Blood Fare is a Civil War ghost story with a modern twist by J.A. Steel and co-producer Christian K. Koch. It is the tale of Corporal Henry Trout (S. Edward Meek – Wild Stallion), who in 1861 fought valiantly in a forgotten skirmish after the first battle of Bull Run. 150 years later, he will come face to face with his descendants as the battle for blood continues on a haunted battlefield. Tyler (Brandi Lynn Anderson) and her brother, Chad (Adrian West), Henry’s fifth generation grandchildren, will challenge the very legend of Charon the Ferryman, as the lines between the living and the dead become blurred.
Gerard plays the character of Professor Meade, mentor to the protagonist Tyler, in Blood Fare. Gerard was recently seen in the Syfy original movie Ghost Town. International action star Kim Sonderholm, most recently seen in the newly released Little Big Boy, appears alongside Gerard as Professor Malick.
In addition to Anderson, West, Gerard and Sonderholm, several other talented actors have joined the Blood Fare cast, including Michelle Wolff (“NCIS”, “Chicago Hope”, “ER”, and “Providence”), Savannah Ostler (Vengeance), Bridget McManus (Wanted), Scott Beringer (Ocean’s Eleven and 21), Brenden Whitney, Alison Trouse, Thomas J. Post, Antonio Lexerot, and April Knight. Marcus Intheam, Salt Lake City star radio DJ, and “The Real L Word Live Lounge” host Natalie M. Garcia add live broadcast talent.

He demonstrated his unique creativity in Hellboy, Underworld, Men in Black, Men in Black 2, The Green Mile, “The X-Files”, The Faculty, Spawn. and many other productions.
