With a cup of coffee nearby, Tammie Ciccarelli speaks warmly of the benefits she’s seen from a movie being filmed in Fremont.
She remembers the young man who came mid-afternoon for a casting call in January at her downtown business, the Polymath Cyber Café. Auditions weren’t set until that evening, but the man came at 2:45 p.m.
“He was the first one here,” she said.
The man didn’t get a part, initially, in the Christmas film “12 Days of Giving,” but when he did, he stopped by the café to share the good news.
