Parker Padgett talks about his latest film ’ICON’

Parker Padgett recently joined host Elias in the cave! You can see Parker in his latest film 'ICON' as Same on August 1st across all TVOD/Digital and Blu-Ray/DVD platforms throughout North America.

Young love's the topic of so many films, but rarely is it handled with earnest, authentic grace, as we see in "Icon". Anchored in the touching performances of Parker Padgett and Devon Hales, audiences will find themselves moved much like fellow beloved indie film "The Spectacular Now." When a surprise pregnancy forces Sam to face many brutal realities of adulthood and responsibility, things spiral rapidly out of control as he simultaneously tries to fight to find his own truth: why his absent father hasn't been in his life since he was one and is only a fading memory.

"Icon" was inspired by a true story and stars Parker Padgett ("Surviving Lunch") and Devon Hales (Netflix's "Teenage Bounty Hunters," "Stan Against Evil"), along with Julia Denton ("The Fundamentals of Caring," "Geostorm"), Tony Demil (Succession," "Zola"), Bryce Anthony Heller ("Education in Love," "Cobra's World"), and the feature film debut of Ronald Sansone.

Adapted from an award-winning short that won the presidents' award at Ringling College of Art & Design, "Icon" was filmed in Ahedo's hometown of Saint Petersburg, Florida, just prior to the pandemic. The story pulls elements from his childhood growing up in the mid 90's through the early 2000s in Florida.
