Your new movie All Girls Weekend - in a few words, what is it all about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

All Girls Weekend embodies the mantra "girls just wanna have fun", unless nature's involved.

Without giving too much away, let's just say that everything that would be attributed to force majeure happens to the girls, times ten. Amid the horrors there's one person who eases tensions and serves as the comic relief; that's Gem, my character.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much Gema Calero can we find in Gem, actually?

 

I drew the best out of me to play Gem. Writer, director, producer Lou Simon [Lou Simon interview - click here] wrote the part for me and it was lovely to see that she based it out of what I consider are the purest parts of me. Gem has the best lines, in terms of their overall effect on the audience. Hopefully viewers will have a laugh or two while enduring horror, and as dark as that may sound, that's what Gema Calero tries to do in life. For me, laughter even in the midst of despair is paramount.

 

How did you get involved with the project in the first place? And to what extent could you identify with All Girls Weekend's horror theme?

 

Anything Lou Simon asks me to do, I will do lol. All Girls Weekend highlights the atrocities human kind is committing against the environment. If I didn't identify with that, I'd be the biggest villain of them all. Talk to my good friend, Leonard Dicaprio, he'll give further comment.

 

What can you tell us about All Girls Weekend's director Lou Simon [Lou Simon interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like? And since this was not your first movie with Lou, what can you tell us about your previous collaborations, and how did you first meet even?

 

I met Lou when I first began my career. We went to a film festival, fell in love and the rest is history. I've worked with her on three films, and on the next I'd like to work with her behind the camera.

 

With the film being filmed mostly outdoors in wintery conditions, how did that affect your performance, and do you consider yourself at all an outdoorsy kind of woman?

 

The last thing I would consider myself to be is an outdoorsy kind of woman. It was VERY challenging to work with the elements, especially on a low-budget film, but when I see how naturally beautiful  it came out (no pun intended) I was glad I put my big girl panties on and got through it.

 

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

 

We were literally fighting against Mother Nature, and I think what pulled us through and made the film fantastic was our collective sense of humor. Shout-out to Neil, the sound engineer, who made me laugh incesssantly.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I was just in North Carolina for two weeks filming an episode of Good Behavior, which stars Michelle Dockery of Downton Abbey and will air on TNT in the fall. Please tune in and hashtag #biancasboobs. My character's boobs were the most important element in the episode. 

 

What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?

 

I went to magnet school when I was a child, and unfortunately the acting bug bit me. That's a horror story in itself. I have received formal training, but I shy away from any "technique training".

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to All Girls Weekend?

 

It's been a nice ride, especially when I went to Cannes Film Festival for my work in Swingers Anonymous.

 

How would you describe yourself as an actress, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?

 

I consider myself to be a bada$$ actress. Can I say that? Lol. My technique involves reading the text, respecting the writer's intentions and then creating a character that pays homage to both the story and my imagination.

 

Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?
