Your new movie Bite Night - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

The original working title of the movie was 'Party Of Valice' but the distribution company changed it to Bite Night so that pretty much tells you it's a vampire movie, it's about a group of punks who get invited back to an after party with a rockband and all is not quite as it seems . . . 

My character is called Sandra, she's the housekeeper in the mansion, she's more uptight and prim and proper than the rest of the vampires in the house. Apparently she was written as a nod to one of the characters in the film Clue but it's such a long time since I've seen it that I can't quite remember it, but I see her as a kind of female vampire version of Geoffrey from The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Dani Thompson can we find in Sandra?

 

Well Maria (Metheringham) [Maria Lee Metheringham interview - click here] likes to cast me in roles that other people might not and against my stereotypical typecasting, as usually I'd have been cast as one of the scantily clad rockband characters, but instead she gave me this more stuffy character to play. I always feel that costume plays a massive part in getting me into character, so the ruffled shirt and tweed helped.

 

I think there's always a bit of any actor/actress in the characters they play, I think I'm actually quite a multifaceted character, I have a lot of sides to me that do sometimes contradict each other, I mean as a model I wore next to nothing, sometimes nothing but then I can also be a bit of a prude so I guess Sandra has some of the sensible, stuffy Dani in her.

 

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

 

I've known Maria for ages, we almost worked together countless times on other people's projects that never seemed to materialize for one reason or another, and then she cast me as the feisty landlady Pam when she was making Pumpkins, and then asked me back for Bite Night.

 

As an actress who has come to fame primarily through her horror roles, to what extent could you identify with Bite Night's approach to horror?

 

This one has a very 80's feel, think Clue meets Night Of The Demons. It's fun, doesn't take itself too seriously and is a nod to retro-horror.

 

What can you tell us about Bite Night's director Maria Lee Metheringham [Maria Lee Metheringham interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

We've as I said worked together before and are friends, she's a 'gets shit done' kind of girl, every time I work with her I'm inspired to get my own shit together and get things done. She gets and idea, gets it made, and turns things around quickly. Her and her husband Will are a great team, power couple goals!

 

Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!

 

We shot in Snowdonia, which is the mountainous region in the North of Wales, right on the coast, and we all stayed in a big, old, haunted mansion with no wi-fi for the duration - ok so maybe it wasn't haunted but I like to think it was.

 

I wasn't actually there for as long as the rest of the cast but it was a lot of fun. I was in my element cooking in the huge mansion kitchen, I often end up cooking when I'm shooting films where everyone stays on location, I love it!

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I am in a Mycho movie called Pandamonium that is due to be released in early March, it was a first time for me working with Mycho and I loved every minute of that experience so keep an eye out for that one, and another movie I shot last year called I Scream On The Beach is in talks with distribution too, so keep an eye on my social media for updates.

 

Next up I'm due to start shooting a film called Dear Sister Margaret in the next month or so and I'm also midway through recording an album with Will Metheringham producing, watch this space.
