Jed Fox - Ed Lofton
Born in August of 1961, the fifth of six children, Jed Fox (that is his given name) moved frequently as his father served in the Air Force until his retirement. "This had the added benefit of moving to some beautiful places, like Hawaii, and making us very close as we depended on each other a bit more than friends outside the family, in particular when we were young."
Jed always exhibited imagination and a desire to become different people, even at a very young age, creating elaborate costumes and, more than merely playing, "becoming" characters from literature, movies, history and television.
His mother had professional experience in 'show business' and both parents encouraged him to pursue acting (with something to fall back on, of course!) Like most teens, Jed listened to them, and then pursued a living as a professional musician instead. After approximately 5 years of near misses in the music industry, Jed joined the Air Force himself. After four years, Jed re-entered the civilian world. Struggling at various odd jobs and low pay in New Mexico in the late 80's, Jed relocated to Lawton, Oklahoma where he served 20 years as a police officer. During this time he met his wife-to-be, Shelli. She was a dispatcher at the same department.
She encouraged them to start acting in the local community theaters, which they both loved. As retirement loomed near and their four boys 'left the nest' they started to pursue acting as their sole professional career. Good fortune has followed them and this has been their "day job" since retirement.
Taylor Nieland - Callie

After three years of weekly professional acting classes coupled with a full-time job in marketing, Taylor's husband encouraged her to take a leap of faith and focus on her passion for acting. It was his support that gave her the courage to follow her dreams and do what she always knew she was born to do.
She stays current by attending on-camera film acting classes with Deke Anderson at Next Level Acting Studios and Trisha Ray's Stanislavski Method class at Next Actor Studio.
Outside of acting, Taylor enjoys traveling, hot yoga, reading, and spending time with her friends, family, and her Goldendoodle.
