Your new movie The
Amityville Legacy - in a few words, what is it about, and what can
you tell us about your character in it?
in short is about a family get-together, once the toy
monkey comes in the picture, father starts seeing visions of disappointed
granddad telling him to murder his family. My character is a little sister out
of 5 kids and comes to the reunion with her boyfriend, they blatantly have sex
a few times, but she still just wants the whole weekend with her family to go
well with everyone as it slowly goes horribly wrong.
Amityville Legacy being about a family get-together gone horribly
wrong - is that a situation you can at all identify with (apart from the
murders I hope)?
My family get-togethers just consist of me and maybe Dustin going to my mom's
house in the country, so far nothing has gone horribly wrong, but if anything
were to go wrong she would have a good secret place in the country! (jk
What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how
much Breana Mitchell can we find in Breana, actually?
With my character in the movie, it was easier to get into the role because
Dan, who plays my boyfriend in the movie is my actual boyfriend in real life
so that made it more comfortable to do those more risqué scenes and the
jealousy scenes with Cheyenne. I wouldn't say I'm as outwardly sexual in
How did you get
involved with the project in the first place? And also in regards to your
filmography so far, is horror at all a genre you're also fond of,
I got involved in this movie, well because I
work on just about every other movie with Dustin [Dustin
Ferguson interview - click here] and I love Amityville
movies so I just had to. Horror movies really are my favorite genre, I
could go years watching nothing but horror, I would however do a comedy if
the idea ever came up.
can you tell us about your directors Dustin Ferguson [Dustin
Ferguson interview - click here] and Mike Johnson, and
what was your collaboration with them like?
Dustin has made
probably close to 50 movies and music videos and I really think they get
better with each one he does. This one is great because of the use of the
drone shots and great lighting and sound and picking amazing actors. This
was my first movie working with Mike Johnson but he was very cool and
professional and gave great advice for how to make the scene look, I would
definitely work with him again.
about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?
shoot, for me took maybe 5-7 days but when we do, it takes a good chunk of
the day so we all spend a lot of time together and we have a lot of fun,
they often have to shush our laughter when filming other scenes, I've made
so many friends from filming, it was awesome meeting Tony [Tony

we snapchat all the time. Jennii [Jennii
Caroline interview - click here] and Britney I've been friends with a long
time from filming and I think they are amazing actresses, I've worked with
Schuylar [Schuylar Craig
interview - click here] and Julia a few times they are also wonderful people and
future projects you'd like to share?
I just filmed a short
movie on Tuesday its going to be 60 seconds long along with about 40 other
directors with their 60 sec shorts, just about me getting a DVD in the
mail unmarked but says "watch me" and its me on the DVD being
chased by a guy holding a machete and wearing a skin mask.
What got you into
acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the
I've always been kind of into acting I was in some
plays in middle school and when Dustin started doing his movies I helped
with sound and just watching how everything happens made me want to do it
more and be in front of the camera and flaunt what I have for now lol. I
mean really I can't even count how many things I've been in now cause they
just keep adding and I lose track.
Let's talk some more about The
Amityville Legacy's director Dustin Ferguson [Dustin
Ferguson interview - click here] - you have worked with him
before quite a bit, so do talk about your earlier collaborations?
One of the first ones
I did was called Deadly Doll, it was about 15 mins long and again I
get an unmarked package at my door and its a creepy doll that then escapes
from the box and eventually pulls me under the bed to turn me into a doll.
That's one I will always remember doing, its nostalgic. Dustin when he
writes movies he likes to kind of write the part for that person that he
has in mind for the role so it's super easy to get into my characters but I
do like to try and tweak each one as much as I can, I try very hard to
never re-wear outfits.
Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?
Feeling lucky ?

Professional actress-wise, Mila Jovavich is someone I really
adore. I really want a badass role like she has in the Resident Evil
Your favourite movies?
My favorite horror movies have to include the Evil Dead movies,
A Nightmare on
Elm Street, Child's Play, I love B movies too, anything with Danny Trejo, I
love the gore.
