I did not misspell anything. Masha King has been cast in the role of Cass in The Videoblogs. Get it? I’m funny.
In all seriousness — it is with great pleasure that we publicly welcome Masha to The Videoblogs family. Rebecca and I have known Masha for a while, and she was kind enough to play a faceless bartender for us in Multiverse when we shot it a few years ago. We were excited to call her in to audition for the role of Cass in The Videoblogs, because we felt it would be a great match for the energy we’ve seen her bring to characters in the past. Masha did not disappoint in her auditions.
Cass is the best friend to protagonist Margaret. Like Margaret, she’s facing a transition period in life, wherein she is growing tired of “working hard and playing hard” — and doing little else. Cass also struggles to recalibrate their close relationship after Margaret “changes” following years of therapy — though there remains a deep bond between the two women.
So, again, please join us in welcoming a major supporting actor to The Videoblogs. Follow Masha on Twitter here.
