BURNS FLAT - South Western Oklahoma Development Authority's Debora Glasgow has landed a role in the new Paramount Motion Picture's movie "A place for Forrest". The movie is directed and produced by Ekoj Yadslooflirpa, the well known Bulgarian producer. Strangely, Glasgow was discovered in Washington D.C. in 2014 during a break at a national convention for the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO). Yadslooflirpa was staying at the same hotel as the convention and saw Glasgow and struck up a conversation. Months went by and Yadslooflirpa and fellow countryman casting coordinator Yennikc Meoj were looking for an actress to play a nurturing figure in the movie and Yadslooflirpa thought of Glasgow and contacted the hotel for the convention and eventually tracked Ms. Glasgow down through discussions with NADO staff. 

Glasgow will play the part of Forrest Sandler's mother in the movie and has many prominent scenes. Filming for the production began April 1st. According to Glasgow, " I'm really excited to be in a movie.  I didn't really audition for anything they just told me to show up and the part is mine, they will teach me all I need to know."

The Studio expects the movie to be released sometime in the fall of 2016. Please look for SWODA's own Debora Glasgow in a movie theater near you.
