‘A Haunting at the Carnegie’ debuts Saturday

Features talents of young local actors, including Hollywood’s Emma Lyle

Somerset —

Halloween might have been last month, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still time for a good “Haunting of the Car-negie.”
A short film shot and produced in downtown Somerset at the Carnegie Community Arts Center, “The Haunting of the Carnegie” will debut Saturday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m., and will star some of the area’s brightest young talent. 
The project was written and directed by Emma Rayne Lyle and Ryan Lyle — the children of Nina Lyle, who serves as the film’s producer. Emma is only 10 years old and Ryan is 15, but both have a wealth of experience in the world of enter-tainment already. 
“Emma started acting when she was born, it seems like,” said Nina. “She was always pre-tending.”
Emma is a professional SAG (Screen Actors Guild) actress, who won a “Young Artist Award” for actresses ages 10 and under for her role as Emily Reddy in the 2011 Sarah Jessica Parker film, “I Don’t Know How She Does it.” She’s also been in television shows like “The Mentalist” and “Law and Order: SVU” and recently completed her 12th feature film.
Her brother Ryan introduced Emma to the world of acting, starting himself when he was 10. He now focuses more on the writing and storyboarding aspect of filmmaking, and is currently a sophomore at Southwestern High School.
Though the Lyle family has lived in New York and Los Angeles, they moved to Kentucky when Nina’s husband Grady got a job in the area — he’s in manufacturing, while Nine coaches acting for film and television. It wasn’t as difficult a transition as one might think.
“We are accustomed (to) and prefer living in a small town,” said Nina. Still, “we waited until the children made friends to start telling people about her acting career. We wanted to make sure she was able to make friends without acting becoming a part of the conversation.
