Your new movie Angel of
Reckoning - in a few words, what is
it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?
Reckoning is an intriguing action/thriller revolving around a suicide brought about by drugs, the porn industry and the control
and greed for money. I play the lead investigator put in charge of this
case, Detective Miles Trufont.
did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of
Frederick Williams can we find in Detective Miles Trufont?
drew upon to bring this character to life was our current social situation that is a part of our society, as well as our law enforcement
officers who are faced with situations of these types of issues on a day
to day basis. And also with a lot of us living in these same situations or
through hearing or reading of it through our news medias. I grew up amist
the spiraling drug trafficking as a child growing up in the public housing
areas. I want to note that a lot of us grew up out of that, with some of
us staying away from the influences of drug abuse and trafficking through
other interest such as sports, which was in my case. With Frederick, you
can see the understanding in the character Detective Miles.
did you get involved with the project in the first place?
met director Len Kabasinski [Len
Kabasinski interview - click here] at a filmmakers’ meet and greet and he had
mentioned that he had seen me in another movie character that I played in
(There Are No Goodbyes). He then told me that I could be a fit for a
character he had in a project that he was working on. Len was a personable
director from our initial meeting. We became FB friends shortly
can you tell us about your director Len Kabasinski [Len
Kabasinski interview - click here], and what was your
Like I said, Len was personable and
confident. As Len and my friendship grew on-line, he started talking to me
about the character that he thought I could play in the movie he was
scripting. Mind you, this was over a long period of time so it gave me
time to get a feel for what kind of character that he wanted. We talked
about the movie Shaft and the detective in that movie.
What can you tell us about the shoot
as such, and the on-set atmosphere?
The on-set atmosphere
for me was focused and serious. My character had to be that way and Len
set the pace for me to be that way by allowing me the time to prepare. I
tried to come on every scene not as Frederick but as Det. Miles. All the
shoots for me was “Right On” because of the great casts selection!!
