Clare explained how she came to portray Lindsey Lou in Pretty Broken, “I was filming another movie with our director Brett Eichenberger and writer Jill Remensnyder in Oregon in 2013. Jill said she had another role for me… I read (the script) and instantly fell in love with Lindsey and the story.” Clare signed on as the lead and producer right away but production was held until she was old enough for the character. “I had the advantage of having the script for so long I knew it by heart.” Clare says it also gave her time to research the level of grief her character endures.
Clare returned to her hometown of Portland, Oregon for the shoot, having moved to L.A. at a young age for roles including her double award-winning portrayal of pre-teen Abby Deveraux on the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Clare’s co-star, Tyler Christopher, is known for his roles on General Hospital and Days. Clare says, “Tyler was really on his game while filming.” She added, “Trained theatre people like myself and Christopher are sought out by the soaps due to the fast pace and our ability to learn lines, which is also very helpful on an indie movie.”
