie itself has been awarded Best Family Feature and Outstanding Feature Film among others. And as soon as there is any information on an official release, either in theaters or on DVD, we’ll be sure to let you know!
