Born and raised in Springfield, Mass., Eddie DeMars is quite the unexpected comedian. Retired from working at the post office for 28 years, Eddie has since been acting and modeling for the past 8 years. Although he’s used to playing the “tough guy” in many of his roles, he would chose to be a stand-up comedian if he weren’t acting. “I’ve always been somewhat of a funny guy, I’m forever making people laugh; I’m very good at one liners. The late George Carlin is the type of comic I would style myself after,” DeMars said.

Home is where the heart is and for Althea Blackford, home is the entertainment world. “I don’t think there would be any other job I would be interested in outside of the entertainment world. I feel right at home working and being a part of this world,” Blackford said.

 

A current media technician for Harvard University and an executive producer for Boston’s own VStyle Productions, Blackford has been in the entertainment industry for years. “I have been acting since I was a kid in church plays.” From performing in church or school plays, she was always working on her acting chops. “When I was in middle school, my mother took me to various acting workshops so I was always working on monologues or plays,” Blackford said.
