Chucky the Caterpillar, one of the stars of Jordan Canning’s short film “Here On In” is a cecropia moth. He was named by Julia Kennedy, the girl in the film. Although he survived the long trip from Halifax and performed beautifully in the film, Jordan says he didn’t make it to adulthood.
“He had his fifteen minutes of fame and he passed away peacefully in a jar,” she says. “But he will be missed.”
