Your upcoming movie A Grim Becoming - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character?


A Grim Becoming is a horror/comedy about a character named Raphael reluctantly transforming into a grim reaper. Raphael resists the transformation - unaware that his resistance only speeds up the process.

My character October is an inappropriate, self-centered, rude, obnoxious brat. Due to her relationship to Raphael, October is in turn collateral damage. She experiences many transformations both physically and emotionally.


How did you portray your character, and is she someone you can personally identify with?


I approached playing the character, October, by channeling my busy, stressful, hectic life into a powerful feeling of snotty emotion. I actually felt a sense of internal release after venting those feelings in this role. Although I do not personally identify with the character October, I'm sure my mother might say otherwise.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place?


After developing my relationship with director Adam Steigert [Adam R. Steigert interview - click here] during the film Ombis, I was approached by him with the role of October which he said he had written with me in mind. I was honored and gladly accepted. Now that I think about it, however, the fact that Adam thought of me as he was writing a bratty character, might not have been a compliment!


What can you tell us about your director Adam R. Steigert [Adam R. Steigert interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?


Aryn with director Adam R. Steigert

Adam is amazing. He is my friend. Our energies have always been in sync and I have felt a connection with him on set that is different than I have experienced on other projects so far.  He has had complete confidence in me and my acting abilities since I first auditioned for him 3 years ago. My favorite thing about working with Adam is the trust he shows in me and the freedom he gives me. He allowed me to interpret October how I felt she should be protrayed.


A Grim Becoming's brand of humour - how easy was it to adapt to it, and what can you tell us about your own sense of humour?


I loved the humor in this film. The question isn't "How easy was it to adapt to?" but should be: "How hard was it to not crack up during a scene?"!

My sense of humor absolutely matches the style of comedy in A Grim Becoming. Mike "Scabascooby" (Magoo) and Brandyn Williams (Raphael) [Brandyn T. Williams interview - click here] had me laughing my latex off!


Aryn with Brandyn T. Williams, Mike Sciabarrasi

Do talk about the actual shoot and the on-set atmosphere for a bit!


Shooting was definitely a learning experience for me. I had the opportunity to grow as an actress and becoming October was a blast, but it wasn't all fun and games. I had to get accustomed to 16 hour shoots in full prosthetics. It was hot, itchy and sticky. I tried, but I will be the first to admit that a little bit of my own inner October may have shown itself once or twice. Working with veteran horror actors such as Melantha Blackthorne [Melantha Blackthorne interview - click here], Bill Oberst Jr. [Bill Oberst jr interview - click here] and Devanny Pinn [Devanny Pinn interview - click here] was a privilege. I particularly loved spending time with Devanny. She took it upon herself to advise me and her help and mentoring was awesome. I will treasure my memories of working on the set of A Grim Becoming. Always.


Any future projects beyond A Grim Becoming you'd like to talk about?


I currently have a few projects that are coming up between now and spring. Just when I think my schedule can't get any busier, I seem to add five more things!

I love working with Deftone Pictures Studios, and as far as projects for Deftone, you would have to ask Adam. 

Well, Adam? Do I have any projects coming up? There may be a few rumors out there... stay tuned to find out!


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you take any acting classes or the like?


I started acting in the fourth grade in a school play. I have been in every school musical since then and then some. So I guess that's what started it for me, although it seems like I have tried to get involved in anything that catches my eye, from singing or dancing to voice overs and opera. I recently even modeled this month for Buffalo Fashion Week under two local designers. I go to school full-time and I am on the cheer squad, I haven't been able to take additional acting classes separate from Drama at school due to my full schedule. I am planning to make Dramatic Arts my major so I am sure I will be diving into those soon. My first film was The Final Night and Day, directed by Adam Steigert and I was an extra. I can still do a pretty good zombie girl!


Do you still remember your first time in front of a movie camera, and what was that experience like?


My first experience on camera was in the middle of a field full of other zombie extras. I was wearing a sun-dress and a tiara. I was covered in fake blood. I was so excited that one of the principal actors jumped over me after I was "DEAD", I thought I was certain to be in that scene but, the shot was cut :( Although my debut scene on film was cut, you can see my elbow once or twice if you look closely, ahaha.

I knew that day that this is what I was meant to do.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to A Grim Becoming?


Except for what will surely become the "Famous Elbow Scene" in Final Night and Day, the only previous feature film I have done was in Ombis, a Deftone Studios production. I played Haley - a precocious little girl from a small town invaded by Aliens. I have done a few other projects as an extra but Haley was my first real character for me to explore.


How would you describe yourself as an actress?


Always growing. I see myself as a developing actress. I haven't even come close to my full potential (if that's even possible). I am grateful that I have been given the opportunity to act and I am thankful for the support I have received from my friends, family, but mostly my mom. My mom is amazing! Without her I would never have accomplished all that I have and I can't imagine doing this without her.


Actresses (or indeed actors) who inspire you?


Leah Michelle Inspires me. She is such an accomplished, well rounded performer and I see myself pursuing a similar career. I want to do it all!!!

Anything else you are dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?


No, I don't think so... but I'd just like to thank all the wonderful people involved in Deftone Pictures Studios. They have welcomed my mom and me into their crazy world of movie making and I love them. They have truly become a second family to me. They have made it possible for me to live my dream, work at my craft and be able to be recognized for my work, which has given me the chance and ability to do interviews like this.


Thanks for the interview!


Thank you for your time Mike, it was a pleasure.
