Otto (Cary Hite), does not speak, but the movements of his eyes, and tightening of his mouth in anger as he wields his gun suggest a reservoir of hidden emotion.

Cary Hite, a talented actor with an adorable smile, makes the conflicted Brandon believable.
The Quiet Model
The Quiet Model is a play very loosely based on historical events that surround John Everett Millais's painting Ophelia. Millais (Cary Hite) finds himself haunted by the ghost of the mysterious model (Marguerite French), who sat for him. She follows him while Millais coyly and furtively refuses to reveal her identity. His obsession with the painting causes a furor among London society and drives a wedge between his friend Dante and his laudanum-addicted wife, Elizabeth (Megan Ferguson), who may or may not have been the inspiration for the painting. Certainly all of London believes that she is.
With Millais on the edge of madness, and his own marriage foundering, the truth comes out between Millais and Elizabeth. Actors Hite and Ferguson do a lovely job with this sad, private, and emotionally intimate scene. Millais saw Elizabeth's sister Christine commit suicide, and did nothing to stop it. Instead, he captured the moment on canvas, and has been haunted ever since: "I found her and I never even tried." Millais defends himself to both Elizabeth and the ghost.

As Thomas' son Corin, Cary Hite has his big moments in the later scenes, and he handles them well.
