Fabulously talented artist Gwyn Russell created this stylized concept of "Nicole" in Iraq.
The image conveys the tense, difficult scene that takes place outside a factory during a combat raid.

The role of "Nicole Young" has been cast! I will formally introduce the actor in a different blog entry in a day or two.
Suffice it to say she's talented and fits the role really well.
There were more than seven actors who auditioned for "Nicole." All of them had talent and enthusiasm. It wasn't easy narrowing it down and Micah and I are both grateful to those folks who took the time to submit for the role.
In the end it comes down who is "Nicole Young?" She's a mother, a counselor, a combat veteran and so much more...but she is - above all else - a normal, flawed soul seeking redemption.
Aren't we all?
