Actress Angie Harmon (Law & Order) spoke to the Charlotte City Council today, making a passionate plea urging the council to approve plans for the proposed “Studio Charlotte” and the former Eastland Mall site.
During an economic development meeting earlier today, Harmon told council members that she is raising her three daughters in Charlotte because she loves the city, but she does not like having to spend many months away from them in Los Angeles filming her TNT series Rizzoli & Isles.
She said her current plan is to retire when her daughters reach high school in order to spend more time with them, but that if a new studio was built in Charlotte, she could continue to work locally while also raising her girls.
Harmon makes a great case for approving the new studio, while also setting a shining example of the kind of heartfelt celebrity support the North Carolina film industry as a whole needs in order to prevent the state’s vital film incentives from expiring at the end of 2014.
