Holt’s ignorance paid off. After graduatin a two-year conservatory program in Dallas, Holt starred in the critically acclaimed indie thriller The Prodigy which he also co-wrote. He recently completed his third screenplay titled The Wicked Garden and is to start production soon on Sinners and Saints and For the Love of Jade. Unbreaking Up’s director, Boris Kievsky has selflessly vowed to use Holt on every future project regardless if there is a role for him or not.
