Carole Mikita Reporting"The Work and The Glory" premieres tomorrow night at Jordan Commons. Tonight, Carole Mikita introduces us to the movie's female lead.

Actress Tiffany DuPont landed the coveted role of Lydia McBride. You may have seen her in "Cheaper by the Dozen" with Steve Martin and on television in 'Joan of Arcadia' and 'Yes, Dear'. She knows this performance is one book fans will be watching.

Tiffany Dupont, 'Lydia McBride': “She’s very proper and she’s an educated nice girl. But at the same time isn’t worried about the rules or etiquette necessarily, or will jump on a horse if she has to, or tell her parents how she feels.”

Tiffany Dupont has a degree in music and violin performance, which she put to good use in "The Work and The Glory". Playing the lead female role of Lydia McBride, she is a young woman faced with choosing between her family and her love for a man who has a new faith.

She believes faithful readers of the book series will be pleased with what they seen on screen.

Tiffany Dupont: "I liked how well the script maintained the themes in the book. There are other movies where it's completely different and I think we capped the heart of the novel in our script."

Tiffany Dupont will not be here for the world premiere tomorrow; she is acting in a film being made in India, in which she plays Queen Esther of the Old Testament, also starring, Omar Sharif.
