The team caught another break when Natalie Portman — who had been talking to Green about a possible remake of “Suspiria,” a Dario Argento horror movie set at a ballet academy — joined “Your Highness” as a Xena-like warrior named Isabel. (“Then she signed onto her other dark ballet movie,” Green says. “The rest is history.”). Portman, who was training for “Black Swan” when filming on “Your Highness” began, says she was initially hesitant about stepping into an environment that called for so much improvisational comedy and, in particular, about acting opposite McBride.

Founded in 1984, the Mission Hospice Auxiliary is a group of dedicated volunteers who raise funds and increase awareness of the services provided by Mission Hospice & Home Care. Their support helps ensure that everyone in the community has the physical, emotional and spiritual support they need to spend their last days with dignity, and surrounded by loved ones. The Auxiliary organizes a Bridge Day & Luncheon (Jan. 31 this year) and an annual Fall Gala (scheduled for Oct. 11), along with other special events throughout the year. In 2013, the volunteers raised nearly $200,000 to support Mission Hospice patients and programs.
