Perhaps you have seen her. She has been in numerous Michigan films. Both as an extra, and more recently in acting roles.
Her name is Shirley Moon Koebbe (pronounced with a silent O, ie Keb-be). Cast in the feature film “A Bennett Song Holiday” she will appear as “Svenska.”
According to Nancy Oeswein, ““Shirley plays a lovable character who provides a surprise twist in the film. We are excited to have her in what I think is her second speaking role. I can’t tell you much without spoilers, but she will be a memorable character.”
Written by Nancy Oeswein, Harley Wallen will direct “Bennett’s-Song Holiday” a sequel to the award-winning “Bennett’s Song,” a tale of a modern day, blended family with a diversity of fourteen adopted children.
Congratulations on this well-deserved role, Shirley. You are a hard-working actress in Michigan and a very important member of this creative community. We are so proud of you!
