Spotlight on 2010 Judge, Deborah Twiss
Deborah Twiss was born in Philadelphia, PA and now resides in Brooklyn, New York. Her work as an actress and director has been seen all over the world, namely during her silver screen performance as Mrs. Zane in Kick-Ass. Deborah has also appeared in hit shows including Fringe, Gravity, White Collar, As the World Turns, and Law & Order: CI, to name a few. Her critically-acclaimed film A Gun for Jennifer won “Best International Film” at Fant-Asia Film Festival.
In addition to her commercial success, Deborah has dedicated countless hours to charitable causes. Her most recent contribution involved starring in a short film called Choose, directed by Robbie Bryan, which is a true story about a couple that need to choose between life and death of their unborn child when cancer strikes the pregnant mother. The film, to be released in 2011, was shot in order to honor those who have lost their battle with cancer and to raise money for cancer charities.
“I’m psyched about seeing the Project Twenty1 films, evaluating them, and present awards at the end,” she said in a recent interview.
