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


Murder Eleven is a psychological thriller about two cops trying to find a serial killer before time runs out for the 11th victim, which is me, Katey. My character Katey has stumbled down a dark hole of drugs and prostitution.


Your character Katey goes through some pretty extreme emotions - so what did you draw upon to bring her to life, and how much of yourself can be found in your character?


I did a lot of research on heroin. How someone would fall into that world. What the withdrawals do to a person, the ticks they have. The stories of loss were heartbreaking. It helped me realize just how desperate my character really was. She had lost everything and had nothing to live for.

I believe acting is just that Ė acting. I donít pull from my normal life for a character. If I did I would have to live with my therapist!


To what extent could you identify with the serial killer theme of the movie, and what were your first thoughts when you learned about the film's subject matter?


I love dark and twisty roles. It gives me a chance to really think outside of my every day box. I loved the script at first read. It has a VERY cool twist to it! The crazy thing is by the time we were filming in NJ there really was a serial killer picking off prostitutes. It was all over the news.


How did you get involved with the project to begin with?


I met the director, Jim Klock [Jim Klock interview - click here], about a year prior to reading the script. I was in a feature he was a producer on called Flutter. We met on set in Newcastle. After we both returned we started meeting up for coffee, talking about films, and became great friends. Before Murder Eleven we did a short film set in the 40s. We work really well together.


Do talk about your director/co-star Jim Klock for a bit, and what was your collaboration like?


Heís amazing to work with. I could call him at any time with a question about my character and he would walk me though it. Rehearsals were a complete open forum. He let me try all different kinds of angles with Katey and never let any idea go to waste. As an actor he gives you 100% all the time. In real life, as a director, and as an actor heís completely selfless.


What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


It was a 12 day shoot. My scenes were all at night. We would go to bed when the sun was coming up! The cast and crew were a cohesive unit. In between my takes they would always try and have a little fun or make jokes so I wasnít in that dark and twisty place at all times. Being tied up and tortured for 6 days straight can make you crazy.


To switch gears a bit, you've recently also starred in the comedy The Blackout - now what's that one about, what can you tell us about your character?


The Blackout is the polar opposite film to Murder Eleven. Itís basically a rock band that throws an epic party only to wake up to a dead body in the pool and zero memories of the nightís festivities! I play Jenny, the love interest. Sheís focused, driven, and torn between her career and her boyfriend.


What did you draw upon to bring her to life, and what can you tell us about your personal sense of humour?


I tried to keep her as real as possible. In a movie with as many big and over the top characters as this you need someone to be the anchor.

I tend to be surrounded by a lot of people with a dry sense of humor. I wouldnít have it any other way!


Now how did you get involved with this project, and between The Blackout and Murder Eleven - which kind of role/genre do you prefer as an actress?


I helped develop Blackout so I was there from the get go. Itís such a rewarding feeling to have a concept and see it all the way through completion.

As for the genre part of the question, I would say I like comedies more. Iím actually a HUGE scaredy cat! I can barely watch Criminal Minds without getting nightmares.


Do talk about The Blackout's director Matt Hish [Matt Hish interview - click here] for a bit, and about the shoot as such!


This shoot was insane! We had so many funny personalities on set which lead to a great deal of improvisation during the scenes. We had to cut multiple times because of laughter from the crew. This was Mattís first feature film and he did an outstanding job. He also played the villain so he had his hands full.


Any other present/future projects you'd like to talk about?


I recently just produced and acted in another thriller called A Haunting of The Innocence. That was a 15 day shoot in Paso Robles, California. I got to work with Judd Nelson which was awesome! Iím a huge Breakfast Club fan!


How did you get into acting to begin with, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I started as a professional dancer in High School. My mom let me dance on tour, videos, commercials etc, as long as I kept my grades up. I also started modeling at a young age which took me all over the US, Europe, and South America. After that the entertainment bug bit me and I started acting. I trained with top coaches all over LA for about 4 years. My last and favorite class was at Gray Studios in North Hollywood.


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


I canít remember - thatís terrible, right?!?! I can tell you that to this day when it is one of the greatest feelings Iíve ever experienced.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to The Blackout and Murder Eleven?


Right before that I worked on a RomCom with Jane Seymour and Kellan lutz called Love, Wedding, Marriage. That was filmed in New Orleans. I lived off of chicory coffee and beignets.

On the Newcastle shoot I spoke about early I played Billy Zaneís wife. Watching him on set was priceless. I learned more there than in a year of school!

I also love to get involved in webisodes, videos, and shorts. Iím an acting junkie! I just love to be working on a project. I did a really fun music video called Blinded with Anderson Davis. Ladies, you may know him as the Zesty Guy! That was a great shoot! I got to be a bad ass.


How would you describe yourself as an actress, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?


Iím committed to my role. I do what feels right. I donít over think or over-analyze it too much. I try and live in the moment and react honestly as the character. I personally donít like to over-rehearse or work a scene to death. I feel like you ruin the magic.


Actresses (or indeed actors) who inspire you?


Iím obsessed with Kate Winlset. I think she handles every genre with ease and a sense of honesty.

Meryl Streep is beyond any other female out there. I donít know how she does it.


Your favourite movies?


Donít laugh, Iím all across the board on this one.

Princess Bride, Fight Club, Braveheart, Dark Knight, Bridesmaids, Dirty Dancing, Dark Crystal, and In Bruges.
