Faerlie Eldred

I have four passions: writing, film and TV, travel, and my dog. But most of my downtime is spent watching an inordinate amount of TV (no really… it’s unseemly). Forty-seven seasons of Law and Order and its various spin-offs have left me determined to be an extra on SVU before it’s too late. I’m a little bit in love with gangster films, a lot in love with 90s horror, and when I’m not on the couch I’m at the theatre—watching people on stage be talented, and silently sobbing because my acting ability is not up to scratch. Lucky you don’t need that to be an extra.
