Your new movie M.O.M. Mothers of Monsters - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

A mother, terrified that her teenage son might be a psychopath, sets out to prove that he might be capable of something terrible. I play the son, Jacob, a volatile and duplicitous teenager who is caught in this insane game of cat and mouse.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Bailey Edwards can we find in Jacob, actually?

 

Initially Jacob seems like an impossible character to empathize with. Over the course of the film he’s cruel, sociopathic and at times almost completely inhuman. But ultimately this is very simply the story of a broken family. For me as an actor, it was that relationship and working with the incredible Melinda Paige Hamilton that brought Jacob to life. So in terms of how much Bailey you can find in Jacob, I’d say it’s in the powerful and complicated nature of the mother son relationship.

 

M.O.M. Mothers of Monsters was shot found footage style - so in what way did that influence your performance?

 


I think it really contributed to the feelings of entrapment and isolation that are at the core of Jacob. With cameras either set up around the house or in our hands, the shooting process was kind of uniquely naturalistic. Tucia would call action and it would just be me and Melinda trapped in the house together.

 

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

 

I actually self-submitted for the film on Backstage and sent in a self tape of one of Jacob’s monologues.

 

What can you tell us about M.O.M. Mothers of Monsters' director Tucia Lyman [Tucia Lyman interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

Tucia and I immediately hit it off. She is such a great director to work with, knowing just how to push me to go that extra mile. As coincidence would have it, we also live a couple blocks away from each other. So we could rehearse in her living room and after the shoot I could pop over to watch an edit. During post production, she also let me in on the whole process which really turned into a masterclass in filmmaking that I will forever be grateful for.

 

A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

When dealing with subject matter this intense, you need to have a set where in between you can laugh, dance and shake it off. We were not only lucky enough to have that but also an amazing team who made sure between the stunts and prosthetics and ANIMALS, everyone felt safe and secure.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Well I’m writing a feature with Lili Peper who I met on the set of M.O.M. Mothers of Monsters and am currently pitching a pilot I wrote with Mark Indelicato.

 

What got you into acting, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?

 

Well my dad is an actor, so I grew up on set. But acting really was something I felt like I had to go and figure out for myself. During college, I was lucky enough to go train at RADA and LAMDA. I also started training in the Suzuki method with the SITI Company, before going on to train with Kameron Steele and the Suzuki Company of Toga in Japan.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to M.O.M. Mothers of Monsters?

Acting for me really started in a very theater-centric world, but before M.O.M. Mothers of Monsters I’d done a number of shorts as well as small parts in My Dead Boyfriend and Netflix’s Bright.

 

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

 

I would describe myself as utterly devastating. Kidding. I think I’d describe myself as a collaborator. Maybe it’s because of my theater background, but it’s a team effort and I always want to dive in and see what we can all make together. In terms of technique, I’m all about doing something physical to get me out of my head and into my body.

 

Actors (and indeed actresses) who inspire you?

 

Olivia Coleman, Ben Wishaw, Regina King, Mark Rylance, Mahershala Ali, Taylor Mac.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Force Majeure, Harold and Maude, Ratatouille.

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?

 

American Sniper.
