As production of “The Drill” continues its freight train-like momentum towards completion and train stations and things, we thought we’d take a second to highlight the amazing cast that’s come together to help make this short film a reality. This production has been blessed by the participation of three phenomenally talented actors, who we’d like to introduce here.
Adrain Washington (Rufus)
Adrain Washington was born in Sumter, South Carolina and raised in New Jersey. He was the middle child of the 3 children of a blue collar father and a strong willed mother. After graduating from high school, Adrain enrolled at Hampton University intent on a career in medicine. However, he caught the acting bug while appearing in a student drama of Dracula which was nominated for 4 awards. Upon finishing, he moved to New York and began auditing classes at Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. He left NYU after only a few classes to seek work as an actor. With his determination, acting versatility and powerful performances, he had no difficulty finding work in numerous stage, television and film productions. He made his first big screen appearance in Hard Luck (2005) replacing Wesley Snipes. This is when his film career began to take precedence. Calculating and thorough in his craft, he continues to evolve his onscreen presence as a strong, calculating, but caring hero.
Nati Rabinowitz (Billy)
Nati is a NYC based actor and native of Brooklyn. In 2011 he appeared as a regular on the web series “Coversity,” and has since then filmed a number of shorts including “Where Dell Went”, “49 Minutes,” “Paradigm,” which won the Best Short Thriller Award at the New York International Film Festival and most recently appeared in “39 1/2,” a feature film by award winning filmmaker Kara Herold. He’s trained at MN Acting Studio where he continues to study with Matt Newton. NatiRabinowitz.com
