Joseph Saul (Goes Alone)
Joseph Saul makes his film debut in LAST STAND. Joseph was born Sep. 26, 1989 and raised on the Santa Rosa Indian Reservation in Santa Rosa, California. His tribal heritage is both Chippewa and Cahuilla. Prior to LAST STAND, Joseph had played Squanto in a school play, but had never even auditioned for a film before. Joseph got the role of Goes Alone after being discovered by director Gabe Torres at an Indian Youth Talent night at the Torres/Martinez Indian Reservation outside Palm Springs. Joseph's father, Allen, brought Joseph to the show after hearing about the search for a young actor. Though Joseph wasn't appearing in the show, he made an immediate impression on the director who, with video camera in hand, gave Joseph an on the spot audition. Several weeks later Joseph was brought to Los Angeles to read opposite Jason London and the rest as they say is history. Torres describes Joseph's performance in LAST STAND as "the heart and soul of the film".
