Divine Role

Lindsay Younce, a 2004 graduate of George Fox, landed the lead role in Thérèse: The Story of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux almost by chance. During a national talent search for the movie, released last September, more than 100 actresses auditioned to portray Thérèse Martin, a 19th century French girl who became a Carmelite nun at age 15. Though she died of tuberculosis at only 24, her autobiography became a devotional best seller. She was canonized in 1925.

Initially, director Leonardo Defilippis was not satisfied with the candidates. Then he saw the audition tape of Younce, who had not intended to audition for the part.

"When I heard they would be filming this movie in the area, I called to see if I could just be on the set," Lindsay says. "The person who took the call mistakenly thought I was calling to get an audition." Before she knew it, Younce had landed her first film role.

Lindsay Younce as Saint Therese The movie was actually completed four years ago after Younce graduated from high school. But because it is an independent film (produced by Luke Films) paid for entirely by donations, it did not gain release until this fall.

Lindsay honed her craft at George Fox, appearing in such plays as A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Crucible, Man of La Mancha, and A Shayna Maidel, to name a few.

"I appreciated the fact George Fox was a Christian university that respected the arts. You don’t have to do a ‘Christian’ play to see God’s love come through it," says Younce, who earned a bachelor’s degree in writing and literature in 2003 and a master of arts in teaching degree the following year. "The productions respected the art of theatre while still maintaining integrity."

As for the opportunity to play Thérèse, Lindsay approached the role with enthusiasm and reverence. "I was so excited to get the part, but at the same time it was intimidating," she says. "The magnitude of the whole project was bigger than I expected. The role itself taught me a lot. So much of her life is a mystery, yet her love of God is so clear. She was so free to express herself. She really took to heart the verse that speaks of being like a child to enter the kingdom of God."

The National Champ of Literature

Gina (Withnell) Ochsner continues to dazzle the literary world. The 1992 George Fox writing /literature graduate’s short story, "The Fractious South," was published in the Aug. 23 issue of The New Yorker. The national magazine claims heavyweight status in the intellectual and artistic world. Its readers, Ochsner says, are the kind of people who "buy cheeses with names that are hard to pronounce."

"It’s like winning the national championship of literature," says Becky Ankeny, professor of English.

Ochsner - an adjunct professor at George Fox - already has won dozens of national and international literary awards, including the Flannery O’Connor Award for her book of short stories, The Necessary Grace to Fall. Another of her stories has been selected for "Best American Non-Required Reading 2004," an annual collection of short fiction and nonfiction pieces.

What’s next besides raising three children under the age of nine? Her second book, People I Wanted to Be, will be published by Houghton Mifflin in May. She’s also submitting another piece to The New Yorker and has promised a novel to her publisher.
