I read the actual release. Cheyenne Silver, the star of
Mystere and the Disciples of Dido, has been in a terrible
accident. These aren't photos of a film shoot going on swimmingly;
right now these are photos of hope that a beautiful young

She was kind and gracious, eager to embrace fandom in what
can be the overwhelming environment of Comic-Con. In the
years since, she occasionally dropped a note to let us know
how her career in the mainstream was going. Getting Mystere
off the ground was clearly a high point for her.

Bryan, for letting us know. To our readers, please pay careful

during her recuperation.
On December 12th,
2005, model actress Cheyenne Silver was involved in a serious
automobile accident, which resulted in severe fractures
across her skull, below the brain, and behind the eyes (including

in a songbird's life, it sings away its grief." As
creator and executive producer of The Villikon Chronicles,
and on behalf of the entire cast and crew, we will follow
the same pattern and brace ourselves for this one supreme
effort. A lot of great talent - talent who have all sacrificed

Shian Storm and the entire cast and crew are still as dedicated
as ever, and as Cheyenne Silver endures through this tragic
incident, join us in expressing our deepest concerns for
her welfare . Letters to Cheyenne Silver can be sent to
from the film -- a trailer was produced in November.
