NYTimes: More on Lily Wheelwright

Neil Amdur, for The New York Times, takes a look at the tragic and untimely death of actress Lily Wheelwright. Lily died, apparently of a drug overdose, a mere week after the new film she stars in (Ry Russo-Young’s Orphans) premiered at SXSW 2007 and won a special jury award. Seeing this picture of her in the article, with her gift bag from our Awards Party in hand and posing along with Young and “Superman,” she seems to be having a nice time at SXSW. While I know Ry, I never got a chance to meet Lily… and I never will. Very sad.
