Leven Rambin, “Fern”

Tatterdemalion was made in West Plains, Missouri deep in the heart of the Ozarks. The cast was comprised of locals who had never acted before. Including the role of “Fig” played by Kip Collins. Kip has roots in the town going back hundreds of years and when he walked into the audition he was covered in hay. He thought his sister was playing a joke on him. When the cameras started rolling and he started speaking it was obvious to everyone that Kip was a natural.

Landon Edwards, “Cecil”

A national search was done for young children who could play Cecil. Landon Edwards heard about the casting and never having acted, his mom thought it would be fun to attend the local audition in Arkansas. Wise beyond his years, Landon is more comfortable in the woods hunting and fishing than anywhere else. He has definitely caught the acting bug though and hopes to continue working in front of the camera.
