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

 

Obviously the film had an official synopsis, but I think you can interpret it in different ways. To me it’s about grief, loss, perhaps about a certain state of mind, and perhaps about the paranormal. If you’re a religious person you could perhaps even interpret this in a slightly different way. You’d have to watch the film to see what I mean of course! My character Lexi is the film’s lead. Beyond her emotional journey and some backstory she’s slightly mysterious.

 

House of Lexi is in a way a film about trying (and failing) to cope with loss - is that something you could at all find in yourself? And what did you draw upon to bring your character to life?

 

Oh yes, absolutely. There were several things I could pull from over the past few years including the deaths of relatives and friends, perhaps in particular my close friend Pete who tragically passed away from a heart attack in 2016. I think about Pete very frequently. I often wonder, if I could turn back time, would be any way I could have helped prevent a few deaths. Not to get too deep, but my cat dying in my arms after wasting away from kidney disease (with all the quite disturbing things that go with that at the end), and having loved and lost a few times all gave me material I could reference in my mind. I think personally that I have the appearance of being fairly stoic on the outside, but rivers run pretty deep on the inside so there was enough to draw on. I hope I’ve done Lexi justice and conveyed the emotions she might be feeling.

 

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

 

Director Martin Daniels [M W Daniels interview - click here] approached me about a year ahead of shooting. When I read the script I thought it was the kind of film I might make myself as a writer/director, which of course sparked my interest. The character was a serious role, to be honest the kind of role I’d wanted to act in since first appearing on screen, but which had never come along until that point in time.

 

To what extent could you identify with House of Lexi's rather slowburn approach to horror?

 

Well anyone who knows me knows I love arthouse horror. I prefer a deeper more intelligent approach to horror that seeks to explore the human psyche and takes time to provide wonder in beautiful and engaging visuals, rather than lots of gore, jump scares and a cut and dry story.

 

What can you tell us about House of Lexi's director M W Daniels [M W Daniels interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

What a nice person Martin is, and super talented to boot! Martin is a very relaxed individual who puts his cast and crew at ease, and welcomes input while still maintaining his directorial vision. He’s passionate about his work and that clearly shows in the end results.

 

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

 

It was great, we managed to shoot everything fairly quickly and smoothly over two days. There was one funny incident where we drove around and around North London trying to get to the east coast to film the beach scenes. The traffic was awful in the area for some reason, I wasn’t sure if we’d make it to the beach. But we did, and how amazing are those drone shots!

At the minute I'll be supporting Martin with his festival run, attending as many screenings as possible. I’m also giving my own film Salient Minus Ten its final festival push, and ultimately release. Then I’ll be progressing my next film, tentatively titled Flowers Falling in Hell, which is fairly under wraps right now.
