Your upcoming movie Beauty Secrets - in a few words, what's it going to be about? And what can you tell us about your character in it?


Beauty Secrets is a sci-fi film following 56 year old Amanda Gray turned 25 due to an experimental drug produced by Frank Stein Industries. Amanda discovers a secret about the drug, a secret that Frank Stein Industries wants to keep quiet. The character, Amanda, has a fire about her that she rediscovered after being rejuvenated by the drug. She's stubborn, a little bit wild, with a touch of vanity.


You first played your character Amanda Gray in a couple of short segments of Epitaph: Bread and Salt - so do talk her "birth" in that one briefly, and what were your first reactions when you learned she, of all characters, would get her own movie?


Amanda Gray first appeared in Epitaph: Bread and Salt as the spokesperson for Frank Stein Industries. Her entire minute on screen consisted of checking herself out in the mirror. So naturally when Nathyn Masters [Nathyn Masters interview - click here] approached me with the idea of showcasing Amanda Gray's story in her own film my immediate reaction was, "Why not, it'll pair well with Palpoo the Ewok's story."


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and always supposing you're not a 56 year old woman caught in the body of a twenty-something - how did you even prepare for such a role?


It's weird to say but I'm not entirely convinced that there's a huge difference between the mind of an 'adult' and the mind of a mid-twenty something year old. Age just shows how many more years of practice you've had with bulshitting. So I mainly focused on preparing the characteristics of Amanda's movements and tonality as well as exploring what events in her life would influence how she reacts in the film's situation.


What can you tell us about your director Nathyn Masters [Nathyn Masters interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like? And how did you two first hook up to begin with?


Oh Nathyn Masters, the dude is so in love with film and film making that he makes all the DSLRs blush. Collaborating with Nathyn is just that, a collaboration. He's constantly open to ideas and he shows that he trusts his actors. Almost each time we're setting up for a scene the most direction he gives is blocking. If something emotional needs tweaking he'll nudge you in the right direction. I met Nathyn through Heather Dorff oddly enough [Heather Dorff interview - click here]. This indie film community is starting to feel like the game Six Degrees of Heather Dorff.


As far as I know, principal shooting of Beauty Secrets took no more than one day - so what kind of a strain was that, and what can you tell us about the shoot as such?


It was mentally exhausting. And all I did was act, I can't imagine everything Nathyn went through that day. We were not only short on how much time we were able to shoot but also how much we had available to shoot. The script was only ten minutes long and we were all challenged to extend that into the film you see today. Somehow we got through it.


Should the Amanda Gray character ever be brought back for another movie, would you be back?


I'd certainly come back! SHOULD I come back, I'm not sure. Amanda's story seems to have been told in full. Maybe she comes back as a ghost... annoying Frank Stein's people.


Any future projects beyond Beauty Secrets?


At the moment, I'm completely focused on Fangs Vs. Spurs, which has an incredible cast and crew! Every time I come to set it feels like I'm working with family. Here's the IndieGoGo link where you can check out some of the footage on the campaign video:

Also later in the year, there's a Notebook Entertainment production that I'm looking forward to and then next year I'm working on a musical with Faux Pas. I'm still in the process of reading through a few script that's I'd love to be a part of. Hopefully I can give you more details as they come.
