Aisling Tucker Moore-Redd, who goes by Wyn Reed, stars as the lead role of Valerie in the upcoming horror film From the Dark. Just one day after the film wrapped the journalist turned actress was charged with a real-life murder.
During the five months of filming, investigators obtained cellphone footage of Moore-Reed that she recorded as she shot her uncle, Shane Patrick Moore, 63, in 2016, according to reports. She now faces murder charges and is being held without bail.
The New York Post reports that the filmmakers say they had no idea that she was facing charges in Jackson County, Oregon where she had claimed self-defense. Siskiyou Productions say they are now “struggling” on how to handle the film’s release, set for January.
We had absoloutely no idea about who she was or her circumstances,” the company stated on the Indiegog page for the film.”
Others on the project say that the character’s actions in the film are eerily similar to her real-life crime.
There’s a key scene where she shoots aomebody in a similar fashion,” one source told CBSLA.
Moore-Reed’s trial is scheduled to begin next month.
From the Dark follows a young woman’s last day of work at a lodge in the isolated mountains of Oregon. There is no concrete release date announced.
