StoryCorps Tampa Bay: Young Actors Follow Their Dreams
Not every friendship starts on the set of a movie.
But that’s how Tampa teen Shelby Ronea and fellow actor Noah Diggs of St. Petersburg met. The pair was among the actors tapped for the Haley Joel Osment film, “ Sex Ed,” filmed during the summer of 2013 in Tampa. The film will be released on November 7th.
In this installment of StoryCorps Tampa Bay, the 15-year-olds talk with Shelby’s mom, Renea Elmore, about their love for performing and their hopes for the future.
This week's StoryCorps Tampa Bay was produced by Mary Shedden.
