Jamaican-born actress Kimberly Huie makes director debut in “The Intervention”

Jamaican-born actress Kimberly Huie, renowned for roles in hit series such as Grey’s Anatomy, CSI and Andromeda, has embarked on a new project which sees her don the hats of screenwriter and director. Huie’s new project, The Intervention, which was premiered at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival in 2014, adds the title of filmmaker to her already impressive resume.

The Intervention is a short film which focuses on a protagonist, played by Huie, who struggles in denial. The female lead is then confronted by her closest friends who then stage an intervention to bring their struggling friend to the realization that her denial is crippling to her. The intervening then leads to a clash of the personalities of each friend which then unfolds in a surprising twist.

The short film is Huie’s directorial debut and it created quite a stir at its 2014 debut when Jonathan Ali, editorial director of the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival labeled it, “a pitch-perfect, hilarious short.”

The Jamaican native also boasts an impressive TV track record having recurring roles on the series such as Philly, Leaving L.A., Push, The Great Defender, and Catwalk. Huie also appeared in the pilots Raising Dad, The Corsairs and D.O.A.
