LOS ANGELES, CA (March 16, 2010)-- Actress on the rise Cassandra Sawtell has been nominated for Best Performance in a TV Series (Comedy or Drama) at the 2010 Young Artist Awards for her work on the CBS series HARPER’S ISLAND. Cassandra joins fellow nominees Valentina Barron, Ryan Newman, Miley Cyrus, and Miranda Cosgrove in the category.

Of being nominated, Sawtell shares, “I’m really surprised, excited, and honored to be nominated with such wonderful actresses, and I’m looking forward to attending the show.”

The critically acclaimed, 2009 series HARPER’S ISLAND followed a group of family and friends who travel to a secluded island off the coast of Seattle for a destination wedding. The island is famous for a streak of unsolved murders from seven years ago. Although they’ve come to laugh and to love, what they don’t know is they’ve also come to die. In every episode, someone is killed and every person is a suspect, from the wedding party to the island locals. By the end of the 13 episodes, all the questions are answered, and the killer is revealed (Sawtell being one of the few survivors.)

Sawtell is most recognized for her role as “Madison Allen” on HARPER’S ISLAND, however, was recently seen alongside Colin Farrell starring as “Olga” in the Sony Pictures Classics film THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS, which was released theatrically in December 2009. In addition to these projects, Cassandra has been seen in over twenty five television and film projects, most notably on Showtime’s THE L WORLD, Sundance Channel’s TERMINAL CITY, the CW’s SMALLVILLE, USA Network’s PSYCH, and a lead role in the Lifetime movie IMAGINARY PLAYMATE.

The 31st Annual Young Artist Awards will take place on Sunday, April 11, 2010 at The Beverly Garland in Studio City, CA.
