JC Films’ A Promise to Astrid, was mainly filmed in Bridgeport, WV, and is based on the true story told in the award-winning book of the same name by Mike Tourville. The book is available online and at Amazon.com. The story is a heartwarming tale of how Astrid, a woman with a huge heart and quirky ways, impacts those who came to know her.
The film stars local actress JoAnn Peterson who brilliantly portrays Astrid Nicosia, Dean Cain, actor, director, and best known for playing Clark Kent in the TV show Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman plays Pastor Scott Seabury, and Jeremy Gladen gives a standout performance playing Mike Tourville. Several locals were part of the project and appeared in the film.
