Sean Faris plays Rick, the lead character, in the feature film Forever Strong. The film is about a troubled young man who loses his position as the star of an Arizona Rugby team after being sentenced to a boy's home in Salt Lake. Based on a true story, he finds himself playing in the national championships against his old team (which is coached by his Dad!). It sounds like a great script and Sean is the perfect actor to play the role! Shooting now on location in Salt Lake City, the film will be released in Fall, 2007.
