Your upcoming movie Lost Hero: The Search for Dr. Obsidian - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

Lost Hero is a documentary-style exploration of larger than life pulp hero, Dr. Obsidian. Writer/director Mark Kochinski takes us on a time-machine journey as we discover the colorful history and are granted access to never before seen film footage from the serials from the 30's starring this dashing man of mystery! 

 

In the film, I've been cast in the modern day Dr. Obsidian Hollywood blockbuster. I'm so excited about the film that I do the whole dressing up all 40's thing, stalking the director and showing up at the auditions unannounced. I even go on a day-time talk show dressed as the coveted character, ala Sean Young. I scare the director so much he HAS to hire me! Oh, but I can't really talk about my character, because I've been sworn to secrecy and there's an important plot point that musn't be revealed!

 

So how do you prepare for a role like the one in Lost Hero: The Search for Dr. Obsidian?

 

Well, you have to make sure that the line that goes up the back of your stockings are straight, and you must know how to make the perfect Whiskey sour. Also, you must speak very quickly and make very drole wisecracks while puffing up a storm on your Chesterfields.

 

Lost Hero: The Search for Dr. Obsidian heavily draws upon pulps and serials from the 1930's, approximately. Somthing you can at all identify with? And what do you think about the retro set designs and effects of Lost Hero: The Search for Dr. Obsidian?

 

I absolutely adore the 30's and 40's. I really do feel like I'm some kind of throwback to an earlier era. I especially love the stars of the 40's like Joan Crawford, Betty Davis, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart. I transport back in time with films like Casablanca, Mildred Pierce, Key Largo, and Double Indemnity. My mom used to drop me off at the local theater every Saturday during summer break when I was a kid and I fell in love with The Perils of Pauline, so I'm a big fan of those old time serials!

 

What drew you to the project in the first place, and what can you tell us about your collaboration with Lost Hero: The Search for Dr. Obsidian's director Mark Kochinski [Mark Kochinski interview - click here]? And how did you two hook up in the first place?

 

I don't quite remember just how Mark and I originally became friends, but we've been friends for over 20 years now. I know he was already working as a visual artist, and he would come over and hang out with me and my then boyfriend, Steve Palty. We'd sit around and chat about movies, our favorite directors and such, while drinking whiskey. Mark always impressed me with his extensive film knowledge. I only recently became involved with his Lost Hero project when he asked me to help spread the word about it on Facebook. I was like, are you kidding me?! I love this! I must be a part of this! I'm made for this!

 

As far as I know, Mark Kochinski has also somehow worked you into his designs for Babylon 5 in a rather ingenious way - care to elaborate?

Yes, Mark created images of me to use as nose art for a couple of the fighters on Babylon 5. I thought that was very cool!

 

As far as I know, Lost Hero: The Search for Dr. Obsidian is still in its fundraising stages - anything you can tell us about the fundraiser, and where the project is going to go from there?

 

Mark would love to raise the funding he needs to finish his documentary style film with the Kickstarter. Whether the Kickstarter is successful or not, I have no doubt that there are plenty of investors with deep pockets and big imaginations that would love to get on board of this classic in the making!

Any other future projects of yours you'd like to talk about?

 

Right at this moment I'm about to hop on a plane to Florida where I'm filming A Blood Story with director/writer Joe Hollow [Joe Hollow interview - click here]! Joe and I are the executive producers and I am also playing the pivotal role of Elizabeth Bathory.

 

I'm also going to be playing Mia in David R. Williams' film Manifestation later this year [David R. Williams interview - click here]. I'm really excited about working with Melantha Blackthorne [Melantha Blackthorne interview - click here], who I just adore! She is such a talented woman, and she stands for a lot of the same things I do, such as protecting animals from abuse and cruelty. It also stars Michael Berryman. I was fortunate to work with Michael on Evil Spirits, starring Karen Black, so it'll be somewhat of a reunion. Also Wolfgang Meyer is the DP [Wolfgang Meyer interview - click here], and so I know this film is going to have a unique quality that will have people taking notice! I worked with Wolfgang on Disciples, and I have a lot of respect and love for him.
