USA Today Locations Round-up

Not a huge presence, but it's nice to see more pieces highlighting the work of local actor, Luce Rains.

From Hooray for Locations Outside Hollywood

Character actors such as Luce Rains, who lives in New Mexico and works a lot in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, may be reaping the biggest benefit by making movies away from Hollywood. He lived in Los Angeles for 10 years, but ultimately chose New Mexico for a better quality of life — and more work.

"I've done everything from Westerns to urban cop movies," Rains says. He got a plum supporting role in 2007's 3:10 to Yuma. "New Mexico is good in that it has that much variety. It's a pretty clean place to work."

While living in New Mexico doesn't prevent him from crossing the border, he's very thankful he doesn't have to deal with Los Angeles' traffic on a regular basis...
