Some of the biggest news at Smith Mountain Lake in the past months has been the casting and production of the movie “Lake Effects”. Even bigger news is that Jane Seymour will be playing one of the main parts as Vivian Tisdale, the family matriarch. We are excited to imagine that perhaps Ms. Seymour will be seen about the lake occasionally as the movie progresses.

– Sara Tisdale – the main character, will be played by Scottie Thompson a Virginia native (From “NCIS”, and soon to be realeased thriller “Skyline)
– Lily Tisdale – Sara’s sister is played by Madeline Zima (From TV show “Heroes”, “The Nanny” and the Movie “Cinderella Story”)
– Carl Berger, President of the Smithy Research Society – will be played by Ben Savage (From “Boy Meets World”)
Other characters include: Mark Futterman played by Sean Patrick Flanery, Ash played by Casper Van Dien, Tyler played by Eyal Podell, Old Vic played by Richard Moll, Jim McCarren played by Richard Riehle, Winchester played by Ron Canada, Elizabeth played by Mary McDonough (Waltons) and a tourist played by Barry Papick.
