Katrina in A New Tomorrow With Erin


In 2007 Katrina was cast a movie called "A New Tomorrow" (see the image to your left for her character bio). Click here for the official web site Erin Cummings (Sura) and Katrina were to star in Spartacus together years later - Read Erin's recollections about the movie here

I asked Katrina her thoughts about this movie and this is her response:

"A New Tomorrow" is the "little independent films that could" and I had a blast making it. This is one of the first film that I was cast in when I arrived in LA and it will always have a special place in my heart. The thing I remember most about this film is just having ridiculous amounts of fun. Tom O'Keefe, who played my husband was was the rest of the cast. But it was usually him that I would have to stare at in the middle of a take and try not to break out into a fit of giggles.

It wasn't until I was standing in the Green Room of Spartacus looking at cast photos on the wall that I recognized Erin Cummings and realized we has been in A New Tomorrow together. It was a fun moment of bonding when we finally saw each other on the set in Auckland.

Info about a 2007 movie, " A New Tomorrow"


"A New Tomorrow" website with trailer. This is a movie that Erin did in 2007.

Erin's comments about the movie:
"A New Tomorrow" was a great experience for me because of the incredibly talented and funny actresses that I was able to work with. Hillary Crouse, Jessica Lancaster and Jodi Schilling kept me in stitches the entire shoot and our characters were so over the top that it allowed for quite a few "I can't stop laughing" moments on set. Funnily enough, it was my first project with Katrina Law, but we never even met because we had no scenes together. Fortunately, Spartacus reunited us and we share a good amount of laughs over "that movie we did together."
