Starring in Jailbait with Sara Malakul Lane, Erin’s true talents shined and even her costar admired Erin’s talent and personal skills, “I loved working with Erin, she is one of the hardest working people I know – she’s got this gangster vibe in Jailbait and she can kick some serious ass, but off screen she is super sweet, and has this bubbly energy that makes you just want to be around her.  And she is a great kisser …” said Sara.


Erin gained a lot of well-deserved recognition in Jailbait which contributed to more lead roles including Michael DeVita’s One Penny.  “I just wrapped “One Penny”.  We shot for a month in the Baltimore/DC area. It’s the story of a young homeless kid who is trying to create a better life for himself, despite facing extreme disadvantages. I play Jordon, the female lead. Jordon befriends the boy and becomes his confidant and encourages him to pursue his dreams. It’s a really sweet and uplifting story” Erin shared.

I am excited to be working alongside some of the best Female MMA and UFC fighters, including Miesha Tate. The film centers around women’s underground fighting. The story has a lot of heart and will for sure challenge me as an actor. We start filming late August in New Jersey & the Philadelphia area.”
