Pop Singer Brianna Haynes Co-Stars as Pop Star on ABC's "Castle"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 29, 2009) - Pop singer Brianna Haynes will co-star in an episode of "Castle" which airs Monday, November 2nd at 10pm/9c on ABC. Being a recording artist in real life, Brianna Haynes was chosen to play the demanding role of pop star "Hayley Blue" in the episode "Famous Last Words."

While filming the episode, the crew quickly realized that Brianna was a "perfect fit" because of her abilities to sing, dance, perform, and be comfortable in front of the camera. She was also able to execute the dangerous and physically challenging stunts including hanging upside down off the side of a building.

"One scene involved me running up and down a slippery three-story fire escape in high heels while dancing and singing," says Brianna Haynes. "It was difficult because I had to concentrate on safety while performing at my best."

Brianna was easily able to play the role she is getting used to in real life. "I felt very comfortable playing a pop star because I understand what it's really like to be a singer," says Brianna. "When they say 'action' you are performing just as if you were in concert and the curtain just went up."

The tradition of singers crossing over into acting is not new but with Brianna Haynes it is happening early in her career. After just releasing a debut album, it's rare for a new recording artist like Brianna Haynes to land a featured role on network television or major film. The singers that accomplished it, such as Mariah Carey ("Precious"), Whitney Houston ("The Bodyguard"), Beyonce ("Obsessed"), and Celine Dion ("Flowers On The Snow"), did it later in their careers.

"Brianna has a rare and unique talent with her natural ability to sing like the greats, be an accomplished dancer, and now make a smooth transition into acting," says Sergio Ponzo, album producer and President of Righteous Rebel Music, LLC. "Artists like Brianna Haynes don't come around very often."

The full episode (#207) can also be viewed after the air date at www.abc.com.

The self-titled debut album "Brianna Haynes" is available nationwide on iTunes, Amazon.com and rrebel.com.
