Merlin Napier is set to Star in J.M. Valente's 'BLOOD PASSION'

ATLANTA - Aug. 31, 2018 - PRLog -- Merlin Napier has always had the acting bug. Since he was a young boy he always wanted to be on the big screen. Since, he being a boy growing up in Kentucky; the Lights, and Cameras of Hollywood, as well as the interaction of a Theater audience, ensured that Merlin was hooked by the glitz of the stage and the big screen. Merlin has been continually told by all who encountered him that he should be in Films. Napier decided to dedicate himself to learning the classics and was cast as Friar Tuck in a new modern imagining production of Robin Hood. As the character of Friar Tuck, Merlin focused on learning all he could about stage drama and production, to ensure that he was able to take his performance to the next level.

   Merlin is being cast as the male lead of Michael Valli in BLOOD PASSION and is very excited to take on this role. Merlin adores the Vampire genre, just as much as Skye L. Johnson does, he has commented,

'I love the way that Valente is able to take the feelings of the protagonist and paint it into a picture that is so vividly realistic. You can actually imagine what is going on through the minds of the characters at any given moment. The dialogue, just as the telling of the story, is not created with a flourish of description, as so many of the other writers in the same venue, do and have done. Instead, it is done with a sheer raw nature of feeling and a sense of real community as well as real dedication to the audients that makes his work unlike any other authors now and before him.'

   When it comes to taking up the role of the male lead, Merlin is the perfect fit, seeing as he looks the part and he is clearly the right age and has a very similar demeanor. Merlin commented,

'It is as if the role was written for me. What more could any actor wish for?'

   Merlin works just about every day on his character studies and finds new ways that he can become more of the Vampire character. The series will continue to grow, and develop into a very worthy production, is slated to begin in 2020 and the screenplay is currently in development.

   Valente and English are working together on revisions of the work to ensure that it captures the grit, emotions and the needs of the main characters as outlined in the novel. Working hand in hand together, their goal is that the conversion from one media to another will be successful.
