Hallie Todd joins host Robin Milling to discuss The Last Champion. It's a family affair with Hallie acting, producing, and co-writing with her director/husband Glenn Withrow and their daughter Ivy. Hallie tells Robin the backdrop of high school wrestling comes from Glenn's own personal throw downs on the mat that were actually choreographed by professional wrestlers and given the seal of approval by his idol, former Olympian Dan Gable.
Hallie discusses taking on the role of the aspiring high school wrestler's alcoholic mother– a wonderful performance – and a complete 180 from Lizzie McGuire's mom! Starring Cole Hauser as the coach, wrestling with his own demons of failed glory, Hallie talks about their decision to cast him in the pivotal role, and how all the other members of the cast bonded in rural Washington.
