Quincey Krull, a Minden High School alumna, recently starred as “Mini” in her first film, called “The Last Hug”, produced by Chicago Filmmakers.
Written and directed by Raza Siddiqui, the film is about Mini and her emotional journey in search of answers about her father.
While it is her first on-screen experience, Krull has been performing since she left Minden, beginning with two years traveling with the Young Americans based in California.
With YA, she had the opportunity to gain performance experience with singing and dancing, as well as traveling across America, Europe and Asia.
“I needed to go to Chicago for acting.” Krull said. One of her teachers from high school had recommended Chicago as the place to be if she wanted to start acting, so she went.
Krull lived with relatives in a Chicago suburb as a live-in nanny for one semester while attending a community college and knocking out general education classes.
She then moved to Columbia, located in downtown Chicago, to begin work on an acting major. “I lived downtown, but there are campuses across the city, so we commuted by train.” Krull added, “There was an L-Train outside our dorm, so I’d be talking to my parents and there would be all this racket in the background.”
Krull ended up at the University of Illinois-Chicago and continued working towards an acting degree. It was a professor who first told her about the film auditions.
