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


I don't want to give too much away, but the film centers around a family whose rights are violated when a group of masked men enters their house uninvited. Lindsay has a lot of heart and is definitely the fighter of the family.


Hate Crime isn't exactly a film that depicts the most ordinary of events - so what did you base your performance on, what did you draw upon to bring your character to life?


I have a very strong bond with my family. I have 8 siblings that I love dearly and a mother that I would do anything for. I tried to use the feelings I have for my own family within the film. Being in the location I was and working with such talented actors definitely made it easier to channel my character.


What drew you to the project to begin with?


I'm not going to lie... I am not the biggest horror fan. I might be a little bit of a nancy! In the event that I do make it through a whole horror film, sometimes Iím like, "well, what was the point of that?" Although Hate Crime is deeply disturbing I feel that it conveys a very important message, and thatís what really drew me in.


Hate Crime consists mainly of one long continuous single shot. What kind of a strain did that put on you as an actress - and how much rehearsing went into this, actually? And could you ever be tempted into doing another single shot movie?


We rehearsed for a whole week before we began filming. It was definitely exhausting, but everyone formed such a bond throughout the process, that you just tried to stay positive and motivate everyone else to keep going! There may have also been a little cheating with the shots, but you can talk to James about that one. Depending on the script I would consider it.


A few words about your director James Cullen Bressack [James Cullen Bressack interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?


Ahhh James! I love that guy! The more projects I do, the more I come to realize how important it is that you trust your director. I have nothing but trust and respect for James. He was able to maintain not only a professional environment, but a fun one as well. With a project of this nature its so important to have a good time during the filming. A script like this takes such an emotional toll on you that you need a little bit of comic relief. He can direct me any day!!


What can you tell us about the on-set atmosphere as such?


Definitely positive. We bonded so much that at first it was a little hard to get into the scenes with Tim, Jody [Jody Barton interview - click here], and Ian [Ian Roberts interview - click here]. They are such sweethearts that you really need to be able to set that aside and let them terrify you. In the same aspect, I think it was a really good thing that I did get to know them so well before we started shooting. It allowed me to really trust them when the camera started rolling.


Hate Crime is an at times quite violent film - how could you relate to that aspect of the movie?


Luckily I can't. Everyone deals with things from their past, but I have never experienced anything THAT traumatizing.


Let's go back to the beginnings of your career: What got you into acting to begin with, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I hear stories from my family about me entertaining them with scenes from Home Alone when I was like 5. It is something I have always been passionate about. I actually majored in Theatre and Film in college. I was lucky to have amazing teachers that truly inspired me.


Can you still remember your first time in front of a movie camera, and what was that experience like?


I remember the first commercial I ever shot. I think I was a freshman in high school. I was on set and everything was moving so fast. They were actually ahead of schedule. I definitely freaked out and was like "Mom, I canít do this! I can't do it". She gave me a pretty great pep talk. She's an amazing woman, that lady! The cameras started rolling, and when "action" was yelled all my lines started pouring out of my mouth. They were like "Cut! Perfect Debbie, do it just like that again!" I don't think I have ever been so nervous in my life!


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Hate Crime?


I recently shot a comedic pilot called Dudes Can Manage. I also acted in a short film titled By Any Means. I wrapped on the first half of The Right Eye. And I recently hosted an episode of the The 7 Days Show for the Santa Monica Mirror.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


There are a few things in the works. One of which is a film trilogy called The Third Eye Project. I can't tell you too much about it, but we will be shooting in Taiwan sometime soon and I'm very excited. I also recently shot a promotional trailer for a film called Roomies, which should be filming soon. At the end of this year I will be filming another short called The Sad Truth of Believing. And Iím in the running for two other films right now, so keep the fingers crossed!


How would you describe yourself as an actress?


Iím consistently trying to learn when it comes to acting. I feel that I am versatile and can do anything from romantic comedies, to period pieces, to horror films. Iím always open to new roles and hope to explore as many genres as possible.

I have a woman crush on Rachel McAdams. Iím in love with Sandra Bullock, and am continually inspired by Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Ryan Gosling, and Joseph Gordon Levitt.


Your favourite movies - and of course, films you really deplore?


I have a long list of favorites but a few among those include: Wedding Crashers, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Family Stone, The Princess Bride, The Departed, aaand of course The Goonies.

I'd rather not bad mouth any production. Even if it turns out terrible, I know that people still put their time and effort into it, and I can appreciate that.
