Alaska seamstress lands role in whale movie

By Mary Beth Smetzer
Fairbanks, Alaska (AP)


North Pole resident Janie Snyder was visiting her sister Rosabelle Rexford for Nalukataq, a spring whaling celebration in Barrow, when the unexpected happened.

The two 60-something sisters were out and about, having fun, chatting and greeting relatives and friends when they heard a voice behind them say, “There are the two we’ve been looking for." Perhaps it was the sisters’ colorful parkas or their comical antics that attracted a casting director to approach them for the film “Everybody Loves Whales,” starring Hollywood starlet Drew Barrymore.

Ohhh.. this is so neat... I have one of Janie's coats. They are truly wonderful artistic works. I'm so happy for her!

How awesome! Janie Snyder is my nieces grandmother and this article written by Megan Smetzer is wonderfully written. It explains Janie to "t". Janie has been sewing as long as I have know her. Growing up in Fairbanks I worked with her son and the rest of her family and they could not have picked a better person to portray Alaska and Barrow so accurately. Janie is a wonderful woman and is so full of life. I look forward to seeing her on the big screen. And more importantly see home!
