Your upcoming movie Devil's Domain - in a few words, what is
it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?
Devil's Domain is centered around high school kids and the
pressures and impact of social media to be cool and popular. I play
the Devil ;)
did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of you can
we find in her?
Well, my acting coach was the little devil
on my right shoulder, hehe. We all have a little darker side, so pulling
from my naughtier side and with the help of amazing costuming and makeup it was
easy for me have fun with my character.
From what I know, it took hours to put
your special effects makeup on every day - so do talk about that process
for a bit, and how easy was it to actually act under all that makeup?
yes! It took 5 hours each filming day to get into costume. It took us a few
fittings to make the body suit fit perfectly, I was covered head to toe!
It was extremely hot and heavy! The prosthetic makeup was so cool, which
was on my face blended with the suit. It molds to your face, like wearing
a second skin, which allows it to keep my features - eyes, cheekbones and
lips. It was a bit difficult to act in because of the movement restriction,
but at the same time helpful I really had fun with it.
can you tell us about your director Jared Cohn [Jared
Cohn interview - click here], and what was your collaboration
It was my first time working with Jared, he was
really great! I loved working with him and hope to again ... maybe next time
when I'm in my own skin.
Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set
whole cast and crew was great. I didn't get to bond much with the other
actors because most of my time was spent in the makeup chair until it was
time to film. One day we filmed in a really cool bondage club, the
atmosphere was very dark sexy creepy.
Another upcoming movie of yours is Clown
Motel - so what can you tell us about that one and your character?
character's name in Clown Motel is Angel. I can't say much about my
role as my cameo appearance is a surprise.
fear of clowns - is that something you can at all relate to?
my god yes! They have always creeped me out. My grandmother used to buy my
sister and I porcelain dolls and clowns every year for Christmas - I didn't
have the heart to tell her they freaked me out so I would nicely talk to
them and pack them up in a box and store them in the attic.
was it like working with your director Joseph Kelly, and what can you tell
us about the shoot as such?
He was fantastic, and also acts
in the film.
How did you get involved
with those two projects actually?
I auditioned like the
other actors, but Joseph and I were actually friends on Facebook, we
realize that after I got the role.
Any other current and
future projects you'd like to share?
Towards the end of
summer I am going to have a role on the webseries Kill 'em All Los
Angeles, season 2. It's an action-packed crime drama and the cast of
actors are fantastic. The show was created by talented Jesse Pringle who
also stars in the show.
got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal
training on the subject? And what can you tell us about
your filmwork prior to Devil's Domain and Clown Motel?
Ever since I was 5 years old I
wanted to be an actress. I have been in entertainment most of my adult
life in some form. I did a handful of sci-fi/horror films around 2012,
The Family and Piranhaconda, and then started a business which pulled me
out of acting for a few years. I am happy to be making it my main focus
again and am for the first time taking it seriously, studying with acting
coach Stephanie Feury.
acting, you have also done your fair share of modelling - so how do the
two compare, and how does one inflluence the other?
have... I love both but always try to envision a character and scenario
when doing photo shoots. I really prefer playing somebody else other than
just have to talk about Angie's Wieners as well!
of course. Angie's was a concept I created while on a autograph signing
for Jim Beam liquor out in Texas. The business got a lot of great press
and attention and we had a good 2 1/2 year run. I recently sold the food
truck, however may do something in the future with the brand.
would you describe yourself as an actress, and some of your techniques to
bring your characters to life?
think I just try to bring my real life experiences good and bad to my
acting. I've lived a interesting life with much happiness and some very
dark years as well...
Actresses (and indeed
actors) who inspire you?
