Hi, I’m Graham Phillips and in the last two weeks I played a Disney Prince, released an R-rated modern day western I directed with my brother and lost miserably in a neighborhood Pickleball tournament. AMA.
I’m from laguna beach and got my acting start singing in opera / broadway before switching over to tv and film. Did a show called The Good Wife while going to college for US History and now I’ve recaught the singing bug, one of the reasons I was excited to do the whole Little Mermaid Live show.
My brother and I also finished up our first feature film, a Neo-western love story thriller called The Bygone, which we wrote ＆ directed and I also starred in (not doing that again for a while…)
The film is about a Cowboy who falls for a Native girl who disappears after getting dragged into the world of trafficking in North Dakota. At it’s core its about the place of the Old West in the Modern World. It’s based on true events going on in Indian Country and the negative impact the oil fracking boom has had, particularly on Native women. It’s something I studied for my thesis and if you’re interested, here’s a short director’s statement that explains it better.
