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


The movie is about a horror movie star that has been snubbed by her boyfriend for a younger woman. Also he is making a new movie and never told her about it. This is the first film he has ever made without her and it enrages her. He betrays her and lies to her and she snaps.


In Axe to Grind you play a horror icon named Debbie, which isn't too far from the real you on paper - so could you find anything of yourself in her, and what did you draw upon to bring her to life?


It's funny this is about the 4th movie I have been in that I played 'Debbie'. There's always something in my nature that is true for all the characters I play. Regardless if the character is mentally balanced or not. I think that's true with most people, but some are afraid to either admit it or expose it. I love exposing the darker parts of my soul. The parts that are not so pretty or nice. That's the fun thing about acting, you can really embrace the elements that are completely not acceptable in normal life. We all experience rejection. I used my memories of pain and anger to fuel this character. I loved it.


Turning the last question on its head: Debbie is quite probably one of the more psychotic characters you've played during your career - so how much fun was it to play her?


She is very crazy. I have played a few psychotic characters and they are always my favorite. It was the first that was based on the business making her snap. Anyone in the business can tell you it's not hard to imagine feeling that way at some point. I love messing around with my image and not playing typical roles that most females get offered. So many can be very soft and the story can be misogynic. I adore these kinds of roles because I despise being a victim in real life and it is hard for me to relate to them even in movie roles. I have done it many times but this is more fun. I am far more in touch with my independence than my girlie side. I have a deeply sensitive side, don't get me wrong. But as any psychiatrist will tell you, the real emotion underneath sadness, depression or even feeling in a rut is unexpressed anger. I adore expressing it on film.


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


The writer/producer Scott Sanford [Scott C. Sanford interview - click here] contacted me and sent the script. I loved the role, as I have said, and was happy to take it.


Axe to Grind is a bit of a satire on indie horror moviemaking - and since you've been in quite a few indie horrors, does the movie in any way mirror your ow nexperiences, and to what extent could you identify with the film's humour to begin with?


Yes I think what works about the story is that it's pretty universal as far as the egos involved with film making. You see them all the time. I think the humour in the film comes directly out of the seriousness in playing the scenes. If we had of made the movie AS a comedy it wouldn't be as fun as if it were played straight - and it was. Anything that is really true to life will have a certain level of humor to it because we all relate. The dramas that go on in the film business are very campy if you think about it!


What can you tell us about your director Matt Zettell, and what was your collaboration with him like?


Matt was stellar! He was a kind, understanding and very artistic director. Considering the short time we had to make the movie he was calm, efficient and yet still had time to go over moments I had different thoughts about. It was a great opportunity to work with him. I really appreciated him.


A few words about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


While I am not avoiding the question the truth is it was such a short shoot, 4-5 days, it was pure work. There was not a lot of time to do anything but work, prepare for the next scene and sleep. I loved the experience but it wasn't like working on a movie for a month or so which is such a luxury in comparison! Everyone was always in good spirits though even with the time pressure.
