Teen stars in new feature film 'Along the Dirt Road'

September 25, 2013
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – The new film, "Along the Dirt Road," tells the story of a family that is torn apart by betrayal, abandonment and infidelity living in a small Louisiana town during the 1960s. The film is based on the bestselling novel "Sweet Lavender" by author and Executive Producer Terry O'Neal and is scheduled to be released by the end of 2014.

Alpharetta teen actress and singer Camryn Levert, 15, has been cast as lead character Rae Lynne in the film.

"I identify most with this character because our personalities are very similar," Levert said. "She is shy but smart and most importantly, grew up without a father."

Fifteen-year-old Levert is the youngest daughter of the late R&B Grammy Award-winning singer Gerald Levert, who passed away Nov. 10, 2006, when Levert was only 8 years old.

"My dad inspired me to pursue this career," she said. "I always saw my dad doing his thing, and I always thought it was really cool."

Levert considers herself more of a singer than actor. She has opened up for artists such as Pink and the OMG Girls, but this role is her debut as an actress.

"I decided that it would be best to get an acting coach at this time," she said. "I mostly struggle with learning how to speak with a Southern accent like my character. It's been really fun though."

Levert considers her father, grandfather and Whitney Houston her biggest role models and inspirations as she pursues her lifelong career choice of being an actor and singer. She hopes to win at least four Grammies in her lifetime.

"Along the Dirt Road" is set in Lake Charles, La., where filming is expected to begin in March 2014. Levert said that she is thrilled to be given the opportunity to star in this sure-to-be classic film and share her talent with the world.
