Carly and Christine Johnnie.

Frequent visitors to BBON are already familiar with Carly and Christine Johnnie. These two talented young ladies are featured in several BBON videos, from opening night at the new Farrell's to a look behind the scenes at a Curtis Theater Production. But, their appearances as BBON's kid reporters are just a small part of their exciting schedule.

Just recenly, both appeared in the three-weekend run of "The Wiz" at the Curtis Theater, and this weekend they were on the set in Santa Ana for a film called "Abigail". Directed by Tim Kressin and produced by Jamie Geoghan, the film tells the story of a 14-year-old girl struggling to find hope in the foster care system. Carly and Christine portray foster children.

The sisters are also featured as zombies in "1, 2, Z", directed by Genna Ford, a post WWII horror/comedy that premiered in December, 2011. They spent two days on the film set, with two hours just for make-up. But, the girls really enjoyed the stunt training they received and the film crew kept the set fun for all the kids.

Coming up in 2012, the girls appear as Irish dancing students in Katie Valovcin's "Treble Reel", set to be released in late Spring.  They also appear as school childlren in Cliff Breakfield's, "The Things We Left Behind", another film set for a late Spring release.  During filming, the girls had a reunion with another child actor they appeared with last year in "Wash Me", by Director Winston Tao.

These young ladies are so talented and love performing. With such a long list of credits in their young careers, we can look forward to more appearances in BBON videos,  Stagelight, the Jazz Festival, Farrell's, and film work.

As their Mom says, "They are busy".
