The Elliott family—that’s Chris Elliott, Paula Niedert, and their two daughters, Abby and Bridey Elliott—is collaborating on a film for the first time. Written and directed by Bridey, Clara’s Ghost follows a self-absorbed showbiz family over the course of a single evening as they deal with personal demons. Niedert, the only member of the Elliott family who hasn’t made a living as a performer, makes her acting debut with the film. In this clip, Niedert talks about entering this new world.
