Midsummer welcomes Dedeker Winston to the Cast as The Feyist!

Yes, I know that the Feyist picture is already up, but we thought it would be nice to actually show everyone what Dedeker actually looks like. (My fault - Steve).

Dedeker Winston has been acting, dancing, or performing for most of her life. She graduated from CSU Chico with a BA in Theatre Arts and shortly afterward relocated to LA to act professionally. She has recently made appearances in SpikeTV's "1000 Ways to Die" and The Discovery Channel's "The Science of Fear". She is currently in production for a new comedic television pilot, "$1 Book Heaven."
