Shame's Lucy Walters to headline new film

Lucy Walters

Story by Jack Foley

LUCY Walters – aka the girl on the subway in Shame – has landed the lead role in the recently announced Lies I Told My Little Sister, from producer Jonathan Weisbrod.

The actress has been generating much industry buzz since the release of Shame, Steve McQueen’s sex addict drama starring Michael Fassbender, in which Walters starred as the “sexy woman on the NYC subway”.

In only two scenes, with no lines, Walters managed to leave a lasting impression with the erotic tension she generated with Fassbender.

Announcing her casting in Lies I Told My Sister, producer Weisbrod said: “It’s clear that Lucy is on the brink of a major career. She is an extraordinarily natural actress, imbuing her characters with a rare blend of intelligence, humour, sexiness and vulnerability. We couldn’t be more ecstatic to have her as our lead.”

Lies I Told My Little Sister is a female-character-driven dramedy that explores the universal themes of sibling rivalry and family dynamics.

Another up and comer, 21-year-old NYU student William J. Stribling, is set to direct.

Stribling’s short film, Break A Leg, also produced by Weisbrod, was recently awarded Best Directing, Producing, Editing, and Overall at the 2012 NYU New Visions & Voices Film Festival.

The feature is set to film in Cape Cod and New Jersey beginning in May.
