Lyndsy Fonseca filming Fort McCoy!

Lyndsy Fonseca is currently filming the dramatic film Fort McCoy. She stars as Anna alongside Eric Stoltz and Camryn Manheim. This movie is based on the real-life story of actress/writer Kate Connor’s own mother and is being directed by Michael Worth. The story revolves around the Stirn family who lived in a cabin in Wisconsin near an army base and a Prisoner of War camp during World War II. Lyndsy competed at IMTA in 2003 where she won Honorable Mention for Young Miss Talent of the Year and 2nd Runner up for Young Miss Dancer of the Year. At the convention, she signed with an agent and manager and moved to Los Angeles for her first pilot season at age 13. The following year, at 14, Lyndsy booked a three year contract as Colleen on The Young and the Restless. When the contract ended she worked on various projects such as: Heroes, Close to Home, The Beautiful Ordinary, How I Met Your Mother, Phil of the Future, Big Love, Intellectual Property, Waterfront, Cyber Seduction, I Do, They Don't, Malcolm in the Middle and Boston Public. Lyndsy also shot several national commercials and starred in the film Remember the Daze. She starred in the hit show with fellow IMTA alum Eva Longoria Desperate Housewives! Lyndsy just finished filming the drama Austin Golden Hour and is in post production on Kick Ass with Nicholas Cage. In an interview with IMTA Lyndsy said:

"IMTA was a lot of fun. It's how I imagine college might be - where you room with a bunch of other girls and then go off to classes together. Only one year after IMTA, I was offered a contract with Y&R!"

Stayed tuned for more information on Lyndsy in Fort Mc Coy!
