    "This is the first film credit for Rea Mole, who bears a striking resemblance to Tilda Swinton" – Indie Outlook

    Cast as lead in new feature film with ESA Films, PINKY, shooting January 2017

    "We recently cast Rea in the lead role of Sarah in our feature film, PINKY. Rea is a gifted actress who is able to play complex characters with sensitivity. The arc of the role requires an actress who can come across as having a tough exterior whilst being affectionate and vulnerable at times. During rehearsals Rea has demonstrated an ability to get right to the heart of the character very quickly, as well as engaging on a deep emotional level with other characters on set. It’s been a pleasure watching her work"- Zaheer Ahmad, Director of ESA Films
