STIR OF ECHOES
made her feature film debut in Susan Skoog's first film, Whatever,
released earlier this year by Sony Pictures Classics. Weil brought
a quiet vulnerability to the role of Anna in that film, the tale
of a 17-year-old girl facing the demands of young adulthood while
still having the emotions of a child. When the film premiered
at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival, critics hailed Weil's lead
performance as one of the most brilliant debuts of the year.
Her childhood was spent traveling around the world with her parents,
who were members of The Mad House of London, a prestigious comedy
troupe known throughout Europe. At the age of 7, her family settled
in a small town in Pennsylvania, and soon after, she began performing
in local theater. Without any formal training, her parents helped
guide her career, permitting Weil to travel several times a month
to audition for roles in Manhattan. After a series of standout
theatrical performances in such plays as Our Town and
The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man In The Moon Marigolds, casting
directors began to take notice of her.
She has since appeared on TV in the soap opera, "As the World
Turns," Nickelodeon's "The Adventures of Pete and Pete,"
and the NBC pilot, "Ties that Bind."
She has also appeared off-Broadway in the Playwright's Horizon
production of Life by Asphyxiation and has performed onstage in
several regional productions, including The Miracle Worker and
Fifteen Minute Hamlet.
Besides co-starring in Stir of Echoes, later this fall Weil will
appear Miramax's Cider House Rules, adapted from the John Irving
novel and directed by Lasse Halstrom.
