with Dawn Perllman

Your new movie Ready for My Close Up - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character?

 

I would best describe it as a black comedy. It’s about an ageing movie star who embarks on a series of misadventures down memory lane! I play Nurse Becca, I say “nurse”, but you’ll have to watch to find out more!

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Charlotte Mounter can we find in Nurse Becca, actually?

 

Not a lot, thankfully. I wanted to make her completely different to me, she is much harder, streetwise and not the quickest! I love the Carry On films and Hammer horror, so I drew inspiration from a little of both!

 

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

 

I was approached by Stuart & Jen Morriss from Misty Moon Productions, who sent me the script. I love working with Stuart and Jen and this was my third film with the legendary Lynn Lowry - I just love her, we have a nice rapport on screen.

 

To what extent could you identify with Ready for My Close Up's approach to both horror and humour?

 

A lot, actually, I think we can often find humour in very sad/tragic circumstances in life. It’s sometimes how we deal with it and get through things. American Werewolf in London is one of my favourite films, I find myself laughing a lot at the graphic horror in that! Ready for My Close Up is perfect mix of horror and humour and audiences seem to be loving it.

 

Do talk about Ready for My Close Up's director Jason Read, and what was working with him like?

 

Jason is fantastic, he works quickly and efficiently. He always gets the job done and he is multi-talented as he is a wonderful musician, too.

 

A few words about the actual shoot and the on-set atmosphere?

 

Lynn is always great to be around, Gary Shail never fails to make me laugh, he is so funny and I love working with him! Jen made great bacon sandwiches and endless cups of tea. It was great. Of course, you Michael are a legend for writing this script [Michael Haberfelner interview - click here]. I loved our scene in the film...

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

Yes I have a feature film coming out in the next couple of months, and my husband and I are working on a film project with Misty Moon called Chuck based on Charles Manson. Busy times!

 

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

 

with Lynn Lowry

I have always loved performing. I sing too, and have treaded the boards in West End musicals. I went to the East 15 Acting School and graduated with a BA in Acting. and it all started to kick off from there.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Ready for My Close Up?

 

I have done a mix of indie feature films that have been growing in stature/exposure as well as shorts that have had great runs of success at international film festivals.

 

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

 

I trained at a method acting drama school, so I always like to get into character by “being them”, embodying their movements/mannerisms and being as real as I can.

 

Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?

Your favourite movies?

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

 

I’m not a huge fan of subtitles in films, but I wouldn’t say I deplore them. It’s more of a distraction.

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

Thanks for the interview!
