Shameless star Shanola Hampton has been tapped to join the indie psychological thriller, Through the Glass Darkly, from first-time feature director Lauren Fash. Hampton joins alongside Robyn Lively.  Lively and Hampton play Charlie and Amy, an unlikely duo that team up to solve the recent kidnapping of a local girl, a crime which echoes the disappearance of Charlie’s own daughter.

The script, written by Fash and Susan Graham, was featured in the Sundance/Women in Film financing intensive last year.

Filming is scheduled to begin in March with Graham producing via However Productions alongside Autumn Bailey-Ford of Autumn Bailey Entertainment, and Carmella Casinelli of Bon Aire Productions.

Hampton has spent eight seasons as Veronica Fisher on the Showtime series, Shameless, and is set to return for the ninth season of premium cabler’s longest-running and top-rated series.  We look forward to seeing Hampton on the big screen!
