Nicole Leigh Jones

Nicole Leigh is a remarkably talented Dallas-based actor which we had the privilege of working with on our first feature film, the Civil War thriller Shroud. The film also stars G. Russell Reynolds (Chuck, Prison Break), Charles Baker (Breaking Bad), Morgana Shaw (I Love You Phillip Morris, Dr. T and The Women) and Larry  Jack Dotson (Deep in the Heart).

In Shroud, Nicole plays Lady Victoria Celestine, a Dutch wife who travels to Civil War America to find her missing husband only to discover the creature responsible for his murder: Cinecusa, a former foot soldier cursed by the conquistador Francisco Coronado three hundred years earlier.

Nicole brought not only a commanding beauty to the role, but also an elegance, fashion and femininity so often sacrificed these days in the pursuit of female action roles.

Shroud is a prequel to a famous 19th century novel of international acclaim.

Despite our ruthlessly modest budget, the grueling schedule, and the demands of so complex a character, Nicole displayed consummate professionalism through every hardship. Throughout our multiple locations across the great state of Texas, pistol training, hatchet fighting, fight choreography, swordplay, a dozen wardrobe changes including medieval plate armor and shield, Nicole brought a calm dedication to her work, the set, and her fellow actors and crew.

I have worked with Nicole now on three different projects and remain quite impressed with her hard work, punctuality, professionalism, range and charm.  She is a talented actor capable of virtually anything you throw at her, and we expect to see a great many more achievements from her in the coming years.

Thanks, Nicole.
