The Magic Beans is a feature written and directed by Theo Panayides.

Check it out this dark comedy on  IMDB.

It’s about four actors (plus their annoying friend) waiting in an old house for a drama teacher to arrive and lead them in a workshop. At some point they get hungry, and buy five portions of beans from a nearby restaurant – but the beans lead to comical hallucinations and weird goings-on, allowing them to resolve their personal issues in unexpected ways.

I was called in to read for one of the female leads. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t get that part but was offered a principal role by the director where I played a TV show host, that interviewed on the lead characters in a dream.

The film opened at the 2015 Cyprus Film Days film festival, for its National Competition Section, which exclusively showcases Cypriot productions.
